vows!

9 well technically 10 days till we say I do, (since I decided yesterday,) I've decided to write our own vows. Am I crazy? I feel like I will regret not personalizing the most important part of ceremony and day. I'm hoping you lovely ladies can post some examples or favorite quotes to inspire me. Or tell me the story of how you wrote yours and if you waited to the last minutes too! Help!

Wow your day is so close how exciting!!!! i think as long as you speak from your heart you will be ok. I love this website as it has tons of quotes http://quotegarden.com/  here are a few

When love is not madness, it is not love.  ~Pedro Calderon de la Barca

For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
~Rosemonde Gerard

Who, being loved, is poor?  ~Oscar Wilde

To find someone who will love you for no reason, and to shower that person with reasons, that is the ultimate happiness.  ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com

Love is being stupid together.  ~Paul Valery

You really shouldn't say "I love you" unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget. ~Author unknown, attributed to an 8-year-old named Jessica

[W]hen you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.  ~Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally

 So exciting, your day is so close!!

We agreed to write short vows. We just wrote a few promises to each other - mine vows were 12 lines, his were 8. We basically 'kept it real', there was no 'I promise to never argue' or 'I will never try to change you' (of course I will, I'd rather be taken out for a romantic meal than have him sitting watching sports every night!! Lol)

Just speak from your heart xx

 Yeah that's what will happen but I figured I'd ask the ladies for some help and stuff! No harm in asking right?

 Kitty, you MUST write your own vows!  I just replied to another post here, saying I have been involved in over 500 weddings already (party, singer, musician); and the ones that I still rememeber are the ones where people shared their own vows.  Even if you falter, cry -- drop them for Pete's sake! -- those are the things that make your wedding YOUR wedding and not someone else's.  

My best friend recently got married, and in exchanging their own vows, they gave each other a small token (which neither of them had revealed until the moment) and built their vows around that meaningful object (e.g., "I'm giving you this tube of bubbles to remind you that I will always be here to help you see things clearly, to life your spirits, to bring joy if life gets you down, etc.").

Of course, he wore lime green shoes and bow tie, and she wore the feet to a gorilla costume down the aisle...

Big Congratulations.  Enjoy every second!

Tyler

 Wait! Your day is seriously that close?!?!

We had a traditional catholic mass, so vow writing wasn't an option for us. Just speak from your heart and it'll be perfect!

 Yes! 3 days and I'm so behind. I've just been gifted an extra day off though because I hurt myself at work. I'm ok but I'll be black and blue. No biggie. Just won't photograph that hand. Lol!

You aren't crazy! You can totally do it!

If you are really worried and just don't want that much on your plate though - you could work with the officiant to sprinkle in some personal bits so you won't have as much to do. We basically told her what we wanted and she created the ceremony, so all we had to do was repeat after her :)

 

BUT we put some really personal things in there like references to how we met, our dog, and how all that reflects on our life going forward. And we did a rose ceremony that was very simple - while my aunt sang a solo, we have roses to each our mom's and grandma's, that way we could take a moment to cry, hug and really let it sink in!

 

I'm so excited for you, nearly there now!!!
