So I decided to write my own, well because I want to do something this go around. My question is to you how long will or did it take you to say your vows that you wrote.
It take me about 6 minutes saying them slowly because I’m having my MIL to interpret them via sign language.

    That's awesome! we're saying both traditional and our own I'm not sure how long they'll take for us to say. I've just started jotting down some thoughts recently for them

    That's totally understandable for having an interpreter. I haven't even finished mine so I can't quite put a time on it yet but I'm going to strive to keep it under 3 mins.

    I guess if I say them normally. I think they would be under 3 minutes.

    That's what I was figuring. I feel like that's a decent amount of time.

    Mine is about 2-3 min long.

    Mine is just shy of 200 words. I didn't know how long vows should be either, and a few wedding websites suggested they be around 150-200 words, which equals to about 2 minutes speaking (you want to speak slower when doing any sort of speech than regular conversation so people can process what you're saying).

    That amazing! Haha I haven't started mine yet but I dont know that I could think of that much to say. I just hope theirs are close to the same length so it doesn't sound weird for yours to be a lot longer than your fiance.

    IKR. I just have to be mindful of the time because the day isn't even here yet and I am already feeling pretty rushed! LOL. I literally feel like i am out of time to begin with. I wanted to cram so much into this 5 hour period. I am a little nervous about that

    I stated writing them when we decided two months ago we wanted to say our own vows. Take time to write them.

    Nice...I don’t think theirs some “rule” saying how long your vows have to be.

    If you have more to say than 200 words, it's you talking to your FH...so that's ok! I don't think a standard time matters, this a personal matter and is in my opinion, the climax or purpose of the wedding altogether. Without the vows, there wouldn't be a wedding. Feel free to spend as much time as you want.
