View Full Version : Vows

I have spent about 3 hours thinking and writing up our vows from scratch!!!!!
I was so brain dead, I think it sounds a little weird hahaha
Did anyone use the celebrant/priest (whomever you used)...their standard vows or were you able to make it up yourselves? did they give you a list of what you could use??

We had a couple of options for our wedding (Catholic Church). We used the traditional vows, but there were different ways to do traditional vows. There was a modernized version and the "traditional" version. You could answer them as a question by saying "I do" after the priest reads off the vows. You could also repeat the vows after the priest or read them from a book. We read them from a book because DH was afraid that he would mess up :)

Our celebrant sent us lots of different vows that we could pick from OR we could write our own - we went with one that he sent just changed a couple of things. Most will have more then one option - just check with them before you book with them.
If you get stuck I would be happy to send you the ones he sent to us.

I asked or a copy of his generic wedding script ahead of time. I thought the vows were fine, so we stuck with what he had. I wanted to make sure they weren't the old 'love honor and obey' version! But there was no way I wanted to write my own! Our whole ceremony was done in about 10 minutes - the shorter the better for us!
I did do some searching to find a unity candle ceremony to add into his script.
