    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.

      ooh thanks! now we can look at that and decide ourselves whether or not to bring our own for the priest to read or to just use that!

        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.

          Thanks for posting! Now I definately know I want to bring my own...I don't like those at all.

            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

              (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.

                      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 minutes? 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?
