Help with non-traditional vows!!!

Recommended Posts

Okay, so my wedding coordinator just sent me the ceremony vows, and for the most part, they are great. However, the ceremony will end with this:

 

"Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I present for the first time Mr. And Mrs. ____________________"

 

The problem is, I'm not taking my fiance's last name; I'm keeping my own. Nor is he taking mine. So, what can this sentence be replaced with? I'm at a total loss. I want a conclusive statement at the end of the ceremony, and I want us to be "presented", I just can't think of how to word it.

 

Any help would be so greatly appreciated!

I am not an expert at all, especially about this stuff, which is why I always ask the forums, but I have been trying to do what I want rather that what is traditional. I would think something like Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I present for the first time as Husband and Wife, Mr. Hubby Name and Mrs. Your Name. Would that work? I think it presents you as Husband and Wife but is very modern.

Hello!

"husband and wife" is the best way to go if you are not taking your husband name. I also had one couple that choose to be introduced with their names : Sarah & Ian.

Your minister can help you build a more natural speech and avoid the "for the first time" part.

Hope it helps! Saludos!

I would say "For the first time as Husband and Wife, I present you with: (Fiance's first Name) and Bridget"

 

THen everyone can clap and cheer and cry tears of joy :)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
