Required Reading: Bartlett's Words for the Wedding

Even the most well-read engaged couples struggle with their vows, yet for some reason publishers have failed to fill the demand for a compendium of appropriate wedding-day material—until now. Bartlett’s Words for the Wedding is an incredibly useful survey, including everything from e.e. cummings’ “i carry your heart with me (i carry it in mine)” to Shakespearean musings to traditional Apache wedding prayers and Irish blessings. A flip through its smart, heartfelt passages will also serve as a wonderfully soothing balm for frazzled pre-wedding nerves.
