    We wrote our whole ceremony. I can’t get to it right now (I am on my phone), but we used the hand ceremony. One of the Blogger Bee has it written out. Everytime I read it I cry like a baby.

    We wrote our entire ceremony as well. Wouldn’t have it any other way!

    We will not be writing our own vows but we will say something to each other before the vows. I want to say what he means to me and how much I love him and I want to acknowledge it out loud in front of our family and friends. We will then have traditional vows.

    We wrote our entire ceremony, like @tksjewelry: we are using the hands ceremony (as a reading for during our hand fasting rather than the pagan bindings or ‘promises’).

    We also wrote the ring exhange & vows (both of our vows are different), as well as customizing the solemnizers and declarations. It is about a page and a half long, so I am not going to post it here though.

    What’s the “hands” ceremony?

    We’re not; we’re sticking with traditional vows. But I love and admire couples who write their own!

    I love when people write their own vows.  However, for our ceremony, I actually think it’s way too personal to stand up and recite such private thoughts.  I can’t explain why since I know the point of everything is to stand up in front of all of your friends and family to declare your love and devotion to this one person.  Instead, I plan on writing out everything in the card that I’m going to give him the day of our wedding.

    Our vows will be the same, but we’re customizing them. I’m writing the whole ceremony too…what did I get myself into??

    I am going to end up writing our whole ceremony I think. It is really hard for me to start on anything now because I have to get a marriage comissioner and discuss with them what they are willing to do.
