Riffing off of Humarock’s post on reception length, I’m wondering how long your ceremony will be? I’m a big fan of short and sweet, but also want our ceremony to have meaning. So how long is/was your ceremony? And what did you include?

We are aiming right for 30 minutes. Enough to make it the most important part of the day, but not too long to bore people who are just ready to celebrate!

We are trying for 30-40 minutes. Not sure what we will include but I hope to have a few good friends do readings and a short sermon. I want it to be short but not gone in a flash.

I assume ours will be somewhere around 30 minutes. I’m a fan of keeping it short and sweet and getting to the reception so that we can really celebrate.

Our ceremony ran about 20 minutes, and that was with an extra cultural tradition thrown in too!

I’m hoping our ceremony will be 20-30 minutes. I’m not good at standing in place for a long time. I’m too fidgity.

It may run a little over 30 when you count the Mothers, etc. going down the aisle – but not much more.

Our ceremony was about 20 mins and that included our lei exchange ceremony. We wanted to keep it as short as possible.

We’re having a full Catholic mass, so it will probably be about an hour.

40-45 minutes. Even though I love to party, I’m not a fan of "getting the ceremony over with" to hurry up and party as I believe the ceremony is sacred – that’s when the marriage moment takes place.

20-30 mintues. We don’t want to run up there and run back. But we don’t want it to be too long.

Haven’t really thought about it, but it will probably end up around 30 minutes-if that. The ceremony is the part that stresses out Fiance the most, he’s very shy, so the shorter the better!

mine will be about 25 minutes with communion for 100, but we are ONLY doing special music during communion to save time & not doing a unity candle, etc

20 minutes, at least that’s what the rabbi said. Short and sweet!

We are hoping ours will be 20-30 mins. Having it be non-denominational (a friend of ours is officiating for us) we were a little concerned it would be too short- we one of our firends is going to sing and we will have two short readings.
