ROR Wedding Vows script from Chandlyn, got it today

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies

 

If anyone is wondering about the vows for the ROR I have attached them here. I receieved them today from my TA. I believe they are the same ones from last year. The only thing she requested the vows for the civil ceremony and they still say "holy" so I guess they use the same vows for both civil and religious ceremonies.

Yeah, we were trying to decide whether or not to prepare our own but as soon as I read these from Chandlyn we are 100% doing our own. I'm not crazy about these vows at all.

 

FYI, if anyone is thinking of writing/preparing their own vows, there is a GREAT vow repository here on another wedding forum. FH and I completely "stole" the ideas of these brides for our vows.

 

Kvetch: Vows => Giant Vow Repository Here!

 

If you are at all sentimental I would get some tissues ready- some of the vows there made me cry like a baby! The best ones are a few pages in.

There is also a reading repository, which is where we got our unusual readings.

 

Kvetch: Vows => Can we make a giant ceremony readings repository?

 

 

Hope these are as helpful to some of you as they were to me.

We were married by Minister Sheldon. We brought our own vows and he read them perfectly and beautifully!! We were very impressed with him (he does the religious ceremonies) - we added quite a few things and he didn't skip a beat. Not a single error in the ceremony. He rocks!

Here are our vows; if it helps rolleyes.gif

 

(Name), I love you. You are my best friend. Today I give myself to you in marriage. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort. I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard. These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life.

LOL Those are the vows I had originally picked!! After I looked on indiebride I changed them a bit to suit us a bit more but I love the line "to always hold you in the highest regard," and "when life seems easy.....an effort" lines. Beautiful! Did you cry?? I'm afraid I'm going to cry.

Also, just a word of caution to brides who are not preparing their own vows/ceremony----My husband and I actually used a stopwatch to time three different weddings before ours. They were FOUR minutes. It seemed very anti-climactic to us to prepare for your wedding for months and have all of your guests travel that far for a four minute ceremony. I would definitely recommend adding a sand ceremony or something to make it longer. Ours was 15-20 minutes. We wrote it start to finish and included a hand ceremony and a sand ceremony. We had Erril Grant perform our ceremony. We had asked for a civil ceremony. He did OK, but he stumbled a few times and goofed up our order which made me mad since all he had to do was read it. It was the only time we saw this judge/minister at the resort. All other ceremonies were performed by a different man---I think Mr. Sheldon. We had the option of meeting with the judge first, but it would have cost another $50.

Yea, we tweaked them a bit too! :)
Surprisingly, I didn't cry! I was so in the moment. And I'm totally a cryer - TOTALLY! Cry at every wedding I go to. rolleyes.gif

I am bringing my own as well. I am not the creative type so I have found something online that I really liked.

I was going to go with just what they had...but four minuteshuh.gif? Sorry to sidetrack the thread...not my intentions...

What does the sand ceremony involved? Do they do the wording and guide you or is this something you do yourself? What is involved? Maybe someone could pm me?

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
