General Order of Ceremony

Your wedding ceremony can go for as little as 5 minutes to up to 45 minutes or so, depending on how much you want to include in your ceremony.  Most ceremonies will usually last between 20-30mins.  Your ceremony can become longer with the inclusion of readings or poems by a family member or friend.   I will work with you to develop a ceremony especially for the two of you. That said, there is a suggested general structure for a wedding ceremony as follows:
