    Aren’t the vows and rings together usually? I’ve never seen a sand ceremony before, but I would put it before the vows.

    i think its really beautiful! The only thing that caught me is in the sand ceremony. Are you alternating lines or both saying each one? I only ask bc the way its currently written, you say “i am yours” and he says “you are mine” which reads to me as possesive. i am sure it wont come off as such when spoken, but was literally the ONLY thing that caught me the slightest. But I think they’re lovely!

    It is so long.  Have you read it aloud to see what the timing will be like?

    @MsMadHatter:  Really????  Wow!  I haven’t even started thinking about ours yet, but it’s good to see that so much can be fit into a short amount of time.  It’s very sweet.


    Are you going to use microphones?

    @MsMadHatter:  I am so worried about having to use a microphone.  I have a serious phobia of them…like I get sweaty and shaky.  It’s awful.  But we might have to.  UGH.


    Or I can give everyone a script.  Like a play, lol.

    I like you ceremony it is very beautiful.

    That is an average length for a secular ceremony. Somewhere in the 10 to 15 minutes range with the Officiant doing most of the talking. Most of my ceremonies are 10 to 15 minutes some are closer to 25 minutes by the time we add readings and unity ceremonies. 

    As for the placement of the Sand Unity ceremony. Usually I place it inbetween the wedding vows and the ring vows. It give the idea of joining as a visible moment that the wedding guests can see the couple joining as one. However, every Officiant has their own style.

    Oh, about the microphone fear. It is normal and if you don’t think about the mic, and just focus on your future spouse it goes by very fast.
