The wedding ceremony is the reason for the wedding. Everything else that happens during a wedding day is there to complement the ceremony.
It is crazy to me how many couples I've encountered that save their ceremony planning to the last minute. Then, it began to all make sense. I learned that they were using wedding planning checklists they found online which recommended planning the ceremony 2-3 months before the wedding - after almost every other detail was taken care of.
2-3 months before the wedding is not when you want to be making decisions on what to include in your ceremony. You know what my couples tend to be feeling around 2-3 months out? Anxious. All of a sudden the big moment was getting near. They had so much to finish before the wedding, everyone is giving them advice and opinions, and they were about to pay all the final balances on their vendors at once. The last thing on their mind? How their ceremony is going to go.
In this wedding planning podcast episode, I'm going to share with you why I think it's important to outline and draft your ceremony first, how to do that, and some of the logistics you need to think about for your ceremony.
Your ceremony is arguably the most important part of your wedding day. Your priorities list should reflect that. Think about your ceremony early and often. Listen to this episode to learn what a ceremony script consists of, considerations for planning seating, processional timing, and more.
