Question for those who wrote their own vows...

Recommended Posts

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 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:

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
