We actually had to sign ours the night before the wedding so we have no pictures of it and we did it separately. Laying your bouquet on the table would make for great pictures though!

We signed ours at the courthouse 2 days before the wedding.

I’ve never seen a wedding where they signed it as part of the ceremony. The one wedding where I was Maid/Matron of Honor, we signed it on a random table at the reception.

Hmm, that could be. Any other Canadians out there? I’m curious now!

Hmm, I’ve never heard of this, maybe it is a Canadian thing?

We got so wrapped up we almost forgot to sign ours! We were just going to do it after the ceremony, but forgot. Thankfully our pastor remembered on his way home and turned around hehe. We just did it at the table with our programs and guest book, but adding your bouquet sounds pretty.

I’d guess it took us less than a minute to do though – the 2 of us signed it, our pastor, and our 2 witnesses (even though their signatures weren’t really required in our state). If you plan to do it during the ceremony maybe you can cut your song down to a minute or so?

I have to decorate the table?  Aw, crap- one more thing to worry about!

We are having a Ketubah, so we will most likely be having pictures taken of us signing it.  I didn’t even think about having the table decorated.  Why not just lay your bouquet on the table?  That + the nice white tablecloth would be a nice backdrop while keeping the camera focus on what is important.

We are going to have the small table draped with a black table cloth, and one of our centrepiece lanterns on one corner of the table, I will lay my bouquet on the other corner. I was going to have a draped overlay, but the ceremony is on a balcony, so I am afraid the nicely draped overlay will blow away!
