    Are any of you ladies writing your own vows to go alongside the traditional ones?

    Just realised I've got 17 days to sort out my vows that are personal to us, funny in places and also tender and loving.

    If anyone has any ideas on the tender and loving and any funny (suitable) vows, i'd be very grateful. Once I get started I usually go great guns, but just can't start....AAAARRRGGH!!!!!

    We weren't going to but once all the info came after we gave notice we decided we wanted a bit more than just the standard - think we are going to look on line for inspiration to start us off and then take it from there!

    That's exactly how we felt when we saw the standard vows. Plus my mum has decided that it's be really, really nice to do (mum's way of making us do it, bless her)!
    I'm thinking the internet for a nudge in the right direction too. If you come across any really good and/or helpful sites can you let me know and i'll do the same for you. Thanks Amy!
    Love Juxx

    I'm hoping it'll be alright but will probably take a little card with it written on just in case as I know i'll get all nervous and teary and forget everything!

    I didn't know where to start but I put down some words and sentences that I wanted then had an idea about putting in some lyrics from one of Spences' favourite songs, then a bit of fun, then jiggled them all around til I was happy with the result. It only took me half an hour - don't know if that's a good thing or not, i'll keep looking back at it over the next couple of days and run it past my friend and see how I feel about it then!
    Good Luck x

    Glad you have it sorted hun! Well done you. Think the fact it only took half an hour is a good thing. Means you knoew what you wanted to say & it just came right out. You didn't have to dig deep to see what you feel. if that makes sense? xxx

    Thanks sweetie, that's how I feel. I do keep looking back at it and am still happy with it. My friends coming over tonight now instead so will run it past her too. Didn't really want to show anyone but think it'll be for the best, just in case!!! :)

    Ok, definitely sticking with my vows and have e-mailed them to the registry office!
    I'm really pleased with them and my friend, who knows Spence very well, thinks they are perfect for us. The song that i've incorporated is Pigs On The Wing (parts 1&2) by Pink Floyd and i've added the song to the ceremony music. x
