Silly Vows

 


I read this just now on a post from my wedding officiants group...


 


I have a wedding coming up in which the couple tell me they like
humor and their family is into practical jokes. One fun way to
interject humor into a ceremony is with a set of funny vows that
follow the serious ones. Here's a couple of examples from my files:

Chad, do you further promise to always restock the toilet paper,
always get up in the middle of the night just to close Adrienne's
closet door so she sleeps better, and always overcook her meat even
when it doesn't need to be? [I do.]

Adrienne, do you further promise to always encourage Chad's muddy
activities, stop locking the door when you know he is five minutes
behind you, and to not flush the toilet when he is in the shower?
[I do.]
-----
Do you, Holly, hereto promise to listen to Jonny most of the time
instead of tuning him out, to pick up after yourself, to use Kleenex
instead of constantly sniffling, and to laugh at even Jonny's lame
jokes? [I do.]

Do you, Jonny, hereto promise to say thank you when Holly offers to
do nice things for you, to not play the air drums in her presence,
and to only draw diagrams when absolutely necessary when you are
trying to explain something to her? [I do.]

Does anyone else have examples of ways to incorporate humor into a
wedding ceremony?

hahaha! Those are funny! Fi and I were thinking of doing something like that, but we decided to stay traditional. :) He wanted to me to vow to do my best to not leave half full diet cokes all over the house. I'm pretty bad at that.  hahaa

hahah I know! I don't know what my problem is...but I'm really bad. There's been times where there is probably like 10 diet cokes all over the house. He's tried everything. Nothing works so he's just relized he has to accept me for it! hahaa
