Destination Wedding Order of Events for Ceremony!

If your ceremony is Legal or Religious, the order of the events will be similar, here is a guide for you:

Seating your guests: after your professional photographer takes the shoots for the ceremony, your Wedding Designer at should be asking your guests to have their seats and wait for the event to start

The Processional: here is when you and your bridal party will walk down the aisle. You can incorporate here yours and his parents. Have a special song for them and your preferred one for you!

Welcome and opening: the officiant will say few welcome words and most of the times start as “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today….” after that, the officiant emphasize the significance of the vows you’re about to exchange. This may also include a reminder of your duties and roles in marriage.

The Exchange of Vows: your vows are your promises to each other. You can write your own or the officiant will ask you to repeat after him/her “to have and to hold, for better or for worse…”

The Ring Exchange: the officiant will ask for your rings giving you an explanation of the meaning of the rings, then you typically say, “With this ring, I thee wed.”

The Pronouncement of Marriage: the officiant makes it official: “I now pronounce you husband and wife”.

The Kiss: Now your first kiss as a married couple!

The Closing Ceremony: Your officiant will say a few last words and, for a religious wedding, a blessing.

The Recessional: the reverse of the processional, you exit the ceremony together as husband and wife, followed by the wedding party.
