How long was your ceremony?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to put together our ceremony and was wondering about how long was your cermony. I don't want to make it too long or too short.

I think all in all, our ceremony was about 20 minutes. I would try to keep you ceremony under a half hour.


I wrote out our whole ceremony, and while I was doing it, I was afraid it would be too short, but I didn't really know what to add. However, it took longer to go through it when we were actually doing it than when I was reading it at home.


It takes a few minutes for you and your bridal party to walk down the aisle (if you have a bridal party). If you do the sand ceremony or unity candle, that takes a little bit of time as well. Signing the marriage license also took time, and I never considered that before we got there.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
