The Different Kinds Of Weddings To KnowWeddings
As far as I’ve learned when I was a kid myself, there is either the wedding that is done in a church, or one that is done in front of a lawyer. Little did I know that there is actually more than just those two in particular.
As interesting as it is to know that you could wed in a different kind of ceremony than what you are accustomed to, know that it shouldn’t matter as much if all it meant is being together with your loved one.
Still, it’s nice to know that there are different kinds of wedding ceremonies.
Religious weddings are those from couples who are of religious faith. There will be a need to attend religious services before the actual wedding for a set period of time, as well as some couple counselling and pre-marital classes. Those could be a weekly thing on top of your wedding planning. Still, the ceremony itself could be the whole church thing too, which is most likely.
This is the ceremony done when you and your partner are of two different faiths. Instead of being wed under one faith, you are wed with both religions in consideration. The ceremony on this could still be the same as the usual where it is held in a church, however it might be in a different kind of church than what we are used to.
This is a ceremony that will mention God, but will not specify which God. It is a perfect ceremony for those who have general religious beliefs. It is probably still held in a church or most likely a place like in those photos where it is held in the beach and such.
This is the wedding that is not-at-all religious and is mostly held in a town hall or a city hall. It is done in front of someone like a lawyer and you will be speaking your vows to each and to that lawyer. It isn’t really all that grand but it is still very legitimate and you will still have the papers to prove that you are indeed married.
A humanist ceremony is not really legal in some countries. It is when there is no need for a religion or following any religious codes, as long as the couple will adhere to the strong moral codes of our society. It focuses more on the couple and their personalisation. In some countries, you will still need to be wed in a civil ceremony before having a humanist ceremony.
Same Sex Weddings
This is the ceremony that isn’t legal in some countries either. Couples can have their relationship have legal recognition by registering their relationship as a civil partnership. Your responsibilities will be recognised as well, though not legal in some countries.
