I wish I could avoid saying mine out loud!  My partner is very demonstrative and he doesn’t mind shouting from the rooftops about how he feels – which is very sweet but I just get really embarrassed about it all… plus I am crier.

@Stranger516:  hahaha it sucks eh!

I think I am just going to have to suck it up and keep reminding myself that really there is no better place (in terms of being surrounded by loving friends and family) for me to tell my partner how I feel about him and I am sure he will love hearing it.

wenot we are not saying personal vows either. There are a lot of people who don’t. My best friend that recently had her wedding didn’t either.

you could always just write some generic feel good vows for the ceremony and saying your personal ones to him when you are alone.

friends of mine said standard vows aloud but then both whispered private vows to each other. Keep in mind, though, that a wedding is precisely the public acknowledgment and declaration of your intent to marry and love for each other, so it makes perfect sense for your vows to be made aloud… It’s kind of the point of having a wedding. If the privacy is important to you, I’d consider elopement.

My Fiance doesn’t want to do personal vows. He has no problem telling me how he feels about me all the time, but he feels awkward saying it in front of everyone. Oh well =

Hah, I wouldn’t share anything personal with a crowd!  I told Darling Husband “You’re getting me up there in front of a bunch of people, don’t expect me to talk.”  I said “I do.” and that was it. 🙂  We picked out prewritten vows we liked and to officiant read them.

Nothing against those that do, it’s awesome if both are comfortable with it.
