Are you keeping your wedding ceremony short and sweet? Or are you savoring the significance with a longer service?

Will your wedding ceremony be longer or shorter side?

    Short, shouldn't be more than 15-20 minutes I believe.

    It's going to be longer than other ones I've been to. Probably about 30-45 minutes. The ceremony is very important to me. I plan on including readings and music.

    The shorter the better, no longer than 30 minutes, but I’d prefer closer to 15

    Short-ish. Around 20 to 30 minutes. We rather have a shorter wedding than a long one.

    I'd say about average. We don't expect it to be any longer than 30 mins.

    Short! like 15 minutes short. simple vows with us just saying "I do"....

    I don't even want a wedding, to be honest. I don't want to be the center of attention. I don't want people looking at me. Silly, I know, but I have stage fright! I've had to talk in public before and almost passed out. It was terrifying.

    Short. I wanted as short as possible but my photographer is saying at least 15 minutes to be able to get plenty of good pictures.

    It will be short compared to what my family is used to (Baptist vs. Catholic ceremony), but I don't want it to be super short.

    Short, it was about 20 minutes! I don't like long ceremonies as I feel like it gets boring for guests after awhile. It was the perfect length for us!

    Ours is a catholic wedding so it'll be about an hour. While this is a long ceremony, I wouldn't want a ceremony that is 15 minutes. I've been to a few of those and even as a guest, I thought it was too quick. But to each their own. I think 30 minutes is ideal.
