I have officiated countless wedding ceremonies of all possible types.
Some weddings have 400 guests and some have none but no matter how small or intimate a wedding, the couple’s wedding vows are the words that seal their marriage. I can provide a variety of suggest wedding ceremonies and vows but I think it is nice for a bride and groom to personalize their wedding vows.
One way to present personalized wedding vows is for both the bride and the groom to write their own wedding vows or just some simple thoughts to their mate which they can recite after their “I do” vows and before their exchange of rings. They may also wish to recite a poem, song lyrics or some other passage that has personal meaning to the couple and their relationship. Whether a ceremony is two minutes or thirty minutes what is most important is that the words of the ceremony express exactly what the couple intend.
