Reading during the ceremony
Allaura, on October 31, 2022 at 12:17 PM

So where did everyone get their readings from? We aren’t religious so no bible verses or anything like that. Any ideas or help would be awesome!

Would you consider 50 people for the ceremony and reception a good number? Intimate? Thoughts?

How Young Is Too Young For Flower Girl/Ring Bearer?
Lisa, on November 14, 2020 at 7:34 PM

What is the "minimum age" for a flower girl and/or ring bearer? Is 2 too young? How old were your flower girls and ring bearers?

Procession order
Lala, on November 19, 2022 at 1:55 PM

Hello! Me and FH are opting not to have a wedding party- including no flower girl , ring barrier, etc. So my question is who walks down the aisle at that point? Just the parents and grandparents?

Leslie, on November 18, 2022 at 1:58 AM

For your wedding ceremony did you guys keep the unity item in the front the whole time or did someone bring it to the front once the time came?

Vows in private or ceremony?
Kristen, on September 18, 2022 at 2:27 PM
