It is common for brides (and grooms) to feel nervous or anxious prior to their wedding ceremony. In many cases the feeling of 'wanting to run away' dissipates after the ceremony. However, my best advice would be to seek the opinion of a Marriage or Relationship Counsellor.

What should I do if I think that one of my guests may cause a scene at my ceremony?

Related to Relationships

As a Celebrant I have had to manage a range of complex issues during marriage ceremonies. Often, the idea that a guest may make a scene, is the bride or groom projecting his or her own stresses and tensions in the lead-up to the big moment. Wayward are also generally corralled (or calmed) by your many other guests, the bridal party, the Celebrant or the function or venue staff.

Can I walk down the Aisle if I am Pregnant?

Related to Relationships

Yes. The notion that woman is not allowed to get pregnant prior to her wedding day is an old (non-secular based) belief. Since many couples live together prior to marriage, the application of outdated laws often confuse modern notions.

Is it normal for my partner to take no interest in the planning of our wedding?

Related to Relationships

Yes, in fact it is very common for only one partner to do the majority of the planning. In most cases this is obviously the female, since males feel either inadequate in the planning area, or intimidated and overwhelmed by the foreign nature of services that need to be researched and shopped for.

What if I have second thoughts before I walk down the aisle?

Should I meet a number of Celebrants before making my decision about which one I should use?

Related to Experience

Many websites and magazines will advise you to meet several suppliers in each category (photographers, celebrants, florists etc), before making your final decision. The issue with this is that if you find a Celebrant (or supplier) you like, the celebrant (you liked) may be booked by the time you finally meet all the others. My best advice is that if you find a wedding supplier you like, book them immediately. Only if there is doubt, would you move to the next one in the queue.
