Can I get married in both a religious and civil ceremony?
My fiance is muslim and I am catholic, we want to respect the mother and have a 'Katb al kitab' but this happens on a different day to the reception. On the day of the reception we want to have a civil ceremony, please help. Need some advice. Thank you
can we still get married?
Hi, we got married in a china registry 2 years ago and now planning our Australian wedding this January, but have heard we cannot actually get married twice.
is this correct and could we still get married anyway.....or just allowed to have a fake ceremony/register?
can i ask my celebrant to mention marriage equality during the ceremony?
I'm still looking for one- but this is really important to me
how can we make a mention of same-sex couples and marriage equality in our civil ceremony?
we're not gay ourselves, but our dear friends are and we were wondering if celebrants would be open to making a special mention of it during our ceremony
how am i supposed to keep my surprise wedding a surprise when a celebrant rocks up?
I haven't found a celebrant yet that is able to blend in..
When meeting with a celebrant am I supposed to know what readings I want already?
or do they usually offer suggestions and examples at the meeting? Is there anything else my partner and I should decide on first?
How does one handle someone bringing a baby to a kids-free wedding?
I didn't know what category to put this in, but my partner and I opted for a totally child-free wedding however we have a guest who has simply decided her grandchild ( a 23week baby) will be coming along - without asking anyone! The parents are invited to the wedding but only one set of grandparents. I know the other set is available to babysit (and would be delighted to) but the guest is simply insisting that the baby will just come along (and note - it's not the mother insisting, it's the grandmother). How do I have a conversation with her or at least my M-I-L (it's her cousin) to let her know that it is our wish NOT to have children attend - and there are other couples that are respecting these wishes! I think it's rude both to us and those guests that have respected our wish to simply assume that this is ok.
Do I have my future father in law walk me down the aisle?
Unsure what category to put this under.
I don't speak to my family at all and have always said I want to walk down the aisle on my own. I've had pressure from my future mother in law and other extended members of my fiances family that I should have him. Comments like "surely you would have xxxx walk you".
He's a lovely man but there's a lot I disagree with his alcoholism and priorities and he has also made comments that he thinks I'll ask him.
What can I do? Advice? Please ??
Is it ok to use the same Celebrant that our friends used?
What are your thoughts on using the same celebrant that a friend used? Have you experienced this before?
How do I convince my fiancé to elope?
My finance has a huge family so our wedding is going to be too expensive. I only have a small family so my guests will be out numbered.
I think weddings are more about pleasing others and the meaning gets lost. I want it to be a special moment for just him and I, without the expensive price tag.
I want to elope but he wants the huge traditional wedding. What do we do?
