    Out dated

    This book goes over tradtional information but any advise on music to choose and how to have your wedding flow is outdated.

    Very Helpful

    This book has everything you could need for any religion. Although the minister should be able to give you good guidelines, this is very helpful.

    Incredible wedding resource!

    My husband and I wrote every word that was spoken during our ceremony and this book was an invaluable resource for accomplishing this awesome and meaningful task. It has both secular and non-secular readings as well as some multicultural readings that are appropriate for myriad types of love. Looking at the sample ring ceremonies and vows gave us ideas of how we wanted to express our unique love to one another. We found quotes for our wedding invitation and the sample wedding programs gave us lots of great ideas before crafting our own. We could not have planned such a meaningful and personal wedding without this book.
