Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Lynton Round Wedding Excellence offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.


what song would you recommend to walk down the aisle to?

There are three considerations here

1. The length of the walk; is the piece just for the bride or is it to also include bridesmaids as well? Two songs could be played here, especially if the aisle is a very long one.

2. Will it be played live or off a cd/mp3/ipad/ipod

3. Does it have a special meaning for the bride and groom. (it was playing when/where they met.)

There is not a correct song; it is your wedding so choose one that is appropriate to you

what to do if the celebrant reads the wrong reading/gets your name wrong?

:O

What you have described should not happen. Always seek to be given repeated access to the draft ceremony; sign it off at the rehearsal and raise the issue of names at the rehearsal if you have any nerves about this. Under the code of conduct you have the right to lodge a formal complaint with the Attorney General/Marriage Celebrants Department

I'm looking into booking a celebrant, but I don't understand the difference between ceremony types?

Some provide a "full personalised" ceremony, and others a basic package, what's the biggest difference there? I thought all ceremonies had to be pretty much the same, ie: "Do you ___ take ___ to be your lawfully wedded wife". Please explain how there's such a big difference in price and services? :)

A basic ceremony is exactly that. It fulfills the legal requirements. The elements of the basic wedding can have choices in it.

I meet with the couple as many times as they wish and give them a large range of examples of what could be in their ceremony. I also explain the legal parts which must be included The bride and groom can make the choices. Just as clothing stores offer different types of clothes and prices, celebrants offer different types of ceremonies and prices.

As a celebrant with over 20 years of experience my advice is that you meet with a variety of celebrants and make a selection that suits your own wishes and your budget.

I have an issue with someone posting pics of us before we do on social media...

How do we make it known to our guests?

Hello: Congratulations upon your wedding. It is a special day which belongs to you. I talk about this with the bride and groom well before the day and check again at the rehearsal. Very often I tell the guests just before the ceremony commences that "As a courtesy to bride and groom and at their request, please do not put anything on social media until they have done so themselves. Your co-operation will be greatly appreciated by them." You are not being difficult; it is your wedding. Have a most memorable and special day. Lynton Round of Wedding Excellence.

Help! I need vows help, I honestly have no idea what to say! I love her. What else should I say?

I asked my friends and they said it'd come to me. It hasn't. I am freaking out!!!

Melissa; from over 20 years as a celebrant, the memorable vows I have heard exchanged describe the feelings that couples have for each other and why they want to marry each other. They have been very serious right through to hilariously funny but they are what the couples have wanted to share. Don't try to be humerous or funny just because you think you have to; if that is not you don't try to be somebody else; your finance is marrying you not "someone you think you have to be." Too long is far worse than too short. You could talk about the qualities you believe your partner has and what you will do to compliment them. Once you have prepared them, get a close trusted friend whose feedback you are confident about, to listen to them.

What is everyones thoughts on +1s at a wedding??

We are already on a tight budget and originally i had just said family only... but when planning out our tables my fiancé and my mother asked where the partners of our bridal party are and where family members partners were sitting and i said they weren't invited and they both looked shocked like you can't not invite your bestfriends partner to your wedding...in my head i say why not? Its my wedding, i dont like her partner and i don't want them there... is it terrible for me not to invite them?

It is the wedding of you and your fiance. You both have to own the decision and the impact of that decision. There is not a right or wrong answer. It is what on balacne you both think is appropiate.

How long would I require a celebrant for?

Generally, when couples book a celebrant how long do they book them for?

Hello Lucy,

ON the day of your wedding you could expect your celebrant ti be at the venue for about an hour depending upon the length of the ceremony.

From my experience making preparations for the ceremony including a rehearsal could take between three and seven occasions.

Cheers

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?

Hello Kate, You have the same name as our daughter! It is most certainly suitable to use the same celebrant but in the end you have to be comfortable that this person best suits what you are looking for because your wedding is your wedding not your friends. I have conducted many weddings in the manner and am very honoured to be chosen because others have seen me "at work" and felt very comfortable with what they have seen/heard. Best regards Lynton Round Wedding Excellence
