I don’t get the hard on that people have for witnessing the solemnization.

Do you also have to witness me and DH having sex and be present at labor to confirm and celebrate my child’s coming into the world??

But I also come from a culture where private ceremonies are common, its common to invite (aka spread the word of the nuptials) at the larger feast after the ceremony. Usually only the couple, parents, immediate family witness the ceremony. Sometimes people get married like at courthouse and want to have a celebration afterwards. Its just weird that people get so hung up on actually witnessing the solemnization. Get someone to record it on video?
