    Rev. Bill Cochran of Say “I Do” Your Way recommends writing vows that are heartfelt but concise.

    Host: How long do wedding vows need to be?

    Bill Cochran: Long enough for you to say what's on your heart or remember at the wedding people don't necessarily want to know everything that's on your heart. So, to give you a good answer to that question, I would have to say that you really want to keep them concise and you want to look at maybe the top two or three things that you want to get across in sharing these. Even though you are writing them and even though you are willing to spill your heart to all of your guests, remember the shorter and more concise they are, the better your guests will remember them and appreciate them and your spouse hopefully would be able to remember them better that way as well.
