Ok, I want a short, sweet ceremony. 20-30 min tops. But I have NOOO idea, how/when things are suppose to happen. Who walks in first? When does the ring bearer come down the isle? I want to have an in-memory-of portion. does that happen after the officiant introduces us? The ceremony is not going to be in a church, so its not going to be super religious, and the reception will be in the same location. So after we say I do, where do we go? outside for a photo op, then return inside with the bridal party for the reception??

Our officiant gave us a sample non-demoninational ceremony, which helped get an idea of the basic structure. Then we researched other readings or wording for the sections. I definitely recommend talking to your officiant for some ideas. If you want, PM me and I can send you our ceremony rundown.

TO @jazzdhuereca: Most Wedding Ceremonies have some “common elements”… but they can differ based on Religion / Denomination
If you care to share that info… (OR alternatively… if you are planning a non-secular OR non-denominational celebration) we can probably give you some more realistic answers for your situation.
