I’m not sure i’ve seen any vows like that I can point you toward. If you are unsuccessful in that search, though, there are TONS of readings with those sentiments in mind. If you are interested, I can send you some.

wow, I have never heard of this idea before but I like it a LOT! I am sure it would be easy enough to write your own like that together.

I LOVE this idea! Where were you in my life one year ago when I was still planning? Haha just kidding! 😀  This is really fantastic, though.

I saw something like this (or at least I think it’s what you’re talking about) in a magazine and we fell in love with the idea! We wrote them together, and we also threw in a couple of lighthearted inside jokes that were meaningful to us. Everyone complimented us on our vows afterward. 

Here they are:

   Both: I promise…

Him: To be honest

Me: To be trusting

Him: To take things seriously

Me: To see the lighter side of things

Him: To support you in whatever you choose to do

Me: To support you in whatever you choose to do

Him: To not eat the last bite of your sandwich

Me: To unwrap your gum when you are driving or wearing mittens

Him: To cherish you

Me: To love you

Him: To work on things

Me: To make things work

Him: To be the big spoon

Me: To be the little spoon

   Both: I take you…

Me: To be my husband

Him: To be my wife

Me: In sickness and in health

Him: For better or for worse

Me: Until death do us part

Him: And if either one of us breaks these promises

Me: I promise to forgive, and move on with our lives

   Both: Together

@Holocene:  Those are great! Did you read/memorize them or have the celebrant prompt you?

We did this for our ceremony, but with our own spin.  Our officiant called them ping pong vows.

 

So I would say something like “I promise to love you and only you–and to only drool a little when Matt Bomer is on TV”

And he would say “I promise to love you and only you–no matter how many blondes walk by”

 

So basically we’d be talking about the same thing but in a different way.

@AlwaysSunny:  We memorized them but had index cards just in case! We wanted as little commentary as possible from the officiant, so all he said was “now they will exchange vows” or something along those lines, and we took it from there. We did send the vows to him in advance so he could make sure that we had everything covered.

@chuyskywalker:  YES!  Some friens of ours did this, but they made it up themselves.  While watching, we had no idea they were doing this and it came off so incredibly moving.

She spoke some, then he did, then they did every other line finishing their sentences and ending on the same phrase I DO.

Sunflower Skies that is awesome.
