So I’m gonna type it out how I think I’d say it…so ignore all the really ill-placed commas etc. Suggestions welcome.
So many years ago, when we were 16,
I looked back and saw you sitting across the room.
In that moment I knew that I wanted to know you
to be near you.
It’s a moment I cherish because it was just me and you in a room full of
people and it was the start of the most important journey of my life.
Today, I promise to love you,
every single day from now until eternity.
I promise to love you with my eyes wide open,
To be grateful for all of our blessings
and to never leave your side throughout this journey.
I promise you all that I have to give and all that I am to be.

@icetea: That last line “I promise you all that I have to give and all that I am to be.”
…something bugs me about it. I know the vows will go by in a flash, but the “all I am to be” part. What do you mean by it exactly? Images of you changing into something bad popped into my head when I read it.
It’s hard to articulate, but I guess at that precise moment he loves you for you, the way you are… so the “all I am to be” part makes me think hmmm so she’s going to change? Why bring it up? There’s room for improvement? Etc.
Other than that, I think they’re short and sweet. I could never be so sappy haha I give you props for that. I’d be soo embarrassed to pour my heart out in front of people. It’s really sweet, though.

@canarydiamond: I feel yah…I guess I do plan on changing…always. And that’s part of the promise…to keep being the best I can be. Haha and yeah I guess they’re sappy…but I didn’t think they were nearly as sappy as most vows I’ve seen. What were your vows…did you just do the I do stuff?

@icetea: Not married yet but we plan on doing the standard ones lol. Not too original but I really just want to get it over with fast. Not typical bride, I know! I don’t like getting emotional in front of people.
