    Did you memorize them or have a note card?

    Was it hard to get through them without crying? I feel like we need to do a rehersal just so I can get the tears out of my system. I was thinking we'd read them to each other the day we do the legal ceremony. Not at the courthouse, but afterwards at home. I don't want to take away from the ceremony, but I worry I won't be able to control my crying & I'll have a red face & runny nose.

    Anyone want to share their vows?

      We wrote our own vows, yes we both teared up but I wouldn't change a thing. It was special sharing it on our wedding day, I even have our vows in a shadow box frame up in the house.

      DH memorized his and I had a note card, I knew their would be no way I would remember it.

        Did you carry the notecard in your hand? I think I'll write mine down incase I go blank, but I'm pretty good at memorizing stuff.

        That reminds me- he is supposed to write down what he said when he proposed. I was too dizzy & shocked to know what he said! I'd like to know now!

          I actually gave my vows to our WC and she handed them to me when it was my turn. Worked out perfectly..

            I would definitely carry a notecard, even if you are good at memorizing.

            You never know what your emotions might cause you to forget at that moment!

            We are incorporating our vows into the Hand Ceremony and having my uncle read it, so we won't be reading our own vows, but we'll be writing part of the ceremony to fit our ideals.

              Oh my gosh, I totally had these great vows that I was sure I had memorized. . . I mean it came from my heart, so it seems like it should be no big deal to keep it together right? Ummm, yeah, no! I completely lost it at the altar, mostly because his vows to me were so amazing & made me cry. When it came to my turn I totally had to improvise, and I know I didn't get to say everything I meant to. Although, I think all of that made it that much more memorable & special. My reccomendation: notecards!

                The vows almost made me cry, especially hearing his. But I kept it together though. I wrote mine on a piece of notebook paper a few hours before the ceremony. I was completely relaxed and ready to marry him so they just flowed out naturally. My MOH held onto mine until I needed them, and hubby kept his in his pocket.

                My MOH snapped this pic of me writing my vows at Las Caletas when I wasn't looking:

                  And he had the entire ceremony in front of him in a nice brown leather journal.
