This is a Christian wedding planner that will help you organize a beautiful, enjoyable wedding. Unlike most wedding planners available today, this planner looks at weddings from a distinctly Christian, Bible-based viewpoint.

This Christian wedding planner is based on three basic assumptions:

  1. Planning your wedding doesn’t have to take very long (unless you want it to).
  2. The cost of your wedding should not exceed what your family can afford.
  3. A Christian wedding is all about rejoicing in what the Lord has done in the lives of two people and their families.

All Things Are Ready is full of to-do lists, planning resources, tips, budgeting and timeline tools, options for personalizing your wedding, ideas for portraying biblical themes, and devotions to keep your focus on the Lord and the work He is doing in your life through marriage.

Here are a few other topics you’ll find in this planner:

  • How you can use your time as “bride” to be a blessing to others
  • Things to consider when choosing the best date and time for your wedding
  • Thinking creatively about a location for your wedding (with sixteen different location ideas)
  • How to be considerate when choosing your wedding attendants
  • How to identify your wedding priorities and spend your money where it counts most
  • How to save money by being flexible and thinking creatively
  • How to weave a consistent style and feel through all the elements of your wedding
  • Creative ideas for making your wedding uniquely yours
  • How to choose the right stores for your wedding gift registry
  • Why premarital counseling is one of the most important steps towards creating a glorious marriage.
  • How to prioritize and delegate wedding preparation tasks
  • A one-page master checklist of the important stuff (those things you don’t want to forget about)
  • Reasons for a longer or shorter engagement
  • How to plan a wedding in twelve weeks (or less)
  • How to incorporate biblical themes and imagery into your wedding

Sixteen chapters include:

  1. Engagement
  2. Setting Your Date
  3. Finding a Location
  4. Wedding Budget
  5. Wedding Style
  6. The Wedding Party
  7. Wedding Invitations
