I’m in a similar situation.  My FI wants us to write our own vows and I’m a nervous wreck.  We have the whole ceremony written (we took bits and pieces of things we liked from other ceremonies and changed some wording around until it was perfect for us.  

He’s been adding to a note saved on his iPhone for over a year now (sometimes he’ll wake up in the middle of the night and think of something and write it down!) I have nothing 🙁  He is very good at this stuff and is very comfortable speaking in front of people and I am neither of those things so I’m struggling.  

He is gone this weekend for his “bachelor party” (they are hiking Mount Washington) so I think I might take the next two nights and try to use missing him as inspiration for writing down my feelings.

I think what I’ll do first is write down all the things that I love about him and what he means and then try to form it into a complete thought.  It doesn’t need to be long or rhyming just your thoughts.
