I am learning something new about wedding planning every day and now that I’m almost done with it, I am wrapping things up but still don’t know anything about vows.
What is the difference between writing your own vows vs not writing your own vows?
Also, for those who wrote your own vows, do you have any advice?
I’m also including a poll with this question to see how many of you wrote / are writing your own vows.

Yes we wrote our own vows and pretty much the whole ceremony. Our celebrant helped a bunch

We did not write our own vows. However, we were able to bascially write our whole ceremony or got to pick out what was said… so everything was decided on by us.
Our officiant had a guideline of an order she liked, and we just had to pick verses, lines, sections, whatever to fill it in. I felt it was very personlized this way.

We are going a more non traditional route. We decided to customize our entire ceremony including our vows….however I am not the amazing inspirational writer I would like to be so I took to Google! I used lines from a bunch of different vow examples that I had seen to make one unique to us : )

We both wrote our own vows but we also want to say the traditional ones too.
