Order of Wedding Ceremony

You will plan the service with your officiating pastor. You are free to choose Scripture passages and even suggest some ideas you would like included in the message. The service is approximately 30-45 minutes.

Here is a sample order:

  • Music Prelude (starts 30 minutes before ceremony)*

  • Seating of the Grandparents*

  • Seating of Parents*

  • Set Aisle Runner (optional)

  • Brides Maids Entrance*

  • Bride’s Processional*

  • Giving of the Bride

  • Opening Prayer

  • Scripture Reading

  • Message

  • Declaration of Intent

  • Exchange of Vows

  • Pronouncement

  • Unity Candle*

  • Prayer music

  • Presentation*

*Denotes a time when instrumental or vocal music could occur.

All of your music can be prerecorded or you may want to add live music. If you need assistance with finding a musician or vocalist, your Grace Wedding Consultant can provide you with a list of musicians and vocalists available for hire. The cost for each musician or vocalist is $100. Payment for musicians is paid to Grace Church who in turn will pay the musicians. All musicians/vocalists need to be at rehearsal.
