With less than three months to go until we get married, I’ve decided it’s time to start working on the part of the whole thing that I look forward to the most: the ceremony.
I was a bit uncomfortable about writing it; if I know every word, every passage, every sentiment, will I feel as engaged (no pun intended) during our ceremony?
But after much web surfing and some shower time (don’t you do your best thinking in the shower?), I’m very excited. I figure it’s much like live music: I may know every word and every note, but there’s just something special about hearing a song sung live.
So, as I get started (Wheeee! I’m excited!), I thought I’d share all of my ceremony links from Weddingbee. You can recreate my search by reading through every post tagged “ceremony” ”” or you can just use the list below.
- Mrs. Ant’s “The Purpose of Marriage”
- Mrs. Emerald’s first draft of vows
- Mrs. Tomato’s Love and Joy quotes
- Mrs. Corn’s unusual and very touching reading
- Mrs. Penguin’s ceremony script
- Mrs. Lovebug’s group blessing (Have I mentioned my crush on Mrs. Lovebug?)
- Mrs. Cookie’s readings
- And a couple of posts by yours truly with quotes that I love
I can’t leave out the fabulous DIY Bride’s very comprehensive ceremony download section, even though it’s not from WB (and I’m working from a theme here, people). You have to register to download files, but it’s really worth it.
I may have missed a few, so as I continue in this (exciting!) process, I’ll update you. Also, while we’re on the subject of marriage, have you seen the Simple Marriage blog? Happy reading.
What inspiration sources are you using to craft your ceremony? Have I mentioned how excited I am?
