I could not put this book down! It is the easiest, step-by-step guide that I have come across while planning my wedding. It doesn't tell you "you can do something like this, and here's another general idea" It says "you need a blessing for your rings...here are 5 ways to say it...pick one!" I loved it and would highly recommend it to the stressed and weary bride-to-be!

I bought this because we have been desperately searching for a single passage of intro text at the beginning of our ceremony. We already have everything else set. However, while this book had a lot of interesting wordings for a lot of different religions, it was nothing like we were looking for. It was similar to the corresponding chapter in "The Everything Wedding Book." (Check it out, if you haven't -- LOTS more good info for the entire planning process!)
This book might be a very good resource for vow readings, though, esp. if the bride and groom are of different faiths.

We have used this book for some years now to assist the couples we marry in sorting their vows. Of the several books we have for this purpose, as Officiants of Christian marriages, this book has been the most helpful - for us & the couples as they choose their special words. Rather than choosing all the words a particular denomination uses, the couples have taken words from the different ones to say what best expresses them. We recommend it.

I'm getting married in about ten weeks, and I just bought this book yesterday. I went to a bookstore (sorry, Amazon) and looked through dozens of 'wedding vow books', and found them all schmaltzy and trite. "Words for Your Wedding" is what most of the others are not -- simple, inexpensive, and completely lacking in advertisements being passed off as advice. The authors identify the most common parts of the service, and then give you alternative wordings from various Christian denominations (there is a short section on Jewish weddings in the back). This book clearly isn't for everyone, but I would absolutely recommend it for couples who are focusing on their marriage rather than their wedding.

I have used this resource with couples for twenty years. Because I knew David Glusker, I was quite certain this would be a good resource. I have been extremely satisfied with his comprehensive approach. When my copy was misplaced, I simply had to order another.
