The Dos and Don’ts of Wedding Ceremonies – HGTV


[music playing] We had the most
boring, boring, I think everybody could think of. As far as the ceremony
goes, we decided to get married at city
hall, because we’re both non-religious. I knew where I was
going to get married much more than I knew who I
was going to get married to. I remember sitting in
that field thinking, I wonder who I’m going
to marry in this field. Yes. And it was you. Even if it wasn’t necessarily
like a church exactly, we definitely
wanted to have sort of a religious and reverence. I guess it was kind
of semi-traditional. We did do like the
walking down the aisle. We did jump over the broom. People put so much
time, money, and energy into planning their reception,
when really, it’s the ceremony, it’s those I dos
that really count. During the height of it, my
dad really wanted me to arrive to the ceremony on a horse. I don’t know where
that came from. Our families definitely
had some opinions on where we should get married. We both have very strong moms. I grew up Methodist,
and he grew up Catholic and converted to Judaism. So you’re trying to fit
in all these pieces. It is impossible to
make everybody happy when you’re planning your wedding. And that’s OK. This day is really
about the two of you. Be respectful towards your
families, take their ideas, have an open-mind,
but ultimately, make decisions based
on what’s right for you and your soon-to-be. One way to make
both families happy is to have two officiants. One representing each religion
can be a little more expensive, but usually, it’s a great way
to make everyone feel included. We looked at a lot of venues
that it’s just a place, it’s just a locale. But then you have to
fill it with the chairs and the tables, which just
created more decisions. And that was not what
we were looking for. Choose places that are
innately beautiful– a beach, a gorgeous garden,
an ornate church, something that can stand alone
without any additional decor. The particular
venue that we had, it had gorgeous light panoramic
views of their outdoor garden. Yes, it was beautiful. So it was sort of like
a built-in backdrop. So we really didn’t have
to decorate the altar. There are so many
really cool, really inexpensive places that you
can tie the knot these days. We thought we were
picking like this sort of hippie, secluded field. And we didn’t realize that
like a mile down the road, it was a hotel which owned it
and which we then had to plan our whole wedding through. Ceremony venues
actually book up just like any other reception venue. And so it’s important
to look ahead. You also want to look at off
days and off-peak seasons, because you’ll find a
lot more availability during those times of the year. Unless you’re dead
set on getting married in your family’s church,
having it at the same venue will save you a lot of money. And also, it’s a more seamless
experience for your guests.
