In response to often being asked, 'Where do I begin when planning a wedding?' – I've prepared this handy, go-to list of important ceremony and reception questions so that you can feel rest assured you've got everything covered! It's a good idea to work through these discussion points before you meet with your Celebrant and MC.
What pre- announcements would you like to make to your guests
What is your processional song going to be?
Who would you like to walk down the aisle with you?
Positioning of bridal party as you walk down the aisle and at ceremony site?
Involvement of guests and/or family in the ceremony?
Telling your story what would you like to share with your guests?
Vows – write in secret or together? / Follow a set format or personalise your vows?
Music for the signing and ceremony conclusion.
What announcements would you like to make to your guests?
Group photos? Make sure you have a list and utilise your MC to lead this.
Entrance music to reception area?
Order of speakers for the evening and what part of the evening you might like them to speak? / Pre-dinner, post dinner – a mix?
Speech intros – think of some great ways to introduce your speakers for the evening.
