Comprehensive, creative, and up-to-date, Baker's Pastoral Handbooks have become indispensable resources for pastors, lay leaders, and seminary students.
Baker's Wedding Handbook includes updated ceremonies from eleven denominations. In addition to wedding ceremonies, services for the renewal of vows, remarriage, and the blessing of a civil ceremony are included. It gives suggestions for vows, prayers, candle lighting, communion, scripture readings, and music.
Ideas and guidance for funerals and other ceremonies can be found in our Minister Training section.
The essential guide for anyone performing a wedding.
By Callie Sway, Lexington, KY
I promised my cousin I would perform his wedding ceremony right after he told me he had gotten engaged. Time went by, the wedding was only two months away and I was completely unprepared to perform the ceremony. Within two days I was able to get ordained with the Universal Life Church Monastery and I ordered the Baker’s Wedding Handbook. This handbook had everything I needed to perform my cousins wedding. Each ceremony in the book is broken down into a step-by-step process of how the wedding should be performed and really walks you through the whole process. I was able to work out the ceremony with my cousin and his fiancé, customizing each aspect so it would be absolutely perfect on their wedding day. After you get ordained be sure to pick up this guide, all the stress of performing a wedding will go away.
