So, it's official now, Oshie and I are engaged!
We've wanted to get married for a while now, so I've already been planning a few things (when you plan to get married in 6 months you need all the time you can get!). After looking at dresses online, thinking about what food to serve and where we want to get married at, I finally started thinking about what our actual ceremony should be like. That's where this book came in.
I spent a long time looking at different wedding themed books until I found this one at Booksamillion. It has a little bit of everything in it, from poems to songs to religious quotes. Bits of everything I want to include in my ceremony.
All in all, this book is very helpful for planning your vows and wedding music. I liked the variety offered in this book. I also enjoyed learning about wedding traditions in other cultures. I feel that this book is a good fit for most any couple since it covers vows and traditions from many different religions and also secular viewpoints. Tweet
