Often during the interviewing process (via phone, email or text) I'm asked, "how long or how much time does the ceremony take?", great question.
My simple answer is generally 15-20 minutes, yet it will totally be up to you as a couple what you desire within your ceremony and how long you'd like it to be. Remember, it goes so fast the actually day, ceremony and reception compared to all the time and planning you have now invested into this glorious day.

My experience is that couples across the board including LGBTQ couples have many similarities when planning their wedding as "traditional" weddings .

First and foremost, I believe there is no one vendor or DYI tip or trick that is all inclusive of anyone's marriage/relationship preferences. Yet, what is apparent across the board by all couples about to marry is the desire to create a special and magical wedding day. Working with professionals that have your best interest at heart is extremely important. Professionals that bring easy to the couple's wedding day when tempers can be short (you have worked really hard to get here), months of planning is final here and your deep desire for it to be perfect for you and your guest.
Engaged, setting the date, sendingt save the date, who will be in the wedding, wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, and the list goes on. You have decided on a beach wedding (so the look can be a bit more casual.)
So next , you have been asked to be a brides maid at your family or friends wedding, the first thoughts for some is OOOOOOOOOO my another brides maid dress. Commonly these days, more times than not, you have been asked to expense your own dress, yet the bride has decided what she wants her maids to look like.
