I’M INTERRUPTING THIS REGULARLY SCHEDULED WEDDING WEDNESDAY FOR A VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT….
I had twins! Kids! Baby goats! They look puppies! ADORABLE! Seriously, I have tiny hands and look how big they look compared to my baby’s head!
Meanwhile, writing your own wedding ceremony text…….
I could have never done it with The Wedding Ceremony Planner by Judith Johnson. There is sample text, sample ceremonies, how, why, what, etc. There is also valuable information on checklists to generate and write if you are really being in charge of your own ceremony. If you have a seasoned officiate, priest or pastor doing your ceremony, the checklists probably aren’t necessary. For our outdoor ceremony with my husband’s uncle officiating, it was an absolute requirement for keeping organized. I’ll feature my checklists next week.
For now, I am providing my own wedding ceremony text to you as a sample. I picked and pulled things from everywhere until I crafted them just how I wanted. It took a while, but it was incredibly rewarding. And then the groom’s uncle also made some changes to fit his ease of reading, etc.
You will notice we did a nontraditional unity ceremony using a Unity Cross, which is displayed in our home today. Here is also the link to our wedding video, with some of the vows, in case you missed it.
And click on this link for the ceremony text, as my blog provider wouldn’t allow me to attach it.
