Planning your Wedding Ceremony

When couples think of wedding planning, they usually just jump straight to the wedding reception. However, the wedding ceremony won’t plan itself and it can be even more special and exciting than the reception, if it is planned properly. Your ceremony will be the first part of your wedding so it will set the tone for your whole day, so it is important to not leave the planning to last minute. Here are a few tips to get you started.


Your celebrant is going to perform your wedding ceremony, so it’s important you’re happy with your choice. Here at Marry Me Ireland, we have a huge variety of celebrants from all areas of Ireland to suit everybody’s needs, so if you are getting in contact and have any preferences, don’t be afraid to let us know. A lot of people leave getting a celebrant to the last minute, however, if you get one in advance you’ll have more time to perfect your ceremony script. Our trained celebrant’s will create a bespoke ceremony, perfectly suited to you and your significant other.


If your wedding ceremony isn’t in the same location as your wedding reception, make sure its not far off. A lot of your guests won’t be driving so they can relax and have a few drinks. However, if it is, why not look into getting a bus to bring your guests to the reception after the ceremony.


Wedding ceremonies can be magical, fun and exciting but if they’re not done right they can drag on a little and your guests may lose interest. Consider having a shorter ceremony that only consists of the things you want said and done. Ceremonies at Marry Me Ireland are completely customised to the couple’s wants, so the length and content of the ceremony can be tailored exactly to your needs.

Outside Ceremonies

While outside ceremonies are beautiful and in touch with nature, we live in Ireland so who knows how the weather will go. If you’ve planned an outside wedding have a back up indoors or a cover up handy in case things don’t work out as you’d like.

Here at Marry Me Ireland we have a wide variety of exceptional celebrants who can deliver the wedding ceremony of your dreams – traditional, unique or otherwise. So get in touch today and we can start planning your special day!
