    I would like to write our own vows, but FI really does not.  I think I am going to write what I would say and give it to him after the wedding.

    We added our personal vows after the officiant had us say the traditional vows… It was my favorite part of our wedding, still gives me goosebumps to remember that moment. I say go for it!

    My fiance’s #2 wedding request (#1 was chocolate fountain) was that we write our own vows.  I wrote mine during a moment of clarity while washing dishes.  I’m looking forward to hearing his!

    When I started searching for DIY projects, etc. FI said the biggest DIY project he wanted us to undertake was making our own vows.

    Sounds good to me – cheapest DIY project I’m contemplating so far.

    We’re doing a combination of the two.

    we were originally going to do the traditional vows, but we went to a wedding last year with written vows, and both of us were really touched.

    i fell in love with the idea afterward, FI loved watching them do it, but is nervous as he says i am “more eloquent with my verbiage”

    but he’s agreed to write our own, as he sees that for us there’s more meaning behind it. 🙂

    i’ve written mine already and our wedding’s not til sept! 😛

    i might re-write them.

    we’ll see.

    Originally we planned to write our own vows but I chickened out!  Its such a personal, intensely emotional thing.  I can’t do that in front of all those people, I’ll never make it through the vows anyway, I will be a quivering lipped, wet faced mess!  Lol.  So we are having the traditional vows, but really, they’re far from traditional.  I really like the wording that our officiant has shown us, its contemporary and heartfelt, but all we have to say is I Do.  I can manage that!

    We are going to pick the ones that we want. Not necessarily writing them, though.

    We’re doing traditional vows because we’re getting married in a church. I don’t know if I could write my own though. I have serious stage fright and sharing something I’ve written with all my guests would be tough for me!!

    I really want to write my own vows, but I am afraid it will make me cry my eyes out!  I am thinking about writing them, but arranging it so that I don’t actually have to say too much…
