Do you still get emotional when you hear the traditional promises of "in sickness and in health"? Or are you all-in on modernizing the old wedding vows and making them more personal to your relationship?

Do you want to keep or cancel the traditional wedding vows?

    I'm ok with keeping it.
    I also like the idea of just saying your own though to make it personal.

    Cancel. We’re doing traditional vows, but still putting a personalized spin on them.

    Keep! We thought about doing our own vows but decided to keep it traditional.

    Keep/cancel. We want to keep them traditional but will probably have a few little personalized things in them. But not doing our own vows.

    Cancel. I don’t like the idea of generic vows because there’s no such think as a generic relationship. We will probably write our own together.

    Ugh, we aren't sure yet! I like the simplicity of just repeating after the officiant, but also like the personal touch of writing our own vows. I just don't want to be nervous in front of everyone! We're thinking about writing our vows separate from the whole ceremony and reading them to each other that night.

    Keep! We are sticking to the traditional vows, but we will have a personal (to us) reading!

    Keep. My fiance preferred to do traditional vows, but we are also writing our own personal and private vows to give to each other before the ceremony

    Keep. Neither one of us wanted to write our own vows but we were able to personalize the ceremony/vows to us even though we kept them fairly traditional.

    Considering we are getting married in a Catholic Church and personalized vows isn't even an option, I guess it's keep for me lol

    Keep. We are already out of our comfort zone. Writing our own and sharing more of ourselves is too much for us.

    Cancel. We are both writers and we have been writing to each other since we met, and we actually wrote vows to each other the night we got engaged Smiley smile

    We are on the fence with this one. I want our own vows, FH wants to do traditional.
