We are having my stepfather officiate, so I’m in a similar situation.  First, we read this: http://offbeatbride.com/2013/02/friend-officiant#.Uz3SHIVbNQ4  Then, we went to this: http://offbeatbride.com/2012/10/wedding-ceremony-101#.Uz3SXYVbNQ4

I’m not sure if either will help, but they gave us some great starting points at least.  By the way, I think it’s very sweet to have a loved one involved.  The only weird thing is when my stepdad tells people, “Oh, I’m going to marry wvlefty in December!” and people mistake the officiating for the marrying my FI will do… awkward!

jess21love:   I’m not sure what you mean by “layout” – do you mean the written ceremony and vows, or where people stand?

If you are referring to the written vows, you can google “wedding vows”  or “sample wedding vows”  or even “secular wedding vows”  and pick out parts you like, words you like, and piece it together.  That’s what we did for our secular wedding, with a family member officiating.

Google “a practical wedding writing ceremony” – you’ll get some great blog posts from A Practical Wedding that are really helpful.
