A lot of the Bees have written their own vows- Mr. & Mrs. Cherry Pie even wrote their entire ceremony!

It is much esier than you thinK!!!  I have come up with an outline that my help you with your vows.  I have used it for years and many of the couples that I have had the privilage of officiating used it with great success.

  • How did you meet? 
  • First impression?
  • What was the attraction?
  • How was your first date?  How soon to the next?
  • What do you appriciate about each other?
  • Little things you adore about each other
  • How do you feel about the relationship?
  • What do you see in your future together?
  • What do you want to promise to each other?

Take your time and think about the feelings that go with each of these questions.  Take time to look…really look at the other person…notice the little things that make them so very dear to you.  And last, make sure your vows are the highlight of the ceremony…it would be a shame to look at your wedding pictures in years to come, but to be unable to remember one thing you vowed to each other.  It is not a play or performance…it is the base for your relationship for the rest of your days together.  Best of Luck!!!

How many vows do you all think there should be?  I feel like I could go on forever listing things I vow to  him … 2 seems too few and 10 seems like too many … is there a "good" number?

I wrote ours. We are both saying the same thing, but we wanted to say something more personal than the usual stuff.

We talked about writing ours, but Fiance is too afraid that he’ll be too emotional to get through them.  I think that no matter what you say it just needs to come from your heart.  Tell all of your friends and family why you’re so happy to be standing there with him.  Good Luck!
