Tarheelgurl:  Today Groom and Bride will not only gain each other as they create a new family together, but they will GAIN (?)  new siblings and parents as well.<br /><br /><br />

dont personally like the “five years of let-down-your-guards” and the “Bride, you made the decision to leave the familiarity of your home state and country, to pursue that love even further”. too much drama. I left my home to study abroad, met my husband, got married and we’re moving country again. Get on with it! It was your decision. Unless you’re not very confident about it… <br />

The rest is really nice!

when me and my husband were choosing the ceremony scripts, there were some (official from the registry!) that were like: if this works it works, if it doesn’t work… no brilliant thing for say at a wedding<br />

I like it overall!  Love the traditional handfasting- so neat. 

I wanted to suggest the following option for the part you mentioned trying to reword: “Today, Groom and Bride will not only join together to create a new family, they will gain the love of new siblings and parents from each other’s families as well.” Maybe?  It still acknowledges your new beginnings and includes the families (which I think is the goal there).

Also, just my two cents on this… I can see what ccc_red meant about the move sounding dramatic.  I think your statement about it being a big step means it should be in your vows.  It just sounds (sorry, don’t want to be harsh) a little one-sided since we don’t know the whole story.  Maybe if you changed the part about leaving your home state and country to something like, “After that friendship turned to love, you both decided to build that relationship further.  Bride left the familiarity of her home state and country to be closer to Groom.  Groom ——fill in the blank—— to —verb— Bride.  This move made your love grow stronger. For the past four years…”  His part could be that he made visits to your home often to support you or that he opened his home to make you feel secure, whatever would fit.

Tarheelgurl:  That’s really cute- I think it sounds really inclusive that way!  And true from what you’ve said about him. 🙂  Glad you like the other wording.

Just out of curiosity- what song is the “let-down-your-guard” line from?  I just helped my friend incorporate some Blink 182 lines into her wedding invitations, so I love the musical reference idea!

wvlefty:  Blink 182 is my alltime favorite band! I would LOVE to know how you incorporated their lyrics with your friend’s invites?!!
