    Rev. Bill Cochran of Say “I Do” Your Way discusses the process of writing your own wedding vows.

    Bill Cochran: Hi! I am Reverend Bill Cochran. Over the past 38 years I have married off hundreds probably thousands of couples and the process have laid them through the saying of their vows. Did you realize that vows are the only part of the wedding ceremony that you actually have to do. Everything else is just the stuff that we add onto make it interesting, but all you need to do here to go to just as the piece as you exchange vows and you are married, that quickly.

    So, if the vows are really at the center of the ceremony and you are probably looking at this because you are trying to figure out, 'Okay, how do we make this nice ceremony and how then do we insert our vows into it? You are probably thinking Is this something I can really do?

    What I do here is try to answer some of the questions you are dealing with right now about how do we write our vows and how do we -- what's the whole process that's involved in doing that and, is it something that you are saying that you can really do. Well, because the vows are so significant in the ceremony, I would ask you this question, why would you not want to write your vows, why not take advantage of the opportunity to really say what's on your heart and to do something very, very unique and see there is a gift that you can give to your intended.
