Sorry for the late reply, all. We were on our honeymoon with no internet access.
weddingmaven : One of our friends did video the ceremony so I do like this idea.
k8goeslz : We actually discussed having the vows printed for our bedroom while we were on our honeymoon. Thank you for this suggestion! They are very simple, but not the traditional ones — they were the same vows my parents made 40+ years ago so they were very special to us.
MrsMeowton : I’m sorry something similar happened to you!
LunaLake : It is. I will inbox you his name.
peridot456 : I actually did call and leave him a message — it has yet to be returned.
sunshinenumber5 : I really love the idea of the voiceover. We may do that!
loz24 : I don’t want to read them in front of other people — H just suggested having our friend do the “repeat after me” part. I don’t want a whole big to-do, just the chance to say them correctly and “formally”.
elderbee : Yeah, not ours at all! They weren’t traditional nor incredibly personal like in your example. But they were the vows my parents wrote for each other and were important to us. Since I love them so much, I’ll share them here…at least some people will get to see them correctly!
Being what we are
I cannot promise you tomorrow,
For I am only promised today.
So let this be my commitment:
I will love you now,
In all the ways I can love,
And we will both have to
Have faith in tomorrow.
But in case tomorrow is not yours or mine
Let me grow from you today,
For we are,
And I love you.
