One of the most common things I hear is, "We only need about 10 minutes of your time"
While a wedding ceremony may last 10-20 minutes, the time your officiant spends on your event, definitely is much more than you might think.
For an elopement, which would typically entail the least amount of time, will on average require an hour of your officiant's time. Consider the emails, phone calls and/or texts between you and your officiant, the time spent writing the ceremony he or she will be using, travel to your ceremony location, the actual ceremony and completing and returning the necessary paperwork.
Do I have your attention now?
We say these words, or a version of them, in our wedding vows, along with "'Til death us do part," or a similar version as well. Some may know the personal issues I'm currently experiencing in my own marriage, some may not. The details are irrelevant to this blog post, but it has certainly got me thinking, and I'd love to hear from all my readers. No trolling or you will be removed, and always show your fellow comment-ers some respect for their opinion, because nobody is every 100% correct when it comes to opinion. That said, here's what I want to hear from you...
...are your vows 100%, 'til death us do part? Or, is there some point in which you say that enough is enough? What is/would be that point for you, and why? Doesn't matter which portion of your vows you would like to discuss, any of them are "open season" in this discussion.
And let the fun begin!
