I would just search for older posts in the search bar.  It might give you some inspiration.

Best wishes with your planning.

Awww…..*hugs* it will be okay. I am a teacher and started planning during the school year. I had a major breakdown then with almost a year to go so I totally understand. I am doing as much as possible before summer break ends. Try to get as much done before your new job starts, but pace yourself.

Wedding planning is supposed to be fun, not overwhelming.When you get stressed and it seems like a chore–STOP and take a break. It will all work out Smile.

My officiant is letting us do whatever we want for the ceremony. We are having a Christian (but not Catholic…my understanding is those are quite long! ours is 15 minutes) ceremony and he emailed me a generic sample to start with. While googleing, I found that he had stolen it from about.com. And I laughed a lot.

Anyhow, about.com actually has some pretty decent ceremony outlines, and can give you some idea of what is “traditional” and maybe help figure out how you would like yours to be diffferent. It might have nontraditional ceremonys listed as well, I’m not really sure.

On that note… specifically what do you mean by nontraditional? Do you want your ceremony to be religious, or even just include a few religious elements? If so, maybe search for a typical ceremony from that religion and edit it into something that fits you better. Leave in anything meaningful to you/FI, and maybe a few familiar elements for any family memebers who might appreciate them (grandma, for example)

If you want it to be nonreligious, search for a secular wedding ceremony and see what pops up. I actually went to college with the folks in this post — they are a pretty awesome couple, and I’m sure you won’t find a better example!http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2011/11/20/a-secular-wedding-ceremony-from-start-to-finish/
