My whole life I've been what my mother likes to call "an emotionless rock" because I'm just not much of a crier (😂). That being said, I'm probably going to cry like a little baby during the ceremony and during our vows. I'm a pretty private person as is, but not really with my FH.
We have pretty much decided that we will read standard vows during the ceremony in front of everyone, but we will each write our own and give them to the other person to read, or find time to read them to each other at some point.
I'm not really sure when the best time would be. Please help us with the following options and which you think would be best, or if you have a better idea please let me know
1) give vows to each other at rehearsal dinner. Read before bed that night. (We will be staying with our wedding party, separately and wont see each other)
2) sneak away between rehearsal dinner and going to our cabins to read them to each other
3) meet up in the morning and read them to each other (we would have to see each other, obviously)
4) our photographer wants sunset pictures, so we read them then and risk me ugly crying on film, but have a romantic setting with just us, and we don't have to say loud vows before the wedding.
