Wedding Vows… or as some people call them “Wedding Vowels” which is technically in some sense correct because I find wedding vows are much more enjoyable and understandable when you use as many vowels as possible. 😂
So lets dispel some myths…and answer some questions that you might have.
❓How long can wedding vows be❓
🙋As long or as short as you like.
❓Can you read your wedding vows❓
🙋Sure can. You can read them off a piece of paper, an iPad, a little booklet (if you can be bothered). You can have them read to you by your celebrant or you can try and remember them (but let the celebrant have a copy anyway in case you get all the feels and forget what you wanted to say)
❓Who says wedding vows first❓
🙋Whoever wants to go first the most (normally the person most in fear of crying)
❓What are wedding vows supposed to say
🙋Whatever the hell you like. Its your wedding and these are YOU vows (remember we are not talking about the legal requirements of a wedding – we are talking about your vows)
❓What are good wedding vows❓
🙋No such thing as “good wedding vows” in a one fits all scenario. Wedding vows should suit your personality, your relationship and your wedding.
❓Are wedding vows legally binding❓
🙋Suuuure they are. (Again not talking about the legal requirements of a marriage ). And the wedding police 👮 will come and take you away if you promise to make your partner a coffee every morning and missed a day. – Im being sarcastic.
