We have narrowed down our readings. We will have several people do readings for us. We have picked our vows and what we would like our officiant to say. I just need to work it all out together. It will probably be a rather longer ceremony than most people are used to.
Here's a rough outline and our vows.
Opening Remarks from Dr. R.
Blessing from MF? (maybe if she can attend)
(I would like to fit in these next two, but I am not sure if I can.)
I would like to have the choir or a choir sing Feels Like Home x Chantel K.
And I would like to somehow work in an excerpt from a musical.
Then, the vows. (We are doing a non-traditional set I do not want to share yet.)
, take thee (name) , to be my (wife/husband) ,to have and to hold, from this day forward,for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish,till death do us part, and thereto I pledge thee my faith.
**These are traditional Methodist vows. We are being wed in a Methodist chapel by a Methodist minister it only makes sense, plus there is a deeper meaning to these vows as well.
Then, ring ceremony.
