Over the last two decades, The Pastor’s Wedding Manual has become an indispensible guide for planning and performing weddings. This updated edition recaptures the timeless suggestions of the original manual but also offers fresh ideas and contemporary suggestions. Timely issues are addressed—such as premarital interviews, wedding coordinators, and the order of the service—as well as new perspectives on traditional facets of wedding planning—rehearsals, vows, and music. Also included are entire wedding ceremonies, both traditional and contemporary, that can be edited or used in their totality.
