we are having a civil wedding and we want too make it as nice as poss.

[i:3k8dtgki]You have known each other from the first glance of
acquaintance to this point of commitment. At some point,
you decided to marry. From that moment of yes to this
moment of yes, indeed, you have been making promises
and agreements in an informal way. All those
conversations that were held driving in a car or over a
meal or during long walks - all those sentences that
began with “When we’re married” and continued with “I
will and you will and we will”- those late night talks that
included “someday” and “somehow” and “maybe”- and
all those promises that are unspoken matters of the heart.
All these common things, and more, are the real process
of a wedding. The symbolic vows that you are about to
make are a way of saying to one another, “You know all
those things we’ve promised and hoped and dreamt-
well, I meant it all, every word.” Look at one another and
remember this moment in time. Before this moment you
have been many things to one another- acquaintance,
friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, and even
teacher, for you have learned much from one another in
these last few years. Now you shall say a few words that
take you across a threshold of life, and things will never
quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you
shall say to the world,
this- is my husband, this- is my wife.[/i:3k8dtgki]
