Anybody know any? No, not readings, but vows. I kind of have a good idea of what I want to say, but I’m a HORRIBLE writer. I’ve googled and googled and googled, but I find pretty much the same thing. Does anyone have any they’d like to share?

mdcmod: I wrote my own…is this what you are planning on doing? Here are mine:
____, you have brought so much light and happiness into my life. I am overjoyed to take you as my husband. I promise to love you without reservation, to support you in everything you do, and to respect and cherish you always. I promise to be your faithful partner and confidant, and to stand by your side through life’s happy highs, as well as its inevitable lows. I will strive to be my best self for you, to understand your struggles, and to respect our differences. I promise you my loyalty, my honesty, and my faithfulness. I look forward to growing with you, growing old with you, and to sharing the rest of my life with you.

mdcmod: I sympathize, then…it’s really quite difficult! Just give yourself lots of time and the right words will come!

mdcmod: hey there – we put together our whole secular ceremony script. I wrote a post about it, because I know that reading other brides’ vows and ceremony texts really helped me when I was planning. We kept our vows fairly short and sweet.

We got married in California and when we got our marriage licence they gave us a sheet with suggestions for the ceremony, including the vows. We started from there and revised them to suit us.
