    It doesn’t seem too long too me!

    You said each part takes 15 minutes – but I don’t see it broken up into parts? The whole thing looks like it will take 15 min, yes?

    I actually voted to “too wordy” because that is the option that best fit what I think. For me, it is too much of you saying vows all in a row. I think you actually should add a reading or something between the handfasting and the ring exchange. Adding a reading (with a new reader) will change it up so it doesn’t get boring for the guests, and then when you and your groom stand up again, people will really pay attention to the ring ceremony.

    a reading doesn’t have to be religious. it could be a poem, thoughts on marriage, whatever you want it to be.

    I don’t think this ceremony is going to be more than half an hour long (including the processional and recessional), from the elements you’ve included.  I don’t think you have to worry about it being too long.  Do you have an officiant yet?  Have you discussed the ceremony with them?  They may have some suggestions and edits and give you a better idea of the length and timeline for the entire ceremony.

    Yeah, I agree with other posters, it’s not too long and could use the variety of readings
