I just purchased this book and I was very surprised at everything it had!!! This is definitely a must have for every engaged couple, and something that should be available at stores with wedding registry¹s. I bought the book because I was looking for specific information on Hispanic wedding traditions and how to incorporate them into a non-hispanic wedding. I never expected step by step directions with full detailed verbiage! Plus, I only found out this weekend that my fiancée wants to write our own vows or take a spin off of traditional ones. Initially I was a bit nervous about writing our own vows, but again, thanks to your book, we will be able to say exactly what we want using the samples you provided as templates. I was also very happy to see the order of events listed for almost everything that occurs in a wedding! I had no clue how I was going to set up the wedding programs before I received this book. Now, I have everything I need to get my programs printed and to give to the pastor performing the ceremony to have the wedding of my dreams! I never dreamed this book would be so detailed and so versatile. I just want to say this excellent book for every type of wedding!!! This is going to be a definite 'engagement gift' I will purchase for all future bridal couples I know!!! I can not express how happy I am that I purchased this book.Was this review helpful?

From one stressed out bride to another, do yourself a favor and pick up this book. I spent a lot of time searching various resources for the prefect ceremony before I was given this book. The format and abundance of choices makes this book useful to a wide variety of engaged couples. There are several ceremonies outlined in the book. If one section doesn't suit you, there are pages of choices to pick from. You can mix and match the different sections until you have a ceremony perfect for you, or go with one of the full ceremonies detailed in the book. There are even option for second weddings, bilingual and civil ceremonies. I was able to set up a traditional, elegant ceremony, word for word in less than 30 minutes. I heartily recommend this book to any would be newlyweds.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

When it came time for us to begin selecting our vows we got lost. We wanted something unique, yet we did not want to write our own. This book was the answer to our prayers. We are now going to have the wedding of our dreams with a completely customized ceremony, all thanks to this book. We are incredibly thankful that there was someone out there to write a book like this. Keep the new volumes coming Marty, this is definatly a book I will recomend to any new bride.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book was a delightful change from all the other wedding planners I looked at. In fact, it focuses mainly on the words spoken by the bride and groom and the wedding officiant rather than giving you budget checklists for all your vendors like all the other planners do. I wanted our ceremony to express our feelings and our 'love story.' This book gave us choices from the welcome to the pronouncement. We designed a beautiful ceremony that was unique to us. Plus, it was fun sitting down together and letting 'the groom' actually take part in something!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Of all the aspects of planning our wedding, this was, by far, the EASIEST. Brides, if you've been feeling 'fleeced' by the wedding industry, take heart. This is one decision you will be very happy with making. If you're looking to find a book to help with planning your ceremony, selecting your vows, and/or traditions, you will want this book. The book is extremely 'USER FRIENDLY' and is full of wonderful choices for how to make your ceremony special. I received this book to plan my own wedding about a week before my best friend's wedding and showed it to her. She loved it and said that she wished she had had the book when planning her own ceremony. I'm sure many brides like myself have found themselves up to their eyeballs making wedding planning decisions, but trust me, this was by far the easiest one to make. You've spent so much time deciding on your attire, the flowers, music, cakes, etc. but have you thought about what your minister and you and the groom will say other than 'Will you?' and 'I do.'? There are a variety of types of ceremonies (traditional, contemporary, civil, 'short and sweet', second-time marriages, interfaith, bi-lingual, etc.). You can even 'mix and match' or 'cut and paste' parts of the ceremony (the welcome, the vows, ring exchange, traditions, blessing, pronouncement, etc.) to suit your needs. If you've been looking endlessly in bookstores or online for some help on planning a very special wedding, you've found your book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

'A Wedding Ceremony to Remember' was a big lifesaver for me! It provides the perfect template for any wedding ceremony. The book will guide you through the various components of a typical ceremony, allowing you to customize and choose your style (i.e. traditional, short and sweet, etc.). It provides you with traditional readings and blessings, special touches and traditions. It also walks you through various wedding party formations so you can plan your entire ceremony beginning to end. This book is a definite necessity for any bride-to-be!Was this review helpful?
