I’m Catholic and just got married a week ago and during the ceremony, I wasn’t nervous at all. I didn’t even cry. Well, I must have been more nervous than I thought because when my now husband and I were exchanging vows, I said, “I, (my husbands first and last name), take you, to be my husband, etc etc etc.” I was reading from the priest’s book and his name was not printed in there so I have no idea why I said his name instead of what should have been my own.
The worst part is that I didn’t even realize I did this until the ceremony was over and I had family cbeing up to me asking if I realized what I had said. I HAD NO IDEA AND WAS MORTIFIED!!! Now, it’s going to be on video forever that I didn’t even say the vow with the correct names.
Has this happened to anyone? Had anyone messed up their vows bad and didnt know it? I don’t know what to do and I feel so stupid for doing that and feel even worse that not even the priest corrected me!

Eeep! It’s cool though…like laugh about it later kind of thing?
I’m actually worried I’ll say someone elses name. I know a lot of people with names that start with K…including everyone single person in FI’s family (it’s their thing). Once when I was introducing him to a professor I called him the wrong name…so maybe that’s where the fear comes from.

Yep, when Darling Husband was putting my wedding band on my finger and was supposed to say, “With this ring, I thee wed,” instead he said, “With this ring, I re-wed.” *facepalm* He had no clue. No, he has not been married before nor we were already married or anything, despite what some of our guests may have thought, LOL. I don’t think many people besides me really noticed though.

Haha, I did something similar… we were repeating our vows after the officiant, and I thought the line said “I will trust you and respect you,” and THEN I would say it, but I was just supposed to repeat after “I will trust you,” so he said that, then I waited for the rest… and waited… and then someone in the audience started cracking up and was all “Haha, I wouldn’t trust him either!” and then EVERYONE in the audience cracked up. And then I started laughing hysterically cause that is REALLY not what I meant!
And then when it got to the rings, my husband tried to put the wedding ring on the other hand (right hand… that is the wrong hand), and I was all, “Hey man, that’s the wrong hand!” and then everyone cracked up again.
