Saying Vows at Church Ceremony?

Chantelle, on January 16, 2023 at 13:14 Posted in Wedding ceremony 0 5

So my fiancé and I are really wanting to have our wedding ceremony at our church. We basically had all of our Catholic sacraments up until this point. Also had all our graduations at this church (elementary, junior high and high school). It holds a lot of history for us. However, we found out that at a Catholic church, we cannot recite our personal vows. Which kind of sucks, because we have always talked about writing our own vows and reciting it to each other, especially in front of our loved ones.

Now my question is, would it be odd to say it at the reception? We would do it during our speech at the end. Any thoughts or other ideas?

    If you are having speeches at your reception you could incorporate your personal vows within the speeches

    It's your reception... you get to do whatever you like, odd or not! Smiley smile You could also begin with the exchange of vows, then the toast, then the reception.

    People have been doing their first look and at the same time reading their own vows just for this reason. Could be an option. You could do it at the reception, but keep in mind it's already going to be a busy reception with speeches, mingling, dancing, cake cutting you may not have the time.

    I think this is your next best option considering you cannot say it at the church and you are set on having ceremony there. I think it would be beautiful and work out just fine Smiley smile
