It simply gives a basic framework - and that's it. The poor proof reading/editing was hard to ignore after awhile. And it's a "LESBIAN BRIDE'S" guide. So I am perplexed as to why the author, with so much experience as an officiant, would choose in the chapter, "How To Write A Love Letter" would say, and I quote, "...the way HE makes you feel, what makes HIM special in your eyes, and why you want to spend the rest of your life with HIM." This isn't a generalized "how to" book! It's titled to be for Lesbians - two WOMEN. There won't be a "him" in our ceremony.......
Two books I felt gave much better guidance/suggestions are: "The Lesbian Couple's Guide to Wedding Planning" - Bernadette Coveney Smith and
"Offbeat Bride" - Ariel Meadow Stallings (all couple types)
Carefully created vows should not only fulfil legal requirements, they should touch everyone’s hearts. They may make you cry. They may make your guests cry. However, they should not make anyone squirm, roll their eyes, or laugh with embarrassment. By guiding you step-by-step through the process, this book will show you how easy it can be to write vows that speak your hearts and your loving intentions towards each other in simple and honest words. It will also help you make the practical decisions needed when there are two brides, and to navigate the complexities of creating vows that comply with the legal requirements whatever they are.
