Let me tell you, one of the hardest things about planning my own wedding was trying to write the wedding ceremony. I was not a fan of the traditional vows (I obey no one but myself thankyouverymuch) and really wanted to find something that reflected our concept of what we wanted our relationship to be. If you're in the same boat but looking for alternative vows with a more creepy/scary lean - well, here ya go! Some wedding vows - Stephen King style!
From "Pet Sematary"
There is no gain without risk, perhaps no risk without love.
From "The Dead Zone"
We all do what we can, and it has to be good enough, and if it isn't good enough, it has to do.
From "Lisey's Story"
You want to be good for the ones you love, because you know that your time with them will end up being too short, no matter how long it is.
From "The Stand"
Shall I tell you what sociology teaches us about the human race? I'll give it to you in a nutshell. Show me a man or a woman alone and I'll show you a saint. Give me two and they'll fall in love.
From "Different Seasons"
The most important things are the hardest to say, because words dimish them.
From "The Shining"
The world's a hard place, Danny. It don't care. It don't hate you and me, but it don't love us, either. Terrible things happen in the world, and they're things no one can explain. Good people die in bad, painful ways and leave the folks that love them all alone. Sometimes it seems like it's only the bad people who stay healthy and prosper. The world don't love you...But see that you get on. That's your job in this hard world, to keep your love alive and see that you get on, no matter what.
