'eccentric' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'people generally take on board wedding vow' is the wordplay.
'people generally' becomes 'we' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'take' becomes 'r' (abbreviation for 'recipe', Latin for 'take').
'on board' means one lot of letters goes inside another (inserted letters are taken on board).
'wedding vow' becomes 'I do' ('I do' is part of the traditional wedding vows).
'r' going within 'ido' is 'irdo'.
