Whats the difference between a Religious & symbolic wedding?

Recommended Posts

A Religious ceremony would be a ceremony that demonstrates your religious beliefs (Catholic, Jewish, Christian ect) A symbolic ceremony is non-religious and can be written by the bride and groom if they choose. Does that make sense? My FI and I are spiritual not religious and are having a symolic ceremony that fits our beliefs :)

Hello Natashak,


Regarding your question, the answers are quite simple:


A Religious Wedding is a ceremony that is based mainly in your religion. It is a ceremony where prayers and scripture readings can be combined. But it is a no time a mass service.


A symbolic wedding, is one where no religion is taken into consideration. Rather, it is a ceremony where poems or songs can be mixed along. This type of ceremonies are usually closer to a regular civil wedding.


Hopefully this explanation can answer your question.


For either wedding, always look for a non-denomination minister :)


Have a great day!
