Not sure where to put this: Help with wording

Recommended Posts

Yes Ann. Please do. I haven't heard from the minister yet so I would kinda like to get familiarized with what i'm going to say. I hope I don't slur or stutter them.

No problem! He (Brad) sent us a sample of some vows like 2-3 days before we left for Mexico. We pretty much used them as-is, with a few tweaks. And we did the hand blessing, nothing else additional (no sand ceremony, etc.). This attachment is exactly what he sent us, without our revisions.

Oh I love the participation required by the guests. So cute for them to add their "we do." Only thing I'm not fond of is this: I take you to be my wife from this point forward, to join with you, and to share all that is to come, to be your faithful husband, to give and to receive, to speak and to listen, to honor and to obey.

Sometimes obeying is good...hehe but I don't like them in the vows. Another form of wording here?

Rachel - you can change it to what you want it to be, I don't remember if we changed that part or not. It sounds bad - but the actual vows themselves weren't something we spent any time on!

Thanks Ann! And I totally agree, Rachel. I'll obey him when he says, "Let's go to bed" or "Let's have dinner" or something like that, bt if he was like "Wash the dishes, beotch" then forget it! Hehe.

I like that, to honor and respect. Sounds perfect!

We were going to write our own vows, and I was REALLY nervous about it for some reason. I didn't want his to be silly and mine to be serious, whatever. So when I found this I just loved it. It's perfect for us. Plus when I showed the whole thing to Doug he didn't mention the part about writing our own, he just said "this is nice, i like it".

Abbie, repeat after me:

I, Abbie take you Doug to be my husband /

I promise above all else to live in truth with you/

and to communicate fully and fearlessly/

I give you my hand and my heart /

as a sanctuary of warmth and peace/

and pledge my love, devotion, faith and honor

as I join my life to yours.

Very pretty Abbie! I wanted to write my own vows- I'm pretty good at expressing my feelings but Steve would not and will not. I've tried for MONTHS to convince him but he's afraid he will sound like a stammering fool. Oh well, maybe he will write me a nice card..

 

I've made so much fun of him because he never writes me nice cards. He usually just puts "I love you, Steve." This valentine's day he finally put something else in the card:

Roses are red,

violets are pink, (ummm they are?)

The thought of missing you makes my heart sink.

 

I can't wait til March when we are together,

living it up and enjoying the weather.

When March 27th comes around and we say let's go

to get hitched and say "Viva la Mexico!!"

 

I just had to share. It made me giggle like a school girl. Now why can't he write his own vows?
