    I voted something else.

    I wrote mine out, and am currently working on it with the preacher. We are getting married in a church, but ceremonies that go on and on and on and on about God and where every other word is God are just very uncomfortable to me. A lot of them do not pertain to what I feel love is,  therefore, I wrote out my ceremony the way I would be comfortable with. My preacher is good with it, but wanted to add more personal touches (he was my childhood preacher and wants to talk about how I’ve changed from a child to a woman, and that sort of thing). He understands that we still want a religious ceremony… but you don’t have to mention God every other word for it to be religious. We’ve included about 3-4 scriptures, plus one reading.

    When I say ceremony, I mean the entire thing too. From the greeting, to the homily, to what is said during the unity sand ceremony to the blessing. The only thing I didn’t write out was the prayer. Together, my preacher and I are working on the exact wording, but we’ve got about 2 1/2 months to finalize it, so I’m not in a rush.

    I voted “something else.” We were given a packet of options from our officiants, basically just going through and chosing bits and pieces from each section to make our own secular-with-a-Pagan/Celtic-sauce handfasting ceremony.

    I wrote ours from start to finish. I am paid for my writing skills, so I couldn’t imagine allowing someone else to write something so important to me. I knew I could do a way better job than anyone else could at writing a ceremony that fit us perfectly. It was, hands down, my absolute favorite wedding DIY project.

    I would love to read some of these!! We are writing our own and I’m a little intimidated to start it.
