@FoolsintheRain:   i am not married yet, but we will be signing our civil marriage license with the rabbi right before the ceremony, along with signing our ketubbah (jewish marriage contract)

this is a jewish wedding.

What kind of religious officiant are you being married by? It seems to be more common for the vows/rings/kiss to be right at the end in a secular ceremony, most Christian ceremonies I’ve been to it has been more near the middle.

I’m pretty sure, not entirely positive, that in Ontario you can’t technically sign the license until AFTER you say certain parts of your vows. That’s why usually in the ceremony it comes after the vows. Just as an added FYI there are certain things and certain language that must be used in the ceremony for it to technically be legal too… The biggest part is “lawfully wedded wife/husband/partner”.

Our officiant is a United minister, although he’s performing a civil ceremony, the signing of the license is at the very end of the ceremony right before he presents us to our guests as “husband and wife”.
