    I have not been able to reach the interim wedding planner for SSJG via email (after not getting return emails for about a month, I finally called and they told me she was no longer with them) so I want to ask you ladies about the order of service since I want to go on and print my programs up.

     

    This is what I have:

    Prelude

    Entrance of the Officiate

    Entrance of Groom, Best Man & Woman (my fiance will have his son AND his adult daughter as best man and best woman. LOL)

    Bridal Processional

    Greetings & Opening Remarks

    Presentation of the Bride

    Hand Ceremony

    Exchange of Vows and Rings

    Sand Ceremony

    Closing Prayer

    Declaration of Marriage

    Recessional

     

    I have the script for the entire ceremony written out but I want to make sure it is supposed to go this way. (when I was dealing with the previous wedding coordinator, I asked her if I needed to send it to the officiant ahead of time so he can read over it and won't be stumbling, she said 'no worries.")

     

    My fiance is trying to coordinate the music playlist and I have a question about the last part of the ceremony. Where the "Declaration of Marriage" is, once the officiant pronounces us man and wife, in the traditional Jamaica ceremony, don't we have to sit at the little table they have set up and sign papers before we can walk back down the aisle as man and wife? My fiance is taking the music very seriously and wants to have the perfect song, (gotta love him!) so I am thinking that instead of cueing up the song that will play when we walk down the aisle, after the declaration of marriage, there may be soft music while we sign the papers.

     

    Now once we sign the papers, what does the officiant normally say to signal that we do the recessional?

     

    Sorry for all the questions, but it is really a pain that the WC is not responding now and before I go on and print all the programs up, I want to make sure we can execute the ceremony as I have it planned.

     

    Thanks in advance ladies!

      Did they tell you who the new WC is?  I was confused about this also.  I watered the ceremony program down so I could leave some things to interpretation. Just in case the minister does something that I wasn't expecting.  Have they told you who the new WC is?  They can probably just do it the way that you wrote in the program.


      Its done.....you can read my planning journal or the review...long over due.

        I spoke with Vinetta who told me that she works inbooking but she and Shanieka were filling in in the wedding department.

         

        Are you all ready to go? Are you getting married in the gazebo or on the beach?

           I'm getting married at the sister resort in MoBay. Either way, we are getting married at the gazebo.  Congrats!
