Okay, so in my last post, I told you all how I was a badass, rebellious bride, fighting the good fight against the WIC and throwing all the basic, boring, antiquated wedding traditions out the window…or not.
Anyway, it’s all well and good to talk about where we’re breaking with tradition, but really, there are a lot more traditions we’re keeping than not. So, without further ado: how Stallion and I are keeping things traditional.
- Vows. Nope, Stallion and I are not writing our own vows. Done right, original vows are beautiful and heartfelt and touching (see Mrs. Jam and Mrs. Blue Whale if you want great examples). Done wrong, they can be kind of awkward, to say the very least. For us, there’s something to be said about using the same vows countless couples before us have recited for years and years, reaffirming the significance of what we’re about to do. The vows our officiant has provided us are as follows:
Filly, do you take Stallion to be your lawfully wedded husband, to be held together in the state of matrimony, to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, keeping yourself only unto him, so long as you both shall live?
Really, what else is there to add? Promising I’ll let Stallion pick what we watch on Netflix once in a while? I’d be happy to make that promise, just maybe not in the middle of the most important commitment I’ll ever make in my life.
