WEDDING SERVICE PLANNER

The following contains samples of various aspects of a wedding service. This includes prayers, readings, blessings, vows, ring ceremonies, etc; each under their own headings. Follow the links in the "Outline of A Wedding" for the various components of the service. Also included in this site are helps for "The Renewal of Wedding Vows".

This document is not meant to be comprehensive, nor is it meant to define your choices. A great variety of things can be done, and done in ways different from the samples given below. The order of things can also vary, and music or songs can (for example) be slotted into different spots - such as during candle lighting and following the Wedding Address, etc. You can choose from our selections and/or write your own material (which can be a very rewarding thing to do).

In all of the following the language of "church" and "sanctuary" is employed. However in marriages that take place in homes, gardens, or other venues, the same principles are involved.
