Wedding Etiquette Tips 31


Wedding recession and ring exchange vow sample
We will continue from last chapter on Roman Catholic Church wedding ceremony. Like the church wedding that has been described before, there will be a ring exchange vow.

As the groom puts on the wedding ring on the bride’s finger, he recites the ring exchage vow, “XXXXX, take this ring as a sign of my love and fidelity. In the Name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Right after that, the bride picks up the other wedding ring and puts it on the groom, reciting the same words to her husband. Towards the end of the wedding ceremony, the couple will sign the register, the bride will sign it with her maiden name for the last time, followed by the two witnesses.

Witnesses chosen must be made known to the church in advance, as they must be over 18 years of age, usually they are the Chief Bridesmaid and the Best Man. Though the bride may sign her maiden for the last time, she is not legally bound to use her husband’s name.

When wedding ceremony has come to an end, the Bride and the Bridegroom will proceed with the wedding recession. The newly weds will walk down in pairs towards the church door, the Chief Bridesmaid with the Best Man on her right arm will form up behind the wedding couple,

following by all the bridesmaids behind them.

There are major similarities in terms of wedding ceremony with other churches that has been described, once the wedding recession has been concluded, the Bride and the Groom will proceed to the wedding reception that has been planned, if a wedding banquet is taking place at a hotel, then the wedding couple will first check into the hotel and rest for the time being. Between the time of the wedding ceremony and the wedding banquet to be held at night, wedding photographers may suggest you to take some wedding photographs with a nice view that set as a beautiful backdrop in a picture.
