Format: Paperback
I loved this book. My partner and I come from totally different backgrounds and were not comfortable going with either of our traditions. Metrick helped us draw the best from our histories and blend it with our values and desires for an original ceremony. The book is comprehensive and easy to use, offering lots of great examples. There are wonderful quotes, great humor, practical advice, and answers to many questions.

I'm a minister, and I collect books on wedding ceremonies, particularly alternative ones, because I end up helping the bride/groom to plan and organize things. When it comes to the actual ceremony, we sit and write the ceremony together. This book contains everything in ONE work that is necessary to do the job.

Had I bought this early on, I could have saved myself lots of money. It has lovely examples and explains how and why to put each part of the ceremony in, or to skip if you prefer.

Other books are more geared towards the bride only, and focus on all aspects of putting together a wedding. This is the best resource on just the ceremony.

This book is comprehensive and easy to use. I had no idea how many options there could be for a ceremony or how to put one together. Metrick, has provided a step by step guide with wonderful examples. I've seen reviews of her work as an officiant on the Knot, and apparently she's draws from many traditions with ease and is great to work with. I loved the excerpts of ceremonies that she includes in the book. What a good way to see possibilities.

Format: Paperback
This book is a combination of advice and worksheets for planning your wedding/commitment ceremony. It includes sample services with an
emphasis on intercultural ceremonies.

It's ... okay. The author seems to concentrate so much on the types of ceremonies she's lead in her work, that this book is a bit more of a departure from the type of guide I was hoping for. While she's got some good ideas, I think the book's main strength is the author asking you about the parts of the ceremony she outlines, asking you what you find important. The rest of the book ... well, wasn't necessary to me.
