So many different options for your big day

Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the most important days of your life but for many it is fraught with anxiety and stress over making sure that you have the day that you and your partner want as well as taking into consideration the wishes of bot families. Sometimes you have to take a step back and remember that this is your day and one time when you are allowed to be selfish and have the wedding that you want.

Once you have chosen your ceremony style and venue pretty much everything else follows the same pattern – wedding dress, flowers, cakes, catering and entertainment. One thing people sometime forget is to remove their Coloured Stone Diamond Engagement Rings like the ones you can see at https://www.comparethediamond.com/diamond-engagement-rings/coloured-stone before the ceremony.

Here are some of the ceremony options that you have available to you:

Religious ceremonies

There are many options when it comes to religious wedding ceremonies, with the one stipulation usually being that you are currently of that faith. Whether or not you are active in the religious community may not have a bearing on your ability to be able to get married in a religious ceremony but is often down to the individual presiding over the ceremony.

For a Church of England wedding banns will have to be read out at three consecutive weeks services before the wedding day. These banns were thought to originally be a way for the local community to be aware of the wedding and to lodge any disapproval of the marriage before the actual day. The need to get married in your local parish church has been relaxed over the years and if you have no family connection to the church that you wish to get married in you may be asked to attend a couple of services prior to your wedding day.

If you wish to get married in a Scottish church, again there is no stipulation that you must be resident in Scotland at the time. But you must give notice of your intended marriage at least 15 days before your wedding day to the Superintendent Registrar for the district your location is in.

Civil ceremonies

These types of ceremonies can take place in any location that has been licensed to hold weddings. But 28 days’ notice must be given to the superintendent registrar of your intended wedding date. Once you have given your individual notices, they will be valid for a period of one year.
