How To Write Wedding Vows -
The Presentation

(Serving the Amicalola Falls area in the North Georgia Mountains)

Bride writing own vows

How to write wedding vows – this is where the bride gets to decide how she wants this part to read. The final part of the wedding ceremony is the presentation of the newly married couple.

It’s the bride’s prerogative to decide what she wants her name to be after the wedding. There is no legal precedent to change her name to her husband’s. It has simply been a matter of custom.

She can take her husband’s name, hyphenate her maiden name with her husband’s or keep her maiden name totally. If she does decided to change it, she will need to get a certified copy of the marriage license, after the minister turns it in, to be able to change driver’s licenses, social security cards, etc.

Some women are so happy to finally be married that they just go with the common Mr. and Mrs. John Doe. Others don’t care to be considered part of a man’s name and choose Jane and John Doe.

Still other brides prefer to go with Jane Smith and John Doe. It does not really matter which you choose, but this item should be the bride’s choice only.

Here are some of the ways the presentation can go.

1. Now go forth in your new life together as Mr. and Mrs. John Doe!

2. Please face your family and friends….. I now present to you

Jane Smith and John Doe, husband and wife.

3. I now present to you Mr. and Mrs. John Smith-Doe.

4. I present to you Jane and John Doe.

5. It is my privilege and honor to present Mr. and Mrs. ___________
