Say What!? The Weirdest Wedding Vows According to Real Guests

Ceremony & Vows, Real Weddings

Now that personalized vows are gaining more and more popularity (yay!) there's no telling what you'll hear the next time you attend a wedding. From inside jokes no one else got to poetic promises that completely missed the mark, we asked real guests to share the weirdest wedding vows they've ever heard. Brace yourselves brides, because you're in for a real treat.

"This girl I know from high school posted her wedding vows on Facebook, and the closest thing she made to an actual vow was telling him she'd shave his back when they get old." — Jess

"At my cousin's ceremony they incorporated this weird rose and vase analogy in their vows. It was probably meant to be poetic, symbolizing that they'd always be open to each other's love. It came across as super sexual though, and I don't even have a dirty mind! They said stuff like, 'I'll always have a rose ready for your vase' and 'My vase will always be open for your rose.' WTF!" — Tessa

"My favorite from a wedding I photographed in Germany was, 'And I promise there will always be bagels.' That morning, the bride had planned to make the groom a bagel, as he loves them so much. When the bakery in the small town didn't have any, she cut the middle out of a normal bread roll and stuck in a sign saying, 'I'm a bagel.' " — Kate

"I promise to never complain about your stinky shoes and I promise to never show up on time so you won't be thrown off." — Claire

"The bride was trying to be funny and promised to change her groom's diapers when he got old. Ew!" — Arica

"My brother's wedding was super sketch. He made the vows up on the spot and it included this line: 'I promise to clean your glasses when you smudge them.' Um, what?" — Leona

"I went to a wedding recently where they did an actual pinky promise. It was kind of cute but kind of weird too." — Kenzie

"I kid you not, the groom promised to be the bride's slave, and then they had everyone stand to give them a Vulcan blessing." — Melissa

"It wasn't the vows that were all that weird, but the fact that the bride sang them and didn't have the best voice, was slightly awkward." — Shea
