Designed with couples and wedding officiants in mind, this must-have book begins with a brief introduction to common parts of a wedding ceremony to help you get started, followed by a detailed look at the Vow Exchange tradition. 


You’ll find dozens of real vow examples and a simple ‘three question template’ to help you write your own personal marriage vows. 


You’ll also find dozens of wedding ceremony scripts to inspire you, including our 10 most popular scripts (beloved by couples and officiants alike!) and a large collection of other favorites – from secular and non-religious wedding scripts, to inclusive LGBTQ+ sample ceremonies, religious and spiritual ceremonies, funny and lighthearted to traditional and reserved, and everything in between. 


No matter what style of wedding or elopement you’re planning, you’ll find examples to help you plan the perfect celebration, and create seamless transitions between each part of the marriage ceremony. 


Because it’s so easy to use, this collection is perfect for couples planning a wedding or elopement, first-time wedding officiants and friends asked to officiate, and professional officiants who want to bring fresh energy into their services and attract more clients.
