Vows

I feel like my vows don't flow right or something needs to be added or taken out :/

We made it. After 2 rescheduled weddings. It may not have been how we planned, but the important thing is that we are finally getting married.

While I was writing my vows I was thinking back on what life was like before kids. Pre-kids, we’d go out to leisurely dinners, have unplanned nights out with our friends, spend money on ourselves and we were more spontaneous. We only had us to think about. Post-kids, we love a night of Netflix or PlayStation on the couch, we now have to make plans and we have routine. Life has changed and sometimes it’s not easy, but I love the life we have made together.

Having a baby changed us both, but it just makes me love you even more. It’s hard to be patient and show respect when we haven’t had a full night’s sleep in 2 years, especially when you are really good at the crying chicken game, aka pretend you are a sleep when baby is crying so I have to get up instead.

We have seen each other at our worst, but we are lucky enough to have each other at our best. You are my person and I wouldn’t choose anyone else to ride this roller coaster of a life with.

I choose you to be my husband, my co-parent, fellow tantrum tamer and love of my life.

    Personally, personally. Again just my personal opinion. I would definitely take out the “him pretending to sleep” info. And again, personally, not trying to offend you, but “it’s hard to be patient and show respect when you haven’t had a full nights sleep”. It just sounds like you’re miserable. Obviously I know this is not the case, as I’m sure you wouldn’t be getting married if you were actually miserable. But to an outsider looking in, that might be what it sounds like.


    Maybe instead of so much of the negative tone, you could focus more on the positives and how things are new and challenging but exciting kind of deal. Again just a suggestion

    I agree with this. I know it probably isn’t your intent to sound negative, rather just you expressing your life journey together. However, as a guest I wouldn’t know exactly how to take this. I’d add in more positive language and stories, but again just a suggestion! No one can tell you how to profess your commitment and love to eachother though, so do what you think is best

    I also got a melancholy tone Smiley sad Kind of like a "Remember the good old days" vibe. It sounds like you are two very tired, devoted parents! Of course, it may come across differently reading it on the internet, so it might sound very different when you deliver it in person with emotion and coming from your heart. But I do agree with DJ - focus on the positives a little bit more Smiley heart

    First paragraph is great. Skip to "Having a baby changed us both, but it has just made me love you more...then skip to we have seen each other at our worst that paragraph is golden ...I would stop there if I was you. Add you are the love of my life after "you are my person" drop the last paragraph.
    You want to keep it short and sweet. That way you can memorize it without having to read it.
    I get where you are coming from, but you may lose your "audience " per say with too much information. Just my opinion, for what it's worth. Just speak from your heart, you've got thisSmiley smile Congratulations!
