    I was surprised…because my groom decided to Rick Roll me. It was a “wow” moment, but definitely not the way I expected. I almost wish he’d been a little more sincere, but he’s a joker and it made me laugh so I guess it fit.

    Tagging in to see. I have read some written vows online and have been absolutley flawed. I cannot imagine how it would feel to have such sincere words spoken to you.

    My husband and I decided to write our own vows…I took MONTHS, his took DAYS, I kept ribbing him, they’d better be pretty good, cuz mine were, well, STELLAR! We decided to keep our vows a surprise for each other for the ceremony…

    I got to say mine first. Everyone got a little misty, they were perfect, just what I felt I wanted to say and could promise to.

    Mr. Man whips out this two page SCROLL, and by the end of the intro alone both our mothers were blubbering, and I was bawling…I swear I didn’t even hear part of them because the crowd was WAILING as he kept reading!!! He did a phenomenal job, all on his own, no input from anyone, “just him and God” is what he told me later. Even the pastor was blown over. throughout the evening, almost every woman present told me how lucky I am, and that they’d love to have heard those vows at their own weddings. 

    we have since framed our vows and put them at our bedsides. They are the first thing we see every morning, and last every night.

    @Sweetjennygirl:  

    Framing them and placing them by your bedsides is a fantastic idea! Do you each have your own, to remind you of what YOU promised, or each other’s, to remind you of what the OTHER promised?

    @Spyderlillie:  

    My DH and I spoke to each other before the pastor led us through traditional vows. I had written a two-page document describing the characteristics that I believe God had placed in my heart to desire in a husband and how my DH fulfilled them. He spoke extemporaneously and was quite humorous, making me — and our guests — laugh several times. In fact one of my favorite pictures from my wedding was shot awhile I was laughing during his comments!

     @justjade:  

    Ok, by popular demand 🙂 here they are. I admit I was crying again when I arranged them to post here. I will never forget the look on his face or the sound of his voice that day! THEY ARE LONG. I shortened and tweaked a little here and there for length…enjoy….

     

    “I testify today, without doubt, reservation, or lack of clarity, I am a man blessed, beyond measure. Well beyond anything he deserves. I am the Sleeper, who has awoken, and reality is better than any dream could have been. It has been a beautiful and wonderful first year together leading to this marriage, and the rest of my life is my wonder to behold, just as you are my perfect wife…”
     
    “My life has seen many wonderful, and many sad moments this last year. My personal touchstone of comfort, came, in the beginning, from the book of James. “Whenever you face trials of any kind, remember that the testing of your faith produces perserverence…”
    (he read the entire passage)
     
    Jenny, I love you more than my words can say or show. Long ago you were just a dream and a prayer to this Lost Wanderer. This day is the answer to the prayer and the beginning of a wonderful new life, together.
     
    I choose to love you with joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control, in our moment’s greatest joys and darkest despair.
     
    I surrender my very life to you, holding nothing back, so that you and I may always be one in thought, word, and deed.
     
    I marry you today in body and soul, with my eyes wide open. You have helped me let go of the past, and I embrace our future. Thank you for making me laugh, love, and LIVE again! Bless you, for taking my hand, as we begin a new and wonderful chapter not just in OUR lives, but also in our childrens lives.
     
    I offer myself to you as a partner in all of this life. I vow to love you and be loyal to you in sickness and in health. I commit myself to encourage you in good times and in bad. I will cherish and respect you, all of the days of our life together.
     
    (*My absolute favorite line here, I LOST IT….*) May our marriage be a gift to our families, friends, and to the world, just as your love is a gift to me.
     
    God has truly given us both another chance at happiness and fortune. I come today to give you my word, my love, and my hope for our future together. I PROMISE to bring you joy, to be at home with your spirit, and to learn to love you more each day, through all the days of our lives. My love for you is endless and eternal.
     
    James: “the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure. Then peace loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial, and sincere. Peacemakers, who sow peace, will reap a harvest of righteousness. If one of you should wander from the truth, and someone should bring that person back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from Death and cover over a multitude of sins”
     
    Jennifer, you have turned the entire world for This Sinner. You have saved my life, my soul, and my heart. You are my perfect miracle. You are, my SweetJennyGirl, and now, my wife, my Forever…
     
     (Cue the wailing and Kleenex flying…pastor was speechless…it was AWESOME!!!)

    In addition to the personalized vows, we also had the pastor lead us thru the traditional matter of fact vows, that most everyone recognizes and understands. We did both, for ourselves, and for our kids…so that everyone young and old could hear, and understand, just what this marriage means 🙂

    and, I am most fortunate, that, this man, who is clearly gifted with word, actually LIVES THIS every day, in every way. His vows are his life, above reproach. I AM THE LUCKIEST WOMAN ALIVE!!!! 🙂

    We didn’t personalize our Vows… we used the “standard” traditonal vows.

    What I did like was our Officiant spoke a few words about LOVE and the Commitment of Marriage before we said them.

    And the Officiant Service that we used (we Eloped to a Destination Wedding), also gave us a Printed Copy of our entire Ceremony… word for word.

    (Something I didn’t have from my first Wedding)

    I too am thinking of transcribing it somehow… be that in a fancy font on the computer… or by Calligraphy… and then framing it and hanging it in our home.

    I think “seeing” your Vows in the OPEN & OFTEN cannot be a bad thing for a Relationship.

    @Sweetjennygirl:  Wow! Amazing!

    It sounds as if you were extremely instrumental in your DH coming to know Christ as His Savior (or in his choosing to return to Him!)

    For those of us who follow Jesus, there is no greater gift that we, as humans, can give to another person than to help lead him or her to the Lord!
