The Most Important Part of a Wedding

At any wedding, there are a lot of moving parts to the ceremony. But the most important part of the whole thing is what happens when you say your vows to each other. This is the moment when two people who seem so perfect for each other take big promises and commit to each other forever. It is the moment that everyone will remember, not the centerpieces or the flowers or even the bride’s dress. The thing that will stay with you forever is the emotion — that maid of honor who broke down while reading her speech, that groom who couldn’t stop smiling as he looked at his new wife.

During the ceremony, it is usually customary for the best man and maid of honor to give their speeches before the newlyweds themselves take the stage to say their own vows. It is also common for the couple to do some kind of unity ceremony, which can be anything from a unity flower ceremony or sand ceremony to lighting a candle or passing a bottle of wine. Then comes the signing of the registry which makes you a married couple.

When it’s time for the bride and groom to exchange their rings, a lot of people put a lot of thought into how they will do it. Some couples may want to make it a more personal touch and tell a part of their love story, such as how they met or how the groom proposed. Other couples might prefer to keep it simple and just show each other their rings.

Then comes the kiss — this is one of the most exciting parts of the whole ceremony. Whether the groom sweeps his bride into his arms and gives her a huge kiss or the bride gives the groom a sweet peck on the lips, it is a beautiful way to celebrate your marriage and let everyone know you are now a real-life couple.

Then, the officiant pronounces you married and turns to the crowd to encourage them to applaud and celebrate. After that, the newlyweds lead the recessional down the aisle as guests cheer for their union. Then you’re free to spend the rest of your day with the ones you love and cherish forever.
