So I’ve been working on my vows, and I’m having all these problems with one part because I can’t seem to rewrite it to not be a perfect setup for a “That’s what SHE said!” Talking about letting Fiance into my heart and how now my heart has grown to make room for all kinds of other love, and … THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!
There’s just no way around it! Either my heart is growing, or I’m letting all kinds of people in, but he was the first, or once he was in it kept getting bigger … I just can’t do it! And the harder I try, the harder I laugh because I just keep picturing Fi being the one to yell “that’s what SHE said!” halfway through my vows at our wedding. If not him, then ME. Since I figure at least half the guests are at the same level of maturity as me, I’m sure I won’t be the only one thinking it. Several cousins may have to physically clamp their hands over their mouths to stop themselves.
Oh man … I hope this means I’m at the point in wedding planning where everything just becomes funny. Because hell, why not laugh?
THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID!
Anyone else getting sillier as the wedding day approaches? 🙂

Haha not there yet but if we write our own vows I will have to very closely monitor anything that could be turned into something funny.

Reminds me of one couple’s wedding…the reader was supposed to say small Parts, but he said small Farts. We were all shaking to keep from busting out laughing… someone whispered “there are no small farts in THAT household,” as this couple is notorious for busting wind.

HAHA this is an awesome thread! I’m glad I read it – this is mistake I would probably make and then realize myself saying my vows and bust out laughing!

@kate02121: haha like they always say, intentional joke = good; unintentional joke = BAD!!! I mean here I am writing this really emotional and beautiful story about how after meeting Fi, my whole outlook changed so much that I made deep and lasting friendships and reconnected with my family … and as I’m writing I’m like “oh shit, this is such a setup even I’LL have trouble resisting!” Hopefully I can find some sort of workaround!!!

@rebwana: hahahahahaha small farts!!!
This also reminds me of the things I’m keeping in my “file” in the back of my head for if I start getting TOO teary and want to push it back down a little. I made the mistake of telling a friend about this, and we started brainstorming and somehow, some way, ended up with the phrase “two-headed poop fart.” Yeah, I really hope that doesn’t pop into my head during the ceremony. I will 100% guaranteed start laughing. Nothing like a bride with a case of the giggles at the altar!

Wedding this past summer- Sermon was about having a Christ centered marriage- cool beans…Then the pastor made motions. Points to husband- “You” Points to wife- “You” and points in the middle “and Christ” Then we fine mature people whisper “Bride and Groom like threesomes??”

Ahaha that is awesome! Maybe your fiance can whisper TWSS to you at that part. 😉

@Juliepants: We already do this thing where whenever someone says “repeat after me” we yell “After me!” It’s a trained reflex.
This could go poorly when it comes time to do the rings … I wonder if I should warn the officiant to use different words
