The only thing you *have* to have is what is legally required by your state!

That being said -there was another bride who mentioned she is glad she didn’t do the Princess Bride part during her ceremony, as her officiant would not have done it justice. I’ll see if I can find it…

The most important part when we were writing our vows was that all of it meant something to us.  For example, my Fiance wrote something really romantic like “I promise to find something new to love about you everday.”  I cut that out – I told him I want ever part of the ceremony to be something we believe in and we can do. I cannot promise to find something new to find to love about you every day, but I can promise to love you ever day! So we changed it to that.

Funny enough, I think we looked at the same ceremony that you did with regards to the rings and metal and rock. We ended up cutting it once we started reading the vows aloud, as it just seemed like filler.

Our ceremony was short and to the point. We mentioned Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. People remarked how much they liked it and it reflected us! Let me know if you are interested in seeing it – I can PM you.

I love how you included the kids! the ceremony is sweet, funny and I’m sure must reflect your personalities and quirkiness.. It’s amazing and actually made me tear up a bit, lol quite a feat considering I don’t even know you lol 🙂

Love it! I think it hinges heavily on the officiant reading the humorous introduction sections, If you think they can pull it off and be lighthearted without trying too hard then go for it! Personally I think the you may now update your facebook statuses takes away from the sentimentality of the priori exchange, but if you are both really involved on Facebook then your guests will laugh.

I love love the part about creating a family and involving your children- that is just so sweet!! it’s that kind of love that really makes a wedding magical. there will not be a dry eye in the house by the time you kiss.

I like it! It seems very personal without feeling too insidery or self-indulgent. The only thing I would suggest is to shorten the Princess Bride quote. People will get it right away, I think you can cut it after “mawwage is what brings us together today.”
