Hi all!

 

My FI and I have written our own vows for our ceremony. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions about what kind of paper (or something else) we should write/print them on? I don't know if we'll look goofy standing up there with a piece of computer paper!

 

Also, do you have any thoughts on who should hold them or where we should put them during the ceremony? I was thinking the best man could hold them, but that would mean they would have to be folded up in his pocket somehow, so I don't know if that would look bad. I've tried researching this but I haven't seen too much information on how other people go about this. Any thoughts?

A lot of brides on here recently have been buying vow books. Another bride got a journal from Chapters that is hard covered. Do a quick Etsy search and you will probably find numerous ideas.

Couple ideas for who has them. What about a close family member who is sitting in the front row. They won't be walking down the isle as a part of the wedding party but are close by to hand them off.
Another idea would be to give them to the WC the morning of and she can get them onto the table you will be standing at with the minister. Assuming you have a table.

Hope that helps.

I purchased little vow books off of Etsy from a seller called Noteworthyandco (I believe that is how you spell it). Really happy with them :)

One of my bridesmaids gifted me our vows books as our engagement gift and she purchased them on etsy through the same vendor that Perianjay used!  The vendor has a lot of cute designs and custom options!  :)

@veryvalentine @perianjay Ahh I wish I knew there was such a thing as vow books, those are so cute - we leave Sunday so I don't think they'd get here in time :( I'll hunt around and see if anyone has super fast shipping!

 

@calgarybride2015 I think we have a table so that's a good idea, that way they won't be all crumpled up in someone's pocket!

If you did leave them with family, just make sure they know you don't want them stuffed in their pocket! Even give them to them in a nice envelope to make your point!

 

If you go the WC route just ensure she secures them or gives them to the Minister if it is windy out!  My guess is she would hang on to them until the Minister arrived and hand them off.

I'm going the vows book route but it's too bad you're leaving so soon. Wonder if you might find an Etsy seller that's local or could do an overnight. Also since its a trend what about checking a David's bridal store? They seem to have a bunch of small accessories things right in store.

Good luck! And I hope your wedding is everything you want it to be and more! Definitely post pics and give a review when you get back. We love to see pics and reviews always help future brides!!

@acw271011 thank you, and I definitely will! Very nervous and excited!

 

Even though its a little too late to order a vow booklet, you guys inspired me with the book idea, since holding a piece of paper just never seemed like a good idea...I think I'm going to get us each a nice moleskin notebook in our wedding colors (pink for me, orange for him) and write them in there so we have something nice and sturdy to hold. Plus, that way we can make edits and changes while we're there and just rewrite them and bookmark the right page. I'll see if we can leave them on the table under the arch, or have someone in the front hand them to us.

THANK YOU EVERYONE! This site is the best :)

Good idea with the moleskin books! It will also end up being a nice keepsake. When I showed my parent's mine and Chester's vows books my dad told me it would be so sweet to give those to our children one day. So cute..
