Your time at the altar will be brief, but the memory will last forever. A slew of factors from vows to your officiant all play into the few minutes spent in front of your friends and family. Take time to consider what you want to remember.
Whether or not you choose to write and read your vows in front of your guests is the first decision you’ll need to make. If you decide to read your vows at the altar, consider how you want to display the moment. Writing your vows in an aesthetically pleasing cluster of papers looks much more romantic than reading off of a phone.
Nobody wants to wonder “can anybody hear me up here?” Consider how many guests you have, your venue (especially outside), and you and your fiancé’s volumes. Several venues can offer audio services, so discuss your options with your vendors.
Pictures – Officiant
Photos of you at the altar will certainly include your officiant, but your photos of your first kiss should not. Coordinating with your officiant to take a few steps to the side prior to announcing that the couple can share their first kiss keeps the officiant from awkwardly tucking behind the couple or from not having enough time to duck out completely before the kiss.
All in all, don’t forget to breathe, smile, and take it in while it’s happening because your time at the altar will be shorter than you expect.
