With a good wedding seating plan, your reception will run smoothly and your guests won't have the mad rush of grabbing seats next to their family and friends. For a great atmosphere, seat guests with other guests that they know. This is a celebration, not a networking event, so don't feel that you should be engineering new friendships through a clever seating plan. Guests will mingle and meet each other during the drinks reception, regardless of the seating plan. Place people where they will be happiest and where they will most enjoy their day.
While a civil wedding ceremony has a fairly standard format, there is plenty of scope within it to make it a personal statement of your love and commitment to each other.
Wedding Readings, Hymns and Vows
Your choice of wedding reading and hymns should be made with care. These are the words which are going to remind you of your wedding for the rest of your life. The list of wedding readings to choose from is endless. Whether you choose traditional wedding church readings or wedding poems, it is up to your and your groom. Wedding readings are a great way to get wedding guests involved in the wedding ceremony.
Your wedding hymns are a bit of light relief in your wedding ceremony. The hymns you choose should be fairly well known by guests so they can sing them lustfully and the ceremony will be full of life rather then slightly falling flat. Your wedding hymns don't need to all be sang by your guests. You could get one hymn sung by a choir, or it you have a good singer in the family, they could sing one of the wedding hymns as a solo.
Writing your own wedding vows is a highly personal part of your marriage and something that a lot of brides take very seriously. It is a moment in the wedding when all guys are on you, so proper preparation allows you to smile and enjoy saying your vows rather then dreading them for the whole wedding ceremony. When people think of bespoke wedding vows, they immediately think of long declarations of love, but the most successful bespoke wedding vows are the simple vows, which touch the hearts of your partner and all your guests.
