dumb question probably

With weddings now a days, there's really no rule for how a ceremony has to go. I don't even know what the components of a real traditional ceremony are anymore. You can search the web for ceremony scripts and whatnot. I know there's a certain script that is normally used in a Catholic ceremony and one for a Methodist ceremony. Talk to your officiant to see what they have in mind, or if you don't have one yet, talk to a priest and/or minister or find someone who might have the traditional ceremonies and you can cut and paste certain parts you like. I found a few different scripts online that I mixed together to create our ceremony. Half an hour should be enough time for a ceremony, although I've attended a couple of Catholic ceremonies that were over an hour.

Good luck!

I had a non-denominational ceremony. The preacher (or whatever he's called) gave us a ceremony example. We could add or take out any part. Usually there is a reading and a song thrown in there near the begining. He did a little reading of his own about marriage and we got straight to it. It took about 30 minutes too. I'd ask the preacher at the church what they offer if anything. If they don't then I agree with abattyref and search online. It's your wedding, make it what you want. Good luck!
