I know this is a very stupid question I am feeling rather stupid because me and FH think it works differently. So ladies please help me clear this up. Does the rev. read the vows and you repeat after him or is that for the rings?

That is something that you discuss with your Rev. Our church gives us the option to learn the vows by heart and recite them from memory, have the priest say the vows first and we repeat them, or he asks them as a question and we say “I do”.

Often the officiant reads the vows and the exchange of rings and the bride and groom take turns repeating after him/her.
Some couples choose to memorize or read their own vows.

@AprilJo2011: Oh thank you so much! I will ask him for sure. I know so far he has said we can do everything however we want. I am thinking we will do the repeat after me just because I am affraid I might forget something.
