Im terrified im going to mess up while saying my vows! I tend to talk fast and sometimes my brain goes faster than my mouth can and I end up falling all over my own words. I get made fun of by FI sometimes because Ill just stutter or struggle to get things out, I don’t have an actual speech problem, I just get ahead of myself sometimes and have to take a moment and regroup lol.
So bees? did you mess up your vows? if so how? im curious….

@Kandiss16: thats gonne be me! that or ill say a word wrong or something I just know it : And im a terrible giggler. So once it happens I will just go into a fit of nervous laughter. FI says my giggling is contagious because when a fit happens he starts laughing too since its just so funny that im laughing so hard at basically nothing. So my nightmare is that we are both up there like two laughing fools!

I haven’t had my wedding yet, but when my brother got married he messed up. At the rehearsal there was one line that was kind of long and when it was his turn to repeat it he literally said “wait, what?”. Haha. So he asked the pastor if he could break up that line into 2 seperate ones, the pastor said sure. Well he forgot to break it up for the wedding and the same exact thing happened. Everyone giggled and it was totally fine.
I tend to get all tongue tied when I’m really nervous or had even a drop of alcohol. Well I plan to have a mimosa or 2 that morning and I’ll probably be so nervous I pee myself (I hate attention) so I’m sure I’ll sound like a bumbling mess, but that’s ok 🙂

I most likely would which is why I want to do the “repeat after me” thing and keep them short, then well write more personal letters in private. That or I’m gonna be bawling!

@stardustintheeyes: practice, practice, practice.
be familiar with the words. it’s like giving any speech. remain calm, breathe, speak slowly and clearly.
it will sound slower to you than it does to your guests.

I didn’t, but Mr. LK did. We even did the “repeat after me” style vows. At one point the officiant said the line and Mr. LKresponded “Wait. What was that? Can you say that again?” To which our officiant (one of mr. Lk’s best friends) responded, “Well SHE wrote it!” I nearly died of laughter. I wrote a reverent, serious ceremony, and yet we still ended up being our laughing, imperfect selves. It was a priceless moment that I still tease him about. 🙂

I did, and it was everyone’s favorite part of the ceremony (incuding mine!). I was so happy and emotional that I started crying, and not the glistening tear type of crying, but the puffy eyes, tears streaming down my face, so obviously I couldn’t speak. The officiant had the mic up to my mouth and didn’t think to pull it away while I was sniffling, so all the guests heard a VERY loud sniffle, which made me giggle, which made the crying stop at least. I would count that as a pretty big mess up, haha.
I’m also pretty sure I said “wing” instead of “ring” which also had everybody laughing. Trust me, you’ll be too wrapped up in staring at your husband to care. This was something I was terrified about, but everything worked out fine. As PP pointed out, it helps to have the call and repeat style of vows, and it also helps to be able to laugh at yourself. Don’t stress about this part, you’ll be fine!

My aunt and uncle got married at the JOP and my mom, Grandpa and i were witnesses. Istead of forsaking all others, my uncle said for the sake of all others.

@lovekiss: oh man.. that’s gonna be me “wait what?… say it again? … no wait.. slower!” ugh! lol
@ajillity81: I failed speech class in high school and barely passed in college. That’s how bad at speaking in public I am! …and wouldn’t you know, I ended up with a job that requires me to do monthly seminar presentations : I feel ill everytime it’s seminar day.
Oh god… if I ugly face cry (which I tend to do fairly often for all kinds of reasons), I sometimes snort. I swear if I snort ill just say I do and that will be it. done. over. lol
