Hi :) Just over 2 weeks to go and I am freaking out! Anyway, 3 questions for you today:

1. Who normally says their vows first, the bride or the groom?

2. Is this a good order: 
                      - Stating that yes, we are free to marry each other
                      - Repeating 'I (name) take you (name) to be my wedded husband/wife' (OK legal bit over now)
                      - Saying our own vows
                      - Exchanging rings, maybe repeating some exchange of rings stuff from celebrant
                      - I now pronounce you...

3. What did you and/or your celebrant say with the exchange of rings?

Thankyou in advance!

In our ceremony, he spoke his vows first, but I'm not sure if that's something that's always done or what.

I don't know much about this but I'd say either:

A. Do what feels right with you two...you can't screw up the order, really...just because it didn't go the way it traditionally does doesn't make your marriage null lol so just do whatever feels right for you

B. Talk to your officiant about it, maybe they have some suggestions?

In order to still have a little bit of fun with things we decided to rock paper scissors for who had to speak first. Good luck :)

I spoke my vows first, but he spoke the ring part first, so it was even. :)

We said, "[Name], I offer you this ring as a sign of my enduring love and commitment" with the rings.
