When couples ask us if they should write their own vows or should they just read the standard vows,
we always encourage them to write it themselves. It can be something funny or something romantic, it doesn’t matter.
What we felt most importantly is, to remember the vows you made on the very day for the rest of your life.
And I know Sharon meant every single word she said when she made the vow.
“I promise to laugh with you and share your joy, when you are happy.
I promise to be always there for you, to cheer you up, when you are down.
I promise to scold you, to make you grow, when you are unreasonable.
I promise to give in and compromise, when we quarrel.
I promise to love you as long as I live.
Marriage vows are the promises that a couple makes to each other during a wedding ceremony. They serve as an anchor to keep the couple going through it all together. An assurance to love and cherish each other, for richer and poorer, in sickness and in health. For better or worse, till death do us part.
The recitation of marriage vows is a common activity in Singapore’s gatecrashing scene.
The difference here is, the recitation of vows is one-way, only from the groom to the bride. However, the vows is instead specially prepared by the bride herself. No matter how unfair it might seem, the process is always enjoyable to witness. From romantic promises to absurd requests.
