NEED HELP! Declaration of Intent & Wedding Vows

I'm so confused.... The declaration of intent (when we say I do's) seems so similar to traditional wedding vows. Those of you who are doing traditional vows and not writing your own, how are you doing this? Are you saying similar things twice (once when you say I do and again while repeating after the officiant)?I'm so confused...

FI wants to write our own but I wouldn't hold it together to well...

I'm not familiar with the difference between the two, but then again, we wrote our own vows.


Basically, I'm useless, but BUMP for someone who knows more than I do!

They are different but similar at the same time when your officiant is marring you two she has to pronounce your "Declaration of Intent" to marry and then you say your vows followed with I Do
