Non Traditional Wedding Vows have sometimes been thought of as being too modern or contemporary and, therefore, strange or inappropriate.

For example, some of the most unique and beautiful wedding vows are combined with the lovely unity sand ceremony.

Today's couples work with their minister and take a more active role in writing their own Non Traditional Wedding Vows according to their desired expressions of their steadfast love throughout the years.

Today's brides and grooms have difficulty determining just what this means! A modern wedding vow in this case could read, "And today I pledge to you all that I own, and all that I am." Modern English is much more suitable for today's couples than vows spoken in the Middle English of Shakespeare's time.

Contemporary writers of non traditional wedding vows suggest wedding ceremony vows that are much more simplistic and meaningful to modern couples.
