Perfect. Not too long at all.

Gemma2 :  I think over all it is really lovely but two words that bug me (and feel free to ignore me!) are lover (it just makes me cringe) and guardian (it kind of makes me think of him looking after you because you aren’t capable) – but like I said, just my honest feeback, take it with a pinch of salt. The rest is lovely.

Gemma2 :  If you are happy that’s all that matters πŸ™‚

MsBeer :  I get what you are saying, but honestly I feel like lover is par for the course during a marriage ceremony, whether in the vows or during a reading. I’ve heard that word so much at weddings, I feel like I’m immune to it in that context. It’s prolly gonna happen, so buckle up! πŸ˜‰

Gemma2 :  I think your vows are lovely. Wouldn’t change a thing. Definitely not too long.

One tip I would give would be to try and memorize at least some of the vows. You don’t have to recite them from memory, but if you have them semi-memorized then you can be more in the moment during the ceremony with your fiance. I’ve been to several ceremonies where people are clearly reading off of the paper and not looking at their fiance at all. While that’s fine, it’s nice to have parts of the vows memorized so that you can look into your fiance’s eyes as you are saying parts of it and be more in the moment with him.

I have to agree about the word “lover.”  T.M.I. You could replace with “my love.”

Agree to nix guardian.  Maybe protector? Defender? Guardian means somebody legally responsible usually for minors or mentally disabled folk.
