Which wedding traditions can you skip at your wedding?

Whatever tradition or ritual which does not make you feel comfortable can be skipped

Can you go without a rehearsal with bridal party?

Is a runsheet enough to coordinate everyone on the big day or are rehearsals necessary? If so what is the best approach for this?

In ideal circumstances a rehearsal is very important for steadying nerves. For simpler more casual affairs a run sheet is ample

Are there any affordable celebrants out there for a simple ceremony?

Hi, I'm looking for a celebrant to perform a simple (yet still professional) wedding ceremony. I don't want all the usual song and dance or long storytelling - just a simple, sweet and short ceremony. And a streamlined process in the lead up with whatever legalities are required; no coaching, or coffee catch ups as I'm just not that kind of bride. Are there any celebrants out there that do this and are affordable? (Needs to be under $500) Thanks for your suggestions :)

Yes simple ceremonies can be had . 1 meeting then performing on the day. Seamless and streamlined ( and under $500 )

How can I help my celebrant to provide a personal and fun service?

What's the best way for me to help my celebrant to provide a personal and fun service?

The best way is to help is meet the celebrant. see how the chemistry burns. Check some of the ceremonies they have performed in the past. you will soon see if any humour jumps off the page. Timing and delivery you will work out at the first meeting. Allow each member of the couple to tell the celebrant the couples story from their perspective. The fun often lies in the differences.

How do I choose a celebrant that will suit my partner and I?

What is the best method for choosing the ideal celebrant?

The first meeting is paramount. This is where you as a couple get a "feel" for the celebrant and see whether you have similar values and sometimes more importantly a similar sense of humour. This is where you you develop a sense of trust. Do I trust this person with our story? Will I trust this person to tell our tale and what our marriage means to us? Can they engage and entertain our friends and loved ones on our most important day?
