Tell us about your vows! Are you sticking to the traditional "in sickness and in health" wedding vows? Or choosing to go the modern route and write your own for your big day?

    Modern! We wrote our own vows and even wrote the ceremony script with our officiant, who is FH cousin.

    We're Jewish so they were traditional but not in the way you described above. Our "vows" (not exactly what they're called in Jewish ceremonies) were done in Hebrew.

    Hi queenbee! This sounds great! Your close family relationship with your officiant will make it super personal, too. Smiley heart

    Traditional. I've never been good at putting my thoughts into words and overthink everything, and while I wanted us to write our own, I'm glad we went with traditional

    Ours were pretty traditional. A few modern tweaks but we didn't write our own

    Both! I think I want the traditional and to say something special depending on if he is up to it.

    I think they are pretty traditional. We are too shy to read our own haha I'll save all my guests from the awkwardness of having to listen to us try to read our vows in front of all of those people.

    We will be doing the Traditional thing. However we are going to give each other our vows written down when we do the first look.
