We’ve picked the music, we’ve selected two of our three readings, and we just met with our officiant the other day. While we ostensibly met to discuss a basic ceremony outline, he also wanted to know more us as a couple so that he can write a meaningful ceremony for us. We’ll probably meet up with him at least one more time to write up an actual “script” for the thing.

@sarasouth:  Ha, I love that you just referred to your ceremony as “the thing.”

As for us, we’ve gotten a lot accomplished this week. I’ve completed my look (got my shoes yesterday and they’re more amazing than I could have even hoped for!), taken care of my “undergarments,” and we’ve both ordered our bridal party gifts.

I still have to: order our pies; make my sister get my “flowers” (we are doing glass roses from the Corning Museum of Glass for me, my bridesmaids, and to randomly set on the small tables); get our music list and iPod all ready; get our officiant registered and set the ceremony; make tags for our favors.

I think that’s it!

ETA: Apparently wedding brain has affected my reading comprehension. I only now notice this was a thread about the ceremony. Whatever, I’m excited!

We just finished our ceremony.  All the wording has to be submitted to the chapel a month before the wedding, so I’m dropping it off in the mail tomorrow.  Yay!! So excited to have that crossed off the list.  It’s been worrying me for a long time.

Chose the vows, the music, the accompanist, the readings & reader, and presented the list of special family members who have passed away that we are mentioning in remembrance..

We have one more pre-marital counseling session left with the pastor. Everything has fallen into place pretty nicely.

The only problem I have yet to discuss with the pastor doing the ceremony (different from the pre-marital pastor since we live out of state) is photography. For some reason, photos aren’t allowed during the ceremony but video IS. WTF? I suppose it’s because of the flash, annoyances, and it’s supposed to be a sacred moment. Which is fine. Since we can videotape it though, I need to corral someone into taping it. That’s it!

We haven’t started our ceremony stuff yet.  We meet with our officiant for the first time on Saturday.  So hopefully we’ll get moving on that.

I have my final appointment to finalize my transporation this Saturday, and then I am done with the BIG Stuff.  I start my pre-cana classes next week and am taking it all in and am very excited.  It is down to the wire…

We still need to meet with our officiant to go over the ceremony.  My Fiance and I still need to go over it one more time and then I can send it.  I bought the sand ceremony kit but I still need to get the sand.  I have not even looked at the songs!!  I only know what the first dance song will be.  Too much to do.  :

@twistxofxfate:  Yay, I finally found a date twin!

With 1 week out, I pick up my dress today, FW gets her tux on Monday. We will be picking up the other tuxes before we leave for Colorado. I still need to find an eyeshadow I like (DIY make up). I am getting my nails done this weekend and rehearsal dinner dress shopping with the FW tonight. It should be so much fun.

I am so excited!

I’ve been leaving the ceremony up to FH, and he’s been going back and forth with the minister and choir director. Now we just have to discuss some changes I’d like to make, get some advice from our minister on wording in one place, and I think we’re good to go. 🙂
