I’m not in a similar situation, but if I were a guest at your wedding, I would think it was sweet if you said your vows however you normally speak to her, whether that is sign or voice.  If it’s sign, it would be nice to say them aloud too for the guests who don’t know sign but the guests hearing them is not as important as the two of you.  Have you asked her what she would like best?  That’s definitely the biggest thing!

I am not in a similar situation but i think it would be soo cute if you learned how to sign your vows to her as well as speak them so that everyone else at the ceremony who doesnt sign gets to hear them. & incase you mess up she can read your lips 😉

I agree, it would so adorable to see you sign the vows and to hear them.  I bet your guests will feel the same.  Good luck to your FI with the surgery!

hmm, I don’t have a partner with a disability, but I think it would be nice if you would both sign and speak.  Does your Fiancee have any deaf friends/family?  Signing would be nice for them, because they might be at a bad angle and not able to see your lips.  As to music, what does your Fiancee generally prefer when she attends weddings?  If she gets these implants but has not been able to listen to music before, she may not understand/like it.  There are lots of great ideas for fun stuff to do at weddings besides music and dancing though.  I’ve seen weddings (online) with casino themes, garden party themes with croquet, badminton, etc., and one where the guests played board games, plus weddings with fancy cocktail receptions where everyone just mingles, so don’t limit yourself to dancing if it’s not right for you!

Sorry I couldn’t be more help.  Good luck!

Oh i think it would be crazy sweet if you signed AND said them. I hope her surgery goes well; i’ve heard VERY good things about cochlear ear implants.

And, if she is doing really great with her hearing therapy and the like by thenm, you could just say them out loud. Then, if you want to say something special and privately to her, you could sign her something sweet. I’m guessing her parents and some family woudl get it, but it woudl be kind of a private vow between the two of you.
