I posted a vent a little bit ago about my parents’ reactions to my planned wedding vows so I figured I’d do a poll so I know I’m not alone in my decision to go with only saying “I do”.
In your vows, are you/did you recite them or did the officiate say them and you just said “I do” or “I will”?

I had to look it up! Haha! We have a declaration of intent where there is the “Do you stand here now to give yourselves to each other in marriage” and we both say I do. I guess that’s the part that you’re referring to. For the sickness, health actual vow part, we found one we wrote and altered it to suit us.
“From this day on, I choose you to be my wife/husband. To live with you and laugh with you to stand by your side and to sleep in your arms. To be the joy to your heart and peace to your soul. To bring out the best in you always and to be the most that I can for you. I will follow you anywhere, from the driest desert to the tallest mountain to the farthest city. I will love, honour, and cherish you in sickness and in health for all the days of my life.”
So I guess I voted for the wrong thing. 😉

I am not married yet. But when I do, I hope that we will recite our own vows. I just think it makes it a little bit more personal and intimate. Y’know? But there is def nothing wrong with just saying “I do”.

Either way gets the job done, ya know? That being said, I want to actually say the vows.
