Dove Review

This documentary includes interviews with several Christian couples, who talk about their courtships, engagement, wedding plans, and their marriages. It is informative and the couples are quite open, discussing topics such as waiting to make love on the wedding night and their struggles with that.

Beginning with the Genesis account of Adam and Eve, this DVD features topics about the proposal, in-laws, choosing a wedding dress, wedding party selection, staying within a budget, gift registry, photography, and other important subjects. The DVD feels personal as a few of the husbands discuss asking the bride’s father for her hand in marriage, and some of the approaches the men took to surprise their wives when they popped the question.

This DVD is well done and in good taste, and it encourages the viewers to include God in their marriages. We happily award this DVD our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
