Would LOVE to read some of your personalized wedding vows... :] Please DO share.
Edit: Sorry for the HTML showing....
I wrote our ceremony so this is copied and pasted from the Word doc :) (well, copied and pasted sections from the internet is what I mean by wrote, haha)
Joshua, do you take Halsey, to be your wife? Do you promise love to her, respect her and care for her, under all conditions and circumstances of life to be a faithful husband to her for the rest of your lives together? [I do]
Please repeat after me: Halsey, I love you. You are my best friend. Today I give myself to you in marriage. I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle. I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems difficult. I promise to cherish you and to always hold you in highest regard. I promise to support you and to be there for you, through the good times and the bad. These things I give to you today, and for all the days of our life.

This is part of the vows I helped our officiant write. We followed this with a few words she spoke about getting to know us a couple during the planning process, we then did the Blessing of the Hands and a rose ceremony where we gave roses to the mom's and grandma's while the soloist sang.
ridegrl... we have the same vows :)
YAY! Haha! They're so perfect, aren't they? :) ....*side note* What the heck did people do about vows and ceremonies before the internet?!
hahaha omg who knows!!! our rev is actually quite savy (as I am sure others are) and gave us a whole book to chose whatever we want for every part of the ceremony. I am actually saying the same vows as you and your FI, and my FI is saying something different. Hehe then it looks like we wrote them ;)
BAHA! Clever ;)
Here is what our vows were:
I, Eric, take you, Rebecca, to be my wife. I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life.

We used the ones from our priest because I was so worried about being able to come up with something on my own and having to say it in front of our guests.
We are saying vows to one another before the pastor does the traditional vows. I don't know what he will say and he doesn't know mine but I will share with you.
Cale Nazay Young - My best friend, the owner of my heart and the lover of my soul. Never in a million years could I have ever dreamed, wished or prayed for anyone more suited for me. People always say I am so lucky to have you in my life, but I don’t believe in luck; I believe in blessings. You are my blessing that God saw fit to send me, my angel that walks this earth in human form. I vow to love you, care for you, honor you, respect you, cherish you, be loyal to you, submit to you and stand by your side through whatever this life throws our way. With GOD guiding our hands, our footsteps and our hearts as he has throughout our journey thus far, we are in for an adventure of a lifetime. Cale you are my soul mate. My soul loved you before I met you, my soul discovers a new reason to love you daily and my soul will love you into our next life. Our love is timeless and I love you with every fiber in my being.
Hubby and I are so non traditional! We are both silly and love to laugh and have fun. So We decided to write our own. I cant find what he did with his but here are mine... and none of that mushy stuff either (lol)
Who would have thought that the night i met you at Jen's Bday party would things for the both of us forever. Since that night we became fast friends, hanging out with each other on the weekends. exchanging stories of our past relationships, while drinking the infamous "hunch punch" and eating rotel and chips! (lol) But then something happened.... I wanted to be more than just your friend. I decided I wanted to be your lover and confidant in the end. I understood the hesitation on your part.You knew that I was a mother and a player from the start! (lol) But you pushed all apprehension aside real quick and said " I want you to be my ride or die chick". I knew without a doubt you would complete our world, and be an excellent father to the ones we call "the boy and the girl" You stood right beside me holding my hand, when the Lord decided to call my mom to the promised land. you know my saying "I may not always be right, but i'm never wrong". You just shake your head and laugh while sing a project pat song(lol) Kenneth and Kennedi were kinda of shy around you at first. You were firm with them yet still spoiling them only making them worse! I'll Love you forever for the rest of my life, I told you that if I got you some Dallas Cowboys tickets I was gonna be your wife! Know this if you dont know anything else, I love you and i'm selfish and want you all to myself!
i only cried when i read the part about my mom..
he's crying after hearing my vows!
We wrote ours to go together but to still reflect our own personalities. :) I'm still in love with these:
