Seal your vows with a pinky swear #Ceremony Advice#ceremony#steal-this-idea#vow examples Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jun 15 2012) Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photo by Michael Porter We've seen a couple of high-fives exchanged over the nuptials, but I am loving this pinky swear from Bethany and her groom. Bethany said they did it because "you NEVER break a pinky promise." Sounds like the right amount of serious business to me! If there's another "secret handshake" that you share with your partner, totally roll it out with your vows.

Reply We love rock-paper-scissors! http://offbeatbride.com/tag/rock-paper-scissors-wedding Reply Me and my boy made a pinky promise once that was right where our relationship began. Sitting on the stairs in my student halls at 3am after talking all night long. We had gone through a difficult time at the start of our relationship and so we made a pinky promise "to be friends no matter what". At special moments we have solemnly renewed that pinky promise. We were thinking of quietly renewing it together after the wedding. Reply We've been planning on pinky promises. 🙂 Reply Oh, I love this!!!! We pinky swear on all the important stuff! Reply Perfect!
