    We had a bridal party, so a BM and the best man held them, but a few ideas:

    -Have them already at the front with the officiant/at the alter waiting for you

    – If your father is escorting you, have them in his pocket and he can give them to you at the end

    – Have the officiant hold on to both sets of vows until it’s time to say them

    @futurefishy:  I gave mine to my groom to hold for me.  I printed our vows and put them into little cards, along with a tissue (just in case).

    Could you give it to your officiant before hand and he could hand it to you when it comes time to read the vows? Otherwise you could give them to your FI to put in his pocket.

    I made ‘Vow Cards’, and had the officiant hold them for us.

    I was MOH for a close friend. She gave me hers to hold on small note cards, which I managed to discreetly carry with my bouquet. Then we she went to hand me her bridal bouquet to hold during the ceremony, I slipped her the paper with her vows on it. Very smooth! LOL. Honestly though, no one noticed us doing that when asked afterwards.

    @futurefishy:  do you REALLY think he’d read it if he knows its supposed to be a secret?!? I am horrible with nosiness / snooping in general (not untrusting, just soooo curious about things) – but even I would never do that. But yeah, the officiant is a good idea.

    @futurefishy:  I actually put the cards into sealed envelopes, but that was more for fun.  Our officiant didn’t have any pockets (she sore a dress), otherwise I probably would’ve given them to her.

    @futurefishy:  Thanks. :] I’m just sad the photographer didn’t get pictures of us holding them while saying our vows (on my ‘must have’ list of pictures, UGH).
