You have asked a friend or family member to officiate your wedding ceremony. Now what?

“You saved the day! When my dear friends asked me to officiate their wedding, I was so honored, excited… And scared!  Talk about pressure! How do I make the most important day of their life special, intimate, personalized and flow nicely from the beginning march to the kiss?  Your workbook is genius! It gave me all the ideas and verbiage for what to say and when….Being able to easily customize the ceremony took such a load off my mind – because I am NOT a good writer!-, and the couple LOVED it! Thank you, thank you! Much LOVE!!!!” –  Jenny Driessen

Have an idea of what to do but still need a little help?

If you just need information on the structure of a ceremony and the how/why in regards to the pieces within the structure, purchase our Ceremony Creation Quick Guide. This downloadable guide includes almost all the ceremony creation information that is in our workbook (minus the pre-written pieces).

Or, maybe the ceremony writing part is easy or already done and all you really need to know is how to manage the logistical pieces such as standing, sitting, vows, ring exchange, etc.  In that case, we have you covered with our Ceremony Logistics Quick Guide. This downloadable guide includes most of the logistical details that are in our workbook and is guaranteed to help your Officiant direct the ceremony with ease.
