Vows

Has anyone thought about vows yet?  Are you writing your own, doing the traditional vow or a combination of both?

Re: Vows

  • Doing the traditionsl ones that end with "Tell death do you part."

    I am not one for speaking in front of large crowds, especially mostly adults.

  • Wait so are there two different types of vows? 

    There are vows where the B&G each 'repeat after' the officient one sentence at a time, but then there vows where the officient just rattles a bunch of stuff off and at the end of each, the B&G simply say "I do"

    ...Do people do both or just one over the other?

  • Definitely traditional ones. I'm really bad in speaking in public and I think I'll be a crying mess anyways. I think the easier we make the vows the better!

  • I'm not sure.  I kind of want to read FI this poem I wrote him a while ago, and FI has written me some really beautiful things that I would love to share.  We'll probably do a combination.

  • I had a co-worker sign her vows. It was great!

  • Wow, I feel like such an odd couple now.  We're writing our own vows and never even considered using the traditional set.  I don't think of it as pressure to write (yet) - I love the idea that we'll be committing personalized things to each other in front of our family and friends.

  • I have never seen "obey" in the vows.

  • We are writing our own and doing kind of traditional ones. He really wanted to write our own so I am letting him. We will probably incorporate some of the tradtional ones too though. Since one of our friends is our officiant I can make her say whatever I want. lol

    I have been to a couple of weddings that left the "obey" part in and it was almost awkward.  Very old school and I didn't care for it.  It basically says that your wife must obey you and pretty much be submissive.  More along the vows my grandparents or great grandparents made.
  • We are probably just going to be repeating after the reverend. We are both nervous wrecks in front of large crowns. It would be a big ol mess. LOL

  • We're terrified at the thought of having to write our own because we're both really bad at that kind of thing...
