Finally, a practical guide to wedding ceremonies that not only includes the traditional, but creative, personalized ideas for the twenty-first century bride and groom.

Diane Warner's Contemporary Guide to Wedding Ceremonies answers all your questions, including:

  • What are the minimal elements required for a legal ceremony?
  • How do we choose our ceremony venue?
  • How do we choose our officiant?
  • What are the 10 conventional ceremony elements?
  • What are the 12 most popular ways to personalize a ceremony?
  • What are typical elements of a religious ceremony?
  • What are the five most popular secular ceremonies?
  • How can we personalize our ceremony venue?
  • Should we hire a wedding planner?

Diane includes real-life examples for each ceremony element, which you may adopt in whole or part, plus helpful ideas for composing your own. For example, when choosing a ceremony reading, you may have a friend read the lyrics of a poignant love song or the writings of your favorite author.

Whether you're planning a Catholic ceremony in a magnificent cathedral, an informal ceremony in a rose garden, or a novelty ceremony at the top of a ski slope, Diane tells you how you can make your wedding special by personalizing your ceremony. You may decide to add one of these special elements:

  • Circle of Acceptance ceremony
  • Family Medallion ceremony
  • Handfasting
  • Covennant of Salt
  • Ceremony of the Wishing Stones
  • Unity Candle ceremony
  • Guests/family commitment ceremony

This guidebook is a must-have for every engaged couple who wants a meaningful ceremony that includes poignant, personal touches that will be remembered for the rest of their lives.
