Fab Features of a Ceremony Your Guests Will Appreciate

During the ceremony, all eyes may be on the two of you, but your guests will still be paying attention to the little details. From the guests’ first arrival to the venue, the wedding celebration is truly a sensory experience. What they see, hear, touch, smell – all add to their overall impression. Here are a few thoughts to consider to give your guests a welcoming and wonderful experience. This post addresses specifically the time the guests arrive to when you walk the aisle as newlyweds!

PARKING

Make sure that the venue has ample parking and if not, arrange a shuttle, or valet service. If you know there are guests with limited mobility, map out the safest route so ushers or signage can direct them accordingly.

SIGNAGE

Be strategic where to place signs so guests are properly oriented to the day’s events. Chalkboards are still the latest trends in signage, but wood planks and window panes are also popular. Try something different like blackened metal, marble, slate, and tile. Whatever the surface, make sure the signs are legible and most importantly, that they clearly direct guests with locations, instructions, and event timelines.

REFRESHMENTS

It’s no fun as a guest to brave some windy country road to your secluded venue destination on a hot day, only to arrive to the site, sweaty in a suit, without any cold water to drink! Pre-wedding refreshments not only welcome guests but tell them you care about their comfort as well as their health. Have a table set up with cool herb- and fruit-infused water. Wine and champagne are options to consider. Have candy and mints available, or go for lite appetizer fare if appropriate.

WELCOME AND GIFT TABLE

One smart landing spot for guests is the welcome table. Draped and decorated for a cohesive look with your wedding, the table can have the guest book, framed couple engagement photos, and space for cards/gifts.

MUSIC

The prelude music offers guests some level of entertainment and ambience that signals a special affair. Choose a DJ that will play that perfect song list or the live musician who can put your guests into the mood for a wedding.

SEATING

Whether you have invited 16 or 160, comfort is key. The chair itself does not have to be the most expensive to rent, but think about the placement so that guests do not have to withstand extremes of weather, for instance, glaring, direct sun. Also, angled, curved, and row length can affect the guests’ enjoyment. Ideally, every seat should have a good view of the two of you, and encourage getting to know each other.

CEREMONY LENGTH AND TONE

Your guests came from far and near to see the two of you exchange vows and kiss as newlyweds. They neither want the ceremony to be too short nor too long. But what is “just right”? That’s really up to you, but a typical ceremony length is between 20-30 minutes, including the processional and recessional. Also, you want the ceremony to reflect the two of you – do not feel obligated to entertain your guests with bells and whistles at the ceremony, they would rather experience something that is authentically you.

PERSONAL VOWS AND STORY

Some of the more popular elements of a ceremony are the couple’s exchange of personal vows, and a retelling of the story of how they met. Consider adding these to give your ceremony an extra personalized touch that your guests will connect with and enjoy.

Talk to your venue, your planner, your spouse about designing the ceremony space to maximize the guest experience. Dazzling decor and excellent entrees may get the buzz, but thoughtful details give the lasting, memorable impressions of your fabulous celebration!

Honor Heritage with a Custom Unity Ritual

Serbian plum brandy, known as slivovica, to be shared for a custom wedding unity ritual that will honor the heritage of the families

In Serbia, the plum is the national fruit, and plum brandy, known as slivovica, is the national beverage. It is shared during gatherings to signify prosperity, health, and happiness. A couple came to Reverend Rick Tan of Tan Weddings & Events a few days before their wedding ceremony and wanted a way to honor the groom’s Serbian heritage.

After having collaborated on their wedding ceremony script together, Reverend Tan suggested incorporating slivovica as a unity ritual. The couple was elated! And when the couple had mentioned that the officiant often partook of a shot of the plum brandy with the couple, Reverend Tan was all in! He got to work on drafting words that would be well suited to the occasion while respecting the tradition.

In Wedwordy, to incorporate a Unity Ritual, add it from the Elements Library into your Elements Flow (the ceremony sequence). There are ten curated unity rituals in Wedwordy to choose from!  However, if you choose to add something entirely custom, simply use the “open” passage at the end of the list under Unity Rituals. When you or your officiant has drafted a unique, custom passage, click “Select” and it will be added to your ceremony draft as a Unity Ritual. You can put this Unity Ritual Element anywhere within your ceremony sequence. (BTW, each of the Elements contains an “open” passage for writing or pasting in your own, totally custom wording!)

With the plum brandy ritual, Reverend Tan had said in his ceremony, “There is a saying that the best place to build a home is where the plum tree grows.  Certainly, in sharing plum brandy today, the best place to build a life together is where this couple now shares slivovica! (Three shot glasses are raised.) May your life together be rich and fruitful in blessings! Ziveli! (The couple and the officiant drink the slivovica.)

It was a beautiful, meaningful addition to the couple’s wedding ceremony script. Though the groom reassured his officiant that the plum brandy was really smooth, Reverend Tan reported that 140 proof slivovica burned going down!

Ziveli! To health and happiness!

Writing the Wedding Ceremony Script

a happy couple on their wedding day after writing their own custom ceremony with the Wedwordy App

For engaged couples with a wedding day on the horizon, planning a wedding spurs emotions that run from elation to exasperation. You might be one of those couples. And it’s OK to feel the wide range of crazy in the months leading to the big day. Fortunately, there are online resources that will help tilt the emotional pendulum towards happy, from vendor directories to website builders to planning tools. With Wedwordy, writing your wedding ceremony script will put you in wedding bliss, not wedding blues!

To appreciate how Wedwordy serves you, compare these other ways to writing the wedding ceremony script.

If your wedding is presided by clergy of your church, your script will most likely follow a set format that aligns with the tenets of your faith. If you opt for a civil ceremony, as in marrying at the courthouse, you will have a standard script that meets minimum official requirements. These two ways obviously present the least personalization.

If you hire a professional officiant, they may pull material from both online and written libraries, and include some information from you to create a customized script. If you tap a friend to officiate, they might pull from online samples and even write their own, or decide to wing it during your ceremony! With these two alternatives, you will get a more personalized ceremony. Some officiants however may charge quite a premium for their customized ceremonies, as much as $700 or more! And with friends, you might get more personal material being expressed in front of your guests than you would have wanted divulged!

You might decide to DIY the script entirely on your own. You’ll scour the Internet for wedding ideas, lists, samples, passages from blog posts. Then you’ll copy and paste them into a Google or Word doc, then you’ll scroll through your pasted pieces, delete some, edit in your names, and format the document so it has a consistent and legible look for your officiant. And when you think you’re done, you might feel anxious not knowing if it contains all the parts it ought to have.

Now let’s look at the Wedwordy way.

Wedwordy is a Web based application designed to make the script writing experience thoughtful, creative, personal, and convenient. Here’s a metaphor. It is like craving a savory sandwich and going to your favorite gourmet deli for it. Displayed for you are all the freshest ingredients that combine together oh so well. You’ll qualify your options based on whether you are vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, omnivore! You then select the buns, condiments, veggies, cheese, and meat for a complete, delectably tailored, mouth-watering sandwich. And if by chance you were also able to sprinkle in some custom spices, well, that would be Wedwordy!

Unlike a civil ceremony (eating a pre-packaged sandwich), or relying on a friend to write the ceremony (who knows where that sandwich came from?), or starting a ceremony from scratch (going up and down the aisles of a supermarket trying to figure out what goes into a sandwich), Wedwordy is the gourmet deli of wedding ceremony scripts! Wedwordy’s templates and ceremony elements offer just the right structure to confidently assemble a complete ceremony, and its fully editable passages give you infinite possibilities for total customization. Check out the Wedwordy app tutorial to see how you can compose your custom, complete wedding ceremony script effortlessly.

With the right online tools to prepare and plan, the right vendor team to execute your dream day, and the Wedwordy app to write a meaningful wedding ceremony script, you can aim for a savory and satisfying wedding celebration!

Elements of a Wedding Ceremony

The Exchange of Vows and the Giving of Rings are examples. Here is a list of sixteen, and their brief descriptions, given in (loosely) sequential ceremony order.

 

ANNOUNCEMENT

Do you want an “unplugged ceremony” or maybe just a reminder about cell phone etiquette? As the guests are settling in to their seats, have your officiant make an announcement. It’s also a good opportunity to test amplification.

PROCESSIONAL

The entrance of the wedding party signals the beginning of the ceremony. Bridesmaids and groomsmen, parents, grandparents, godparents, sponsors, ring bearers, flower bearers, babies in wagons, pets – you decide the entrance order, it’s your (weddng) party!

GREETING

The officiant opens the celebration with introductions and welcomes. Nothing too wordy, just a warm and friendly embrace of family and friends and a thanks for joining the couple.

ESCORT’S SALUTATION

This is the age-old “giving away of the bride”. Many couples choose to include it, but if you prefer a modern take without the traditional connotations, the escort simply gets the honor of accompanying the honoree. Or don’t use it at all.

GRATITUDE RITUAL

You may want to acknowledge parents or other close member of the family with a gesture such as giving of a rose. This represents gratitude for modeling love, for the continued devotion and support of family.

THE COUPLE’S STORY

Sharing the story of how you became a couple is always a fun way to inject the ceremony with a bit of humor. A 2-3 minute story of the chance meeting, the embarrasing moment, the awkward silence, and how the romance blossomed enfolds the guests into your journey as a couple.

REFLECTIONS ON LOVE

What is love? What does commitment mean? Poignant words are given about love and devotion, marriage and commitment. Your officiant gets to be the esteemed counsel, passing on the wisdom of what makes a marriage endure and flourish.

POEMS & READINGS

Add a contemporary flair from famous works to reflect your love in poetic form, or those brilliant philosophical musings about how love is like a pebble or mushroom! If it resonates with you, include a reading or poem to give a literary edge to the ceremony. Maybe even ask a friend to read Shakespeare’s Sonnet #116.

SHOUT OUT

This is a fun, interactive moment when the officiant asks the gathered guests to respond with a loud “I WILL,” when asked if they will continue to support you throughout your marriage, to remain as a community of friends and family.

DECLARATION OF INTENT

Considered to be the most important and legally binding element in a ceremony, this is when the officiant asks the honorees to voluntarily and lucidly declare the intent to marry. Kinda important to know each of you freely choose to be married, and not coerced into it at knife point or royal decree, ala Game of Thrones.

EXCHANGE OF VOWS

Read your personal vows or repeate after the officiant, the exchange of vows are the promises you make to one another, to have and to hold, to honor and to cherish. Want to write your personal vows? Here’s how in Sassy to Sincere, Be You with Your Personal Vows.

GIVING OF RINGS

This ritual traditionally follows the exchange of vows to signify that the promises you made are now sealed. Its infinite circle symbolizes the endless promise of abiding love!

UNITY RITUALS

Cultural or faith based, you may choose to incorporate a unity ritual. Wedwordy has over 10 passages of unity rituals to select and add to your ceremony. Is it right for you? Read about it in Choosing a Meaningful Unity Ritual.

BLESSINGS & PRAYERS

Prayers from the Bible and a Buddhist sensei, blessings from Irish and native American cultures – these nod to your faith and beliefs, and honor family traditions. These passages may appear anywhere in your ceremony, and may even be given to a family member to read.

OFFICIANT’S CHARGE

The officiant gives a short message to the couple about going forth to married life, reminders and affirmations for the couple to ponder.

PRONOUNCEMENT

And finally, the wedding ceremony is concluded with the officiant pronouncing you as newlyweds, partners in life. You get to kiss – yay – count 1-kississippi, 2-kississippi, 3-kississippi in your head to give your photographer ample time to snap a photo and your guests to cheer!

 

Wedwordy makes ALL of these elements available to you in one place, one app. Wedwordy has several passages in each of these elements for you to select as written or edit as you wish. You may even write a completely new passage or paste your own treasured find. And you can omit, add, rearrange elements to fully customize your wedding ceremony script, completely.

Your Friend’s Primer to Officiating Like a Pro

A friend acting as an officiant to seal the union of a couple during their wedding ceremony

So you’ve tapped your friend or family member to officiate for your wedding. It would be an honor, certainly. And quite a responsibilty. Here is a a comprehensive guide for what it takes to be exceptional in this esteemed role. Consider three important components: Authority, Capability, and Eloquence. Think A-C-E.

 

AUTHORITY

Who Can Perform the Ceremony?

In the United States, those who can legally perform weddings are a county clerk, judge, justice of the peace, or an ordained minister/member of the clergy. Despite popular belief, ship captains are not officially recognized in the US as having the authority to perform a wedding.

How Can a Friend Perform a Ceremony?

A  friend or family member must be ordained for the purpose of serving as an officiant. Also, make sure to check on your local government’s requirements. A multi-denominational organization such as the Universal Life Church makes it easy to become ordained online – just tell your honored officiant to go the ULC website and follow the prompts. Celebrities such as Lady Gaga and The Rock have done it! Imagine, Reverend Rock…

What Are My Officiant’s Official Duties?

The two main responsibilities of the officiant are performing the wedding ceremony and completing the marriage license paperwork.

 

CAPABILITY

What Qualities Should My Officiant Possess?

Whether you choose a professional or a friend, your officiant should possess qualities that make him or her the perfect fit for your wedding. Of course, “perfect fit’ is very subjective. Yet, it is worthwhile mentioning that exceptional officiants will possess the following qualities: dependable, enthusiastic, genuine, compassionate, and confident.  

What Skills Make My Officiant Up to the Task?

Less subjective is the skill set of exceptional officiants. The task should be approached like a job – not in the sense of drudgery, rather with a sense of integrity. To successfully fulfill the duties that come with this job, the officiant should be quite proficient with these skills: timely communication, organization, initiative, problem-solving, and creative thinking.

 

ELOQUENCE

What about Eloquence?

Eloquence is described as “fluency and power to stir emotions.” A wedding ceremony seems like a good place to practice such moving speech! Your officiant’s goal may not be to rally troops to battle, persuade a jury, or secure a sale, but, in a wedding, the words your officiant delivers should be heartfelt, to have authority and impact, to move people.

How Can My Officiant Prepare?

Before the wedding day, have your officiant PRACTICE the script. Remind your officiant to do the following in preparation for the big day:

  1. Say the words out loud, project your voice.
  2. Note what words and phrases need emphasis.
  3. Get an understanding of the general tone of the script.
  4. Visualize standing in position and be poised.
  5. Make eye contact.
  6. Deliver the words in a measured, but natural pace.
  7. Speak from the chest and throat, not the teeth.
  8. Be sincere, funny, whatever matches the narrative.

Is It OK for My Officiant to GO Off Script?

The officiant is speaking on your behalf, representing you! You were thoughtful in composing your ceremony words with Wedwordy, choosing passages carefully and intentionally. We recommend staying ON script. A professional officiant can deftly handle the occasional ad lib when appropriate, but especially for novice speakers, the script provides a level of security. Avoid the embarrassment of an inappropriate story or joke by your officiant friend: remind them to stay on script, that the wedding day is your day, not open mic night at a comedy club!

 

Here is a link to The Officiant’s Checklist by Wedwordy, containing 30 tasks and reminders from pre-wedding to post-wedding. A special shout out to Tan Weddings & Events for their expertise with this blog post. They have professionally presided over a thousand weddings!

Choosing a Meaningful Unity Ritual

A couple during their wedding ceremony engaging in a unity ritua

Your declaration of intent, exchange of vows, and giving of rings are the heart of the wedding ceremony. So why choose to add a unity ritual? Consider your faith, culture, and personal/couple preferences when deciding to incorporate one, or not.

The minimum requirement of the ceremony to be “official” is the declaration of intent – legally, both parties have to freely and willingly express their intent, the “I do!” From there, traditionally, the promises you make to one another, and the giving of rings mark the agreement as sealed. Though the wedding is centered on the two of you, it is also an event witnessed by a gathering of family, friends, and your community of people. With that said, other elements in a wedding ceremony that honor their presence or bow to your heritage are also significanct, namely a unity ritual.

Unity rituals are expressions of, well, unity. Lighting of the unity candle, mixing of sand, planting a sapling tree, tying a knot, fastening of the cord, to name a few. Each are rooted in faith or culture. For instance, the veil and cord are popular among Filipino and Latino cultures. The veil symbolizes the woven fabric of heaven and earth, protecting the newlyweds in God’s graces and their mutual support. The cord symbolizes infinity, strands braided from the faith, hope, and dreams of the community.

Engaged couples often consider adding a unity ritual as a way to honor their faith or cultural backgrounds. As more marriages are being performed outside of a church, couples who grew up in strict religious households often find themselves referencing their faith with an abridged version of rituals. Others are pulled by strong cultural ties, while others still are simply excited about the novelty of a particular unity ritual. Whatever the motivation, the most important question to ask yourself is: How is it meaningful to me and to my partner?

All the words of the wedding ceremony are what will take you from the day of your wedding into the joyful lifetime of marriage. You want the words to represent you, your beliefs, your ideals, your commitment and love. So consider a unity ritual for its faith, social, and cultural significance, and then decide to include it when your heart says it is meaningful to YOU.

________________________________________________________________________________

The Unity Rituals Element is available in Wedwordy, where there are 10 different passages to choose from. The passages include beautiful wording of instruction and symbolism to make it flow seamlessly in your wedding ceremony. They are fully editable, so refine the words, or write/add your own meaningful gesture of unity.

Sassy to Sincere , Be You with Your Personal Vows

A bride crying as her groom reads his personal wedding vows

Exchanging vows in your wedding ceremony represents the spoken promises of your commitment to one another. But, if the traditional “for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health” do not reflect the promises you want to make to your partner, opt to write your own personal vows. Exciting, yet scary! Here is how to overcome those initial fears and build the confidence to share your promises with authenticity, valor, and eloquence!

The three challenges of personal vows are: 1) being authentic in your feelings, 2) writing with some literary merit, and 3) speaking eloquently publicly. Hopefully, that did not scare you away and make you decide to default back to traditional vows! If you are determined to continue on, here are some encouraging words and guidelines to help you with your personal vows.

Being authentic in your feelings is the reason you want to do personal vows in the first place! So regard the endeavor not as a challenging hurdle, rather as a refreshing shot to be YOU, to express the excitement you have of your partner. Using whatever medium is best for you to take notes, jot down answers to the following prompts (let it flow, don’t be shy, refrain from editing – for now):

  1. What attracted you to your partner?
  2. What qualities do you admire and adore in your partner? Give examples.
  3. Write down a memorable moment or two – funny, goofy, mind-blowing, serious – that the two of you shared while dating.
  4. What made you fall in love with your partner?
  5. In your vision of married life, what do you see the two of you doing 5 years from the wedding? 25 years?

Your answers, if you were honest with yourself, represent YOU! What you have are the genuine feelings you have of your partner, AND some useful material for your personal vows! Now, make a list of your vows and promises. Again, do not edit at this stage. Do not hold back! Begin each with “I promise to” or “I vow to”.  It can be as corny as, “I promise to be the Belle to your Beast,” or sassy like, “I vow to always root for your team, even though I don’t think they stand a chance,” or sincere, “I promise that I will always love you, care for you, champion you as my dearest friend and partner.”

Writing with some literary merit sounds a bit too proper and stodgy, especially if you say it with a British accent! Don’t worry, your high school English teacher will not be grading your written personal vows, unless your sweetheart is a high school English teacher! Even then, be unfazed with the writing step. Do you recall some lesson from school about writing a paragraph? It was something about organizing sentences this way: the first a hook, the second states your topic, the next 2-3 present evidence, and the last sums it up. Writing your personal vows follows a similar structure.

Organize your responses to the above prompts like this:

  1. The “hook”: retell your memorable couple moment, perhaps your first meeting or first date
  2. The “topic”: state why you love your partner and share what you admire in this person
  3. The “evidence”: here, list your vows and promises
  4. The “summary”: end with a final statement of your adoration and what you look forward to in marriage.

The number of sentences, of course, does not matter. And grammar, spelling, and punctuation are not the priority here. Follow some level of organization, such as suggested with the paragraph structure, though you have total and complete freedom to do it your way! Use your notes above. Make a draft. And another. Revise, refine it – but don’t get hung up on aiming for a Pulitzer prize-winning composition. Write it in a style and voice that suit you best. This is what makes the personal vows authentic and genuine.

Speaking eloquently publicly is the last challenge of choosing personal vows. Some people become super nervous when speaking in front of crowds while others thrive on being the center of attention! Some break into gibberish while others are natural story-tellers. No worries. Sharing your personal vows at your wedding is different from being on stage, at a podium, or in the spotlight.

You are not addressing an audience, you are speaking to ONLY ONE person in that moment: YOUR PARTNER. Well, there just happens to be seated folks nearby! But you know what? Those folks are not there to judge nor to grade your performance, they are actually doing the opposite: they are sending you positive energy, love and support. They are there to relish the sound of your voice and give you strength as you profess your love.  Give yourself ample time to practice your personal vows in private. Time your recitation, aim for somewhere around 1 – 3 minutes. Edit your writing if you need to. Practice your soliloquy in a volume and speed you will use at the wedding venue.

Print your personal vows or write in a vow booklet. When the wedding day arrives, don’t forget it back at home or your hotel room, else you’ll be winging it! Prior to the start of the ceremony, you may want to hand your vows to your officiant to have ready in a binder to give back to you for the exchange of vows. And when in the ceremony it is time to express your eternal promises, take a deep breath, have your hankie ready, and just be YOU.

(A little caveat from Tan Weddings & Events, officiants who have performed over 1000+ weddings: personal vows are not private vows, meaning, your friends and family on both sides are present to hear every word you say. Though you may be sassy by nature, avoid the path of full-blown sarcasm! You know, like, “I really hate how messy you are, but, what the heck, I promise to pick up after you!” And being sincere does not mean seriously depressing, like, “We’ve seen our fair share of arguments over the years and I gave up on you once or twice, but so glad we’re best friends now.” Keep those comments private between you and yours. Your wedding day is a celebration!)

 


In composing your wedding ceremony with Wedwordy, in the element Exchange of Vows, choose the passage “Sharing Personal Vows.” You can also choose several other passages of traditional or contemporary vows prompted by your officiant – we got your back!
