I struggled with the vows too. I ended up realizing that the best vows to really capture ourselves as a couple and individually were funny vows.

We are NOT the “I love you sooo much babykins” mushy couple at all. We hold hands, cuddle, kiss, etc… but we’re not the types who express our love through words. I think “actions speak louder than words” fits our relationship much better.

Anyway, since we are both silly, I made the vows silly. Not like “OMG this is mocking a wedding” territory, but something that captured the fact that neither of us are silly people. The style wasn’t that far off from the vows in the OP lol.

I managed to work his love of soccer, my love of cooking, our cat, and a few other “totally us” things into them. It made the day MUCH less scary than if we had to recite some cheesy over the top romantic stuff to each other.

So I think what I am trying to say in a really long-winded way is that you may be struggling so much coming up with vows because you’re just not a person who expresses themselves through super mushy wording… so maybe try something else.
