Posted on March 13th, 2019 in Weddings by Gabe Fredericks

The big moment you have been waiting for is FINALLY here: your wedding ceremony!

Of all the details you have planned for your wedding day, the ceremony is arguably the most important. Regardless of the type of ceremony – indoor, outdoor, Jewish, Catholic, Interfaith, non-denominational – it is the time when you and your partner take vows to join your lives together forever. As this is such an important part of your big day, we compiled some of our top tips to give you a stress-free wedding ceremony that goes off without a hitch!

1. Run through the basics of the ceremony at least once

Even if you opt out of doing a formal rehearsal, it is such a good idea to run through the logistics of the ceremony at least once before the big day. This will ensure everyone in your wedding party knows what they should be doing, when. This can help to avoid any slip-ups!

2. Choose someone responsible to keep your wedding rings safe

Whether it is someone in your wedding party, a parent, or a good friend, choose someone responsible to bring the rings to the ceremony. You wouldn’t want them to get left behind or lost on the big day!

3. Add in buffer time to your schedule to arrive on time, if not early

There is nothing more stressful than being late, especially on your own wedding day! To avoid the unnecessary worry, add some buffer time into your wedding day timeline so that you can get to your ceremony on time, or even early. Additional time can also give you a few minutes to yourself before you walk down the aisle!

4. Include a program that outlines the ceremony and any special traditions your guests will experience

Wedding ceremony programs are totally optional, but they are a wonderful way to inform your guests about your ceremony and the wedding party as a whole. It is also a great reference for your guests if you are incorporating particular customs or traditions into your ceremony.


This is when you finally get to marry the love of your life in front of your family and closest friends, so take in every beautiful moment of your ceremony and enjoy it!
