How Long Should the Ceremony Last?

Marriages are supposed to last a lifetime; most people who marry agree on that. However, how long should the ceremony last?

So many people want to imitate the fashion and style of a royal wedding, but there is no real interest in duplicating the length of such a ceremony! When determining the proper length for your ceremony, several things could be considered:

1. The passage of time can be very subjective. We have all experienced a brief time that seemed like an eternity and, alternatively, a short moment that seemed like an eternity. A competant officiant and ceremony planner can ensure an orderly flow to your ceremony.
2. Your ceremony should be long enough to include all the elements important to you. Obviously, a 20 minute ceremony is able to include more elements than a 2 minute one.
3. One way to help with the subjective flow of time is the appropriate use of humor and personalizing elements. If the wedding is truly a joyful celebration, guests not only don’t mind staying… they will be reluctant to leave!

Good officiants, musicians, planners can help you achieve the wedding of your dreams.
