I am so excited to tell you about All Things Are Ready. I first seen this awesome wedding planner last March at the Homeschool Expo that I always attend. Doorposts had it on display even though it was not available for purchase at that time. I have bought several things from Doorposts in the past and I have always been so pleased so I knew this planner would be great as well! I thought the idea of a christian wedding planner was brilliant and when I got the chance to review it a couple weeks ago I was so excited.
All Things Are Ready is a great organizational tool for planning a christian wedding. It is about glorifying God in the details and honoring Him in all you do, but it also covers all the important parts of pulling off your dream wedding!!
What you get is a big binder, inside the binder you will find each chapter divided by tabs. It has an extra big envelope attached in the back for storing important papers along the way. In the beginning you will find a master list that is an overview of everything you need to do before the big day. If there is something that doesn't apply to you, you can cross it off the list and remove that section from the binder! Some of the sections include: Finding a location, the Wedding Budget, Invitations, Wedding Style, Photography...and there is so so much more. Amy Hayes has thought of everything and it's all centered around Christ. She shares lots of scriptures throughout the planner and at the end of each section there is a special "For the Bride" meditation that helps you focus on the purpose of your wedding day - entering into a marriage covenant with the man God has provided to be your loving husband!
My favorite part of the whole planner is chapter 15. It is especially for those interested in bringing biblical themes into their wedding. This chapter is truly inspiring as it gives examples of ways to Glorify Christ and His word in every detail of the wedding. There are sample ceremonies and sample vows all base on The Word of God. It is amazing!!!
If you are a christian and are getting ready to head down the isle this is the planner for you! I am certain that you will be satisfied and thank the Lord for this great tool that will not only help you plan your wedding, but also help you to take time to rejoice in what the Lord is doing in your life!
