Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Sally Howard Civil Celebrant offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

is there an extra charge to have a rehearsal?

No way!  I wouldn't feel comfortable going into your ceremony without a run through and the knowledge the everyone is happy with their roles. Your rehehearsal is a part of the whole package! It's also a great time to get together and really see what's going to happen on your day..... we see things in a different light....  sometimes magic happens

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

Making mention of your own personal beliefs wth regard to marriage equality is simple to do and most celebrants will include them within a ceremony. It can be as simple as inserting a few words after the Monitum, such as:

"However, (your names) would like to express that they believe the right to get married should be determined by love, not by a person’s gender or sexual orientation, and that they look forward to the day when this is also reflected in the law."

We can get as creative as you like!

Can I request my celebrant to wear a certain colour or outfit?

I've seen some awful clashing outfits and celebrants in white etc... is it rude to ask them to wear a particular colour or style? I don't know if I'm taking it way too far haha. But I want everything to look good! It is my wedding day, after all :)

Of course you can ask! I always make sure I blend nicely with the bridal party (complementing rather than appearing to be a part of it) and would NEVER wear white! I want people focussing on YOU. If you have certain ideas about how you'd like me to appear then hit me with them! It's YOUR day...... remember that!

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!!!

Congratulations on your engagement! Many people stress over wedding vows but you don't have to. Vows are highly personal. You love your partner. What does that mean to you? What are the little things that make you happy? What are the things that only you share? All wedding vows must contain the legal component "I call upon the people here present to witness that I (your name) take you (your partner's name) to be my lawful wedded (husband / wife). Beyond this they can be whatever you want. As you are speaking your vows looking into the eyes of the person you love it's hard to go wrong! Please email me if you would like further examples. :-)
