Wedding planning has spawned a major industry. The average cost of the occasion now exceeds $25,000, and societal pressure to create the 'perfect day' is so strong that even Christian couples forget what God originally intended for the sacred marriage ceremony. This book serves as a guide to believers who want their wedding to portray the relationship of Christ with the church and to reflect the gospel to all in attendance.
There are chapters filled with practical information about everything from pre-marital counselling and choosing a wedding location, to other resources like a planning checklist and timeline, music suggestions, guidance on potential issues of conflict, a listing of traditional financial responsibilities, sample vows, and other ideas to put together a Christ-centred wedding.
"Grounded in the gospel and chock-full of practical advice... In a season where it is easy to feel overwhelmed by centrepieces and changing relationships, this book centres a bride's thoughts and affections on the God who never changes."? - Gloria Furman, Author of Glimpses of Grace and Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full
