This is a workbook created to help anyone from any walk of life write and present beautiful words for a very special occasion. It takes each person who uses it through a creative writing process, step by step, that is clear and really doable. Think about this: without the exchange of vows, a wedding is just a big party. You want your vows to be as special as your love for each other so that they provide the foundation for your marriage. You also want that special day – and all of the parties and events surrounding it – to be the best possible experience for all. The Best Man, Maid or Matron of Honor, parents of the bride, and anyone else who wants to offer a toast or tribute during wedding events will find here the same step-by-step writing and rehearsal processes that will allow them to speak confidently and beautifully on your behalf. You will find many inspirational quotes to help jump-start vows, toasts, and tributes, as well as a wealth of tips and good advice about how to plan your wedding day. The experts love this workbook! Dr. William C. Compton, author of An Introduction to Positive Psychology, wrote, “This wonderful little book will help you plan vows and toasts that truly speak from your hearts. As you work with it, this book will also deepen your understanding of why you and your partner have chosen to take this path together.” Angie Commons of Premier Bride wrote, “Thanks to Carol and Robert for writing this amazing book. Haven’t we all been to weddings where the best man or father of the bride stumbled over appropriate things to say? Vows and Toasts is a valuable tool that helps take the nervous jitters out of that awkward moment – giving our speech maker instrumental advice on how and what to say! Thanks for making this happen and helping the bride with one less worry on her big day!” VERY IMPORTANT!

Finally, and MOST IMPORTANT, if you and your fiancé’ honestly answer all your questions in this workbook, and put your heart into your vows, then you will have words to live by, a foundation for the rest of your lives together.
