So after watching a LOT of wedding videos I have decided I really want us to write our own vows. It’s so much more personal and sweet. Though I’m not sure I’ll be able to get through them at the ceremony. I cry just thinking about them… My fiance is scared he’s going to sound stupid though. For those of you who wrote your own vows…did you share them with your groom before the wedding day or leave it as a surprise?

It was a surprise. I actually wrote mine the night before the wedding! If your fiance speaks from his heart there is no way he’ll sound stupid.

I write for a living, so I’d really like to see my FI’s before he reads them to me. He has refused though. He says they are his vows and he will write them how he wants to, lol. It will be a surprise on the day of (though he’s very sweet and romantic and writes me love letters almost daily – so I have a good sense of what he will say).
Your Fiance will not sound stupid – it’s coming from his heart and is truly meaningful as opposed to just reading words someone else said. My guess is he’s just nervous to speak in public but that will fade. All he needs to do is look at you 🙂 It’s like when people say they got you a *thoughtful* card…all they did was pick it, how much thought goes into that? I always write my own so it’s true to the nature of the relationship and not just, yeah, whatever they said.
We plan to frame our vows with our wedding photos somehow…I leave the creative stuff to him and I’m sure it will look great 🙂

We wrote our vows together and practiced them with each other so we’d have them memorized for our wedding day. It worked out perfectly. 🙂

Thanks guys! I know he won’t sound stupid at all! I know it’ll be perfect but he’s really nervous about it. I think he’s remembering getting nervous in high school when he had to do any public speaking…he would get goofy and he doesn’t want to look like a nervous kid on his wedding day. I want to share them before so that hopefully I won’t cry so much! Now I just have to convince him…
