@pixiefatale:  Bottom line I would suggest asking the priest if he is open to those sorts of additions. Probably not the vows but I woud say you can probably at LEAST work a first kiss in there. For Roman-rite ceremonies, there’s officially no first kiss, either, but most priests allow it. If it’s not explicitly disallowed some priests can be fairly flexible.

Also from what I understand it may kind of depend on how Latin-ized the local parish is. I know generally it’s encouraged for the various rites to nurture their own tradition and not absorb the Latin traditions. Back in the day the general attitude was opposite (they were always trying to make the Eastern rites behave more Roman). I would definitely ask.
