They are free of patriarchal language such as “I now pronounce you man and wife” and “will you love, honor and obey” and “You may kiss the bride.” (We say “you may kiss.”)It’s intended that the reader cut and paste your own names, change and insert language as you will and print the script for use in the ceremony. These scripts have been used by the author in several hundred ceremonies over the decades and the feedback is that they spoke to the issues of love and marriage in ways that meet legal requirements, the true duties and the hope and love present at this, one of life’s peak occasions.Contemporary / TraditionalBride marches down aisle, they have vows that outline the true beauty, love and honoring, yet point out the challenges, that you need to work through the hard issues and have empathy and you’re pledging to do this. Bride and groom will speak vows they have written, spelling out for the spouse, family and friends exactly what they’re getting into with this marriage and how they want everyone to support them and hold them to it.New Age, Alternative, “Spritual But Not Religious” Usually in a CircleThese are often held outside in a “sacred space” with markers or stones for honoring of the four directions, opening ceremony -- using incense for air/east, candle for fire/south, water for west, earth or crystal for north.
