Hey, here’s the moment everyone has been waiting for. Some things to think about:

LIGHTING

Ceremony lightg is extremely important and timing does matter. If you’re planning an noon outdoors ceremony during the summer, the light will be very harsh and you’ll likely be squinting in your photos. If you can, plan an outdoor ceremony 2 hours before sunset if you are having a first look. If you’re not interested in a first look, then think about holding your ceremony 3 hours before to sunset so there’s plenty light left for your portraits. The lower the sun, the more romantic the lighting can be.

If you’re rained out or planning to have an indoor ceremony, I suggest having EVEN lighting at your altar. Soft, even light across the entire altar will look much better than spotlights and make sure your wedding party can be seen.

ORDER OF SERVICE

There are limitless options on what you plan for your ceremony. From sand ceremonies to signing of the family Bible to washing each other’s feet, make sure you design your ceremony to be exactly what you two of you envision to be.

PROGRAMS + DETAILS

Something that can be really helpful to know is that not every guest needs a program. Printing just one per family group should suffice. Also be sure to have a friend a proofread the program before it goes to print and delegate handing them out.
