Pretty and Planned

You learn new lessons every week. Usually I write this blog in Word then copy it to the blog for final tweaks.  This week I decided to write it on the blog....big mistake.  I got most of it written and hit the wrong button and like magic it disappeared.

Last week I talked about the Short and Sweet wedding option for those folks who are looking for something quick and simple. This week I want to talk about the Pretty and Planned option. 

Before I get into that in more detail I want to say that the Short and Sweet wedding is pretty too. When we set up Remembrance Weddings we made it our mission to provide our clients with a ceremony that is Beautiful....Meaningful....and Memorable. For a long time we only provided a full service wedding. But as we got more experience we learned how to fulfill our mission for you in a shorter service.

As we stated last week the Short and Sweet wedding is prewritten with limited options. If you tell us you want a non religious wedding with a ring exchange you'll get a pretty, meaningful and memorable wedding between 7-10 minutes long. It will be the same wedding that the last couple who chose a non religious wedding with a ring exchange. It is a far nicer wedding that you will get at the courthouse...but it is not custom written for you.

In the Pretty and Planned wedding option we work together to plan each step in your wedding. Whether you have a vision of what you have in mind for your wedding ceremony or don't have a clue as to what you want, you'll benefit from my 20 years experience of marrying couples and seeing what works and what doesn't.

Your wedding ends up reflecting who you are and what you want family and guests to take away from your special day. Although we are concentrating here on the actual ceremony we often provide couples with insights on photography, wedding venues, gifts and a whole lot more.

We cover the basics with all their options about: The Procession....Who stands where?.... Is the bride to be "given away?.....Ring Bearers and flower girls (animals?); Tone of service, types of vows, Possible rituals to add. Types of readings, and all of the basic things. We also cover types of things you might not get elsewhere like multi-celebrant ceremonies, video streaming, translators and a whole lot more.

Usually we can do this in about a half hour and the majority of couples do it by phone. If you want to see I don't have a third eye in the middle of my forehead I also do the planning by Skype.  I will meet with you in person if you prefer....but because it takes more of my time....this is an extra charge.

As always, if you have any questions or would like to talk with me about scheduling your special day please call me at 314-965-5648
