Practical help for selecting the right words for your wedding, from pure suggestions to full sample ceremonies. A step-by-step overview of the many possible elements that can be included in a ceremony, from approval and dedication blessings, to the declaration of intent and pronouncement (the only legal stipulations involved), to vows and the exchange of rings, to the kiss and the close with abundant samples inspired by the spiritual or nonspiritual, traditional or alternative, biblical scripture, Native American blessings and prayers, Buddhist homilies, rabbinical teachings, Irish blessings and toasts; Armenian, Hawaiian, Inuit; Rumi, Oscar Levant, Kierkegaard; song lyrics, movies, children's books, television. Readers are encouraged to broaden the ceremony with personal touches, such as the ringing of little brass bells instead of the shower of rice or birdseed. Lastly, Dayna Reid takes on the bureaucracy; obtaining license, filing paperwork, officiating.
