it’s a great start!

a couple of thoughts:

“you gave yourself to me as a birthday gift” — i immediately thought of this sexually…not really a good thing for marriage vows

“for always being real and never changing” — people change. i would take out those 2 words.

I agree with Kitzy. Also another thing is just to remember that this is supposed to be something from the heart but it is suppose to feel natural. Im afraid with the way it is set up it might feel like a graduation speech or something. So if you think you can pull it off without reading to much from a note card or whatever and remember it word for word through your nervousness. Then I say go for it. It was very sweet and romantic.

“I promise to encourage your individuality, because that is what makes you unique and wonderful, I promise to nurture your dreams and ideas, because through them your soul shines,”

I recognize this from The Knot…only because I thought about using it myself.

Good suggestions from kitzy.

“I make a vow to stand by your side through the best and worst of times, and to give you the best of what I have from this day on. “

I love this.

@jazzcitla: It’s up to you. I doubt anyone will notice. I just felt the same way you did, like it was perfect for my Fiance, so I’m sure that’s the only reason it stuck in my mind so much.

I think you have a good start. Your intro reminded me of Wedding Crashers though (about wanting to be humorous). “They both like the color green… Like her eyes, and money. ” 🙂 Actually, I think your vows are good, and I don’t really think you need to add anything unless you feel like they are missing something that you want to convey to him.
