I have to write my vows...I have ideas but still need some inspiration!
What are /were yours?
I found these at my weddingvows.com
Today, as I give myself to you my mind is clear and my commitmentis strong and without reservation. I take you to be my life's partner. I will never leave you nor forsake you; I will spend all my days at your side. We will share a lifetime of eternal, immeasurable love.
Really love this one
_______,As I stand here before you, my eyes looking so deeply into yours, I see all of the things I fell in love with.As I stand here before you, my heart beating so loudly in my ears, I find myself so lost for the right words to say.As I stand here before you, this ring in my hand, it makes me remember how complete you make my life.With every smile, every embrace, every tear you've ever wiped from my face.It makes me remember how blessed I really am, how I can't ever thank the Lord above enough, for allowing you into my life.It makes me remember every laugh we've ever shared, every hard time we made it through together, and every beautiful moment there is to come.________, I give you this ring, my heart, my soul. I give you the everything I am today as I stand before you.I promise to love you, protect you, be with you forever, and cherish every moment as if it were the last moment on earth._______, I love you.

Elocha there are SO many more to choose from good luck!
I'm under pressure cause I know that he'll do something so great I have to do great too!!
You will do wonderfully! When you do get yours done I would love to see them also remember when you are writing them to make it personal like is he funny serious or romantic do you guys laugh a lot and take romantic getaways together where you two met and how long you have been together the struggles youve gone through together and so much more!
thanks for the advice!
As soon as they are ready I'll send them to you ;)
Alright darlin! Good luck!! Cant wait to see them <3
Elo, I know you're feeling pressure to make your vows beautiful and special. However, your best bet is to go straight from your heart. As you sit down to write your vows, close your eyes and just think of what he's meant to you, what he's done for you, and what you want to do and be for him as you start your marriage. Write those things down, and use that. Remember, your vows are what you vow to do for him and what you will do in your marriage. Let your heart speak.
That being said, DH and I did go with traditional vows, but it's because when we saw them, it was what we wanted to express to each other and what we wanted to promise each other.
I don't have the whole thing yet but definitely some pieces like :
When I tried to find reasons why I want to spend my life with you there is a lot but the main reason is because I can't do without you
we choose a quote for the wedding " I don't know where I'm going but I walk better holding your hand" and for me it's not just a nice quote it's exactly how I feel : I know that wherever life leads us I know that if I'm with you ebverything will be fine
It's better normally cause I wrote it in french and it's difficult to translate exactly but you get the idea
We did our own for the most part, but we did incorporate a version of The Blessing of the Hands:
hese are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever. These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other. These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy. These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children. These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it. And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.
