Should you have a private wedding ceremony or a big celebration or both?
I recently met a couple for a private wedding ceremony. Actually, it was a commitment ceremony. This awesome couple has been together for 29 years and they are planning their wedding and a big celebration in their hometown in Belgium. However, they came to Las Vegas and wanted to do something private, just the two of them. So they planned the commitment ceremony.
The ceremony was beautiful and they are so much in love. They exchanged vows and rings and committed to always being there for each other. They had a photographer for pictures and planned a romantic dinner, just the two of them.
This is the second private ceremony I have done recently and it got me thinking. Many girls dream of their wedding day with a big white dress and all of their family and friends. They spend hours making plans for the ceremony and reception sites and want to ensure it is perfect for their guests. They may or may not put a lot of thought into the ceremony, it gets lost in the party planning. But of course, the ceremony is the real start of your married life together.
