We are having a small Orthodox ceremony (parents, grandparents, siblings) in my fiance's home church. I'm new to Orthodoxy since meeting him, so the religious ceremony isn't as big a deal to me, its mostly for his family. Its a fairly short ceremony, including a lot of sung scriptures, wearing crowns, and walking in circles around the altar. The don't however exchange vows...
My question is: Would it be weird to say our vows at the reception? or maybe have a small ceremony at the reception in addition to the religious ceremony?
Or should we just do our vows in private, and keep the reception as just a reception?
