A Wedding of Your Own is the perfect book for every couple planning a Catholic wedding, for married couples wanting to renew their appreciation of Christian marriage, and for ministers serving engaged or married couples. In the rush of practical preparations, it is easy to neglect emotional preparation for a wedding and marriage.
A Wedding of Your Own explains the entire wedding ceremony in detail, allowing each couple to make their wedding unique and personally meaningful. In this completely revised edition the author considers the following questions: Is a church just an attractive and traditional setting for a wedding? What if the bride and groom are of different denominations? Is the Christian understanding of sexuality, love and marriage all out of touch with the lives of people today, or does it present a wonderful challenge?
The book looks also to the years beyond the wedding day, as the process of wedding one another continues to deepen. The marriage ceremony is therefore put in context as a beginning rather than an end in itself.
