The wedding ceremony — in an ideal world, this would have been one of the first things you would have planned for the big day, seeing as well… the wedding ceremony is kind of the main point of your wedding, right? However, if this is something you’re scrambling to plan a few weeks before the wedding day you’re not alone — after endless email exchanges with your caterer, coordinator and photographer, planning your ceremony might not have been high on your list of priorities!

Once you sit down to tackle wedding ceremony planning, you might find that there’s a lot more moving parts to the 30-minute ceremony than you might have anticipated. You’ll need to set up a rehearsal time, touch base with your officiant, find readers and ushers, write vows… and that’s all without even mentioning the decor and details! No need for panic though — as a bride who’s going through the exact same scenario, I found it was helpful to break down the event into a wedding ceremony planning checklist with sub-tasks and to-do’s to stay organized. With this cheat sheet, planning your ceremony will go from feeling insurmountable to being incredibly simple!
