Do you brake for Renaissance fairs? Do most of the movies you rent come with English accents? Do you long to dress up in hoop skirts, flamboyant hats and tightly laced bodices that show off your décolletage?
If you’re like me and answered “yes” thricely, then chances are you’re at least considering a wedding with a historical theme. You’re probably also a little unsure how to arrange the period details of your French Revolution fête or Jane Austen-inspired garden party… so get thee a copy of romance writer Laura Crockett’s Wedding Ceremonies for the Historically Inclined.
From elegant Edwardian prose to a rousing pirate-style celebration, Ms. Crockett has compiled detailed ceremony scripts with authentic vows, suggested readings and music, even descriptions of the appropriate physical layout and participants. Whether you use her themed ceremonies as a blueprint or as a starting-point for your own poetic flourishes, Wedding Ceremonies can help you make some history of your own!
