So I'm getting married in 17 days (crap crap CRAAAAAP) and of course, this is the perfect time to sit down and maybe start to think about our vows. It's not really going to be the most conventional of ceremonies, as we're pretty much the embodiment of Dr. Seuss's saying about weirdness, but I'm not sure how far off the beaten path to go. The only thing I can think of is playing off of the "love, honor and cherish" bit in traditional vows, but beyond that... uh... help? It seems that most of the sites that'd touch on this are directed towards the brides to be, so that kind of throws a wrench in the works for me.

Here's the best idea I've seen (secularhumanism.tribe.net) so far for jumping-off points, even though we're not going full-on YAY ATHEISM for the ceremony. (It's just going to be non-religious.)

Man, maybe we need a wedding forum.

We had a friend of ours - who had absolutely ZERO ministering experience - get a 1 day license to conduct the ceremony (which you can do in CA, not so sure about CT). She was terrific. We wrote our own vows (about which I was EXTREMELY nervous, but it ended up being perfectly fine). My wife wrote hers out - I just went off the cuff. The whole ceremony lasted about 15-20 minutes. All in all, we just had fun with it - and it went fine.

That's kind of my response to nearly everything wedding related. Just have fun with it, and it'll be fine (the exceptions are food and DJ - you need to devote some energy to those things, because it can put a damper on things if the food is awful and the DJ is an asshole).

Anyway, I don't think you need to go too far off the beaten path to have something unconventional yet appropriate.

A couple I know had the "Mawwage is what bwings us togeva today" bit from the Princess Bride as their ceremony. The Justice of the Peace read the whole thing totally straight and it was a real riot to those of us in the know and still nice for the parents. Lots of fun!

We used conventional vows - worked better for the camera and video.

Throw in a Seinfeld bit: When I met (name of bride) I knew she was the one for me. So we went on a date, had a good time and yadda yadda yadda here we are getting married today.





Life is hilariously cruel.

Do whatever is most comfortable for you, you should find the audience, being your friends and family are probably quite adept to who you are.

We wrote our own, with the promises to love through sickness and health, etc but threw in our own extras... I promised to love through Walmart and fashion bug, she promised to love through late night poker and WWE Raw. I think because it had been so straight until that part the audience cracked up at it. Just do your own little things that make it most memorable for you.

The priest who married us saw our One Ring rings and said that someone did the Aragon/Arwen, I choose a mortal life scene.

So I switched to Sprint a couple weeks ago. The Instinct was just too tempting. Thus far, I'm not disappointed, though the web browser is in dire need of a major update. I still have two AT&T-locked phones, though.
