Are you and your FI writing personalized vows to one another?
I don’t want to but my mom thinks we should I haven’t talk to my FI about it yet. I just wanted to say the standard stuff…
What are you guys doing?

No. We both decided it wasn’t necessary. The traditional, Christian church vows (complete with obey for me) are just fine.

No, I wish we could have, but I could barley get through the traditional ones without ugly crying! lol

No, I’m very shy, and he’s somewhat shy [he’s not shy about most things, but about intimacy, he is, that’s usually only something me & his mother sees]. It would be almost impossible for either of us to get through it!
However, we are thinking about writing very personal letters to each other, and having them delivered while we get dressed.

Nope. So not our thing. We will be sticking to whatever the legal requirements tell us we need to say!

We did all the traditional ones, then we did our personal vows/promise to one another 🙂 it was about a minute or two for each of us. It was nice because that was the only part of the ceremony that was a surprise, because we kept what we wrote a secret from each other. That’s when everyone started crying! Haha

We actually said both. We liked the traditional ones but I also wanted to make my own promises to my husband. Everyone loved it and it meant a lot to both of us.

No. We are having the traditional Hindu vows because I like them.

Yes we are. My FI and I are not religious people so neither one of us wanted “God” or religious verses in our vows. I gave my FI the option of finding something non-traditional that we both liked, writing our vows together, or writing them seperately and he chose seperately. This shocked me because he is not the kind to share his feelings. I am excited to hear what he will say to me that day.

@dmk90716: That’s what I’d like to have! I can’t wait to see what FI thinks about it. We’re Christian and quite traditional when it comes to the convenant of marriage.

@TaurianDoll: We’re doing both the civil ceremony vows as well as doing our own but we’re writing them together. We thought about each of us writing our vows individually and saying them to each other the day of, but we were worried about one of us being too funny or one of us being too sentimental. Also, I’m a big crier so if I didn’t read what he said beforehand waterfalls would have nothing on what would be coming from my eyes!!!

We followed the traditional format and promises and stuff but changed up the wording a little bit. We wanted something that was like what our grandparents and parents said, but with a bit of a twist (:

Yes, we aren’t having any religion or tradition so will be writing our own vows. I’m a bit worried about it to be honest, just the thought makes me nervous!
