Secular and Nondenominational

When it comes to your secular wedding you don't have to follow a particular format, and it can be as spiritual or non-spiritual as you prefer.

Jewish

Protestant

Each Christian denomination has different standards for ceremony and vows. The church's officant, minister or pastor can also answer your questions about variation.
