My husband and I got legally married in a private ceremony during quarantine and are now planning our more traditional "wedding" for our friends and families, etc.
Mostly, planning is going pretty much as you'd expect, but I'm curious to hear from others who were already married for their public "wedding", or just peoples' opinions on some topics:
1. ) We're thinking of referring to it as "Celebration of Marriage" instead of "Wedding" (for example on the invites). Does that seem appropriate? or confusing?
2. ) For the ceremony text, we're unsure how to change it to fit our situation. We definitely want to write our own vows (since our original ones were generic), but some other standard parts don't really make sense. We're also not super religious, so I'm at a loss what the ceremony could actually include.
Any other thoughts?
I hope this post will inspire discussion since I imagine others may be in a similar place or have at least thought about this kind of thing before now.
