Light or Serious Ceremony?

Brooke, on April 19, 2022 at 15:13 Posted in Wedding ceremony 0 16

Hello fellow Brides!

I kind of already have my mind made up about this one, but I was wondering what other brides are doing for their ceremony - keeping it light and humorous, or staying serious and traditional?

Our officiant is the father of the Best Man, and based on his personality, and mine and fiance's personalities, we've decided to go the light and humorous route. We also decided to go this because it matches the group of people we have invited to our wedding, and we want to make the day as much about who we are as a couple as we can Smiley smile

What is everyone else doing?

    Short. Simple. Humorous for sure.
    I want like a 20 minute ceremony, then a big party with our family & friends!

    Go with your personalities hands down. Both sides of our families are not the serious type, so to have a serious ceremony it would be off for us.

    I would say we are having a more traditional ceremony as it will be in a church and my pastor is officiating. However, even when preaching during a regular Sunday service, he has us laughing, so I have a feeling it will be a mix of traditional and humor as well!

    We are having a religious and traditional ceremony. My FH’s father is our pastor and officiating our wedding.

    We are exciting for the ceremony ❤️

    Simple, sweet and possibly a sprinkle of humour

    We are just starting to consider this... we are both non-traditional and our guests aren't so much either. My initial thought is some lightness but not too far off the path... we've waited 20 years so I don't want to blow the moment.

    Ours will probably be on the light side. We told our officiant we want a sweet and simple ceremony.

    Ours will be on the lighter side. We found our pastor and he does both traditional and non traditional. He gave us a booklet to go through and we need to outline which parts we want him to say and what no to say.

    We were easy going since we knew our Officiant was just my sign Capricorn too and had sone laughs and comments during the ceremony. It was good and entertaining.

    Our ceremony will be more sweet and serious rather than humorous. We tend to laugh a lot together which I love but we just want a softer side for the ceremony

    We are completely non-traditional people, although we found an amazing officiant who does alternative type traditions (handfasting, earth honoring, unity candles, ect), so something we have considered, but we honestly just want that part done so we can go party. so probably will be quick and sweet, hopefully with some laughs along the way.

    If that's more your style then you should do that! We decided to do a bit of both!

    We went with something closer to serious. We wanted to take in the weight of the moment as much as we can. The speeches during the reception is when we let loose a bit.

    Hi Brooke,

    We are going more on the serious side, my FH is Indigenous and we are having a smudging ceremony as part of our vows..
