    @MistySoda:  we’re doing both. we’re reciting vows, saying i do, then doing the exchange of rings.

    We’re reciting the Jewish wedding vows in Hebrew to each oher, but we’re not saying “I do”.

    @TwoStatesBride:  are you doing traditional vows or writing your own? FI and I don’t want to write our own vows (too much pressure!), but I really like the idea of saying vows and saying “I do.” I’m not really sure how that would work without seeming too repetitive. I’d love to see an example of repeating traditional vows and saying “I do,” if anyone has one!

    The officiant is reading the traditional vows to which we are responding “I do” but then we are also reading our own personal vows to each other before exchanging rings.

    @pineapplez17:  we’re ‘writing our own’, but they’re traditional vows. i have pet peeves about brides and grooms saying “i choose you” (POKEMON!) and some other cheesy things, so i wrote our actual vows to keep some of those things out.

    PM me and i’ll copy/paste that part of our vows to you. 🙂

    We will be saying, “I will”, our vows AND “I do”.

    First, the officant will ask for “mutual consent”.. if we will love, honour, cherish one another, to which we reply “I will”.  We then recite the traditional “for better or for wose” vows, followed by a ring ceremony where the officiant asks each of us if we give/receive this ring confirming we will perform these vows to which we each respond “I do”.
