70% of ceremonies are 30 minutes or less. How long will your ceremony be? Over or under 30 minutes?

    Under, just about 20 min or so. Most Jewish ceremonies are short.

    I'm thinking under? But who knows? I don't know how long our vows will be yet since we're writing our own. And we all have some big entrances. Our bridal party & our entrances alone will take up 9-10 minutes.

    Well we are hoping it will be 30 minutes but I have a feeling the preacher will stretch it out closer to 45 minutes

    I have no clue. We haven't discussed it with our officiant yet, which is when I assume we will find out. I'd like to keep it as short as possible though, so hopefully we will be spot on average.

    I'm praying for 30 minutes, but FH is the one I'm worried about. He gets extremely wordy when he's talking, and even if he writes his vows down, I have a feeling he'll go off script.

    Probably under 30 minutes, but not by much.

    Under. I"m thinking more like 10-15. My FH has a bum knee and can't stand for long periods of time.
