With the ring warming, reading, ring vows, music, giving away of the bride, and unplugging the ceremony decided, it was time to get to work on the meat of the ceremony. The mushy, lovey-dovey meat of the ceremony.
We will begin by thanking our guests for joining us to celebrate our relationship, and acknowledging the significance each and every one has had in our lives. This will be followed by some yadda, yadda, yadda about the ring warming and handing off of the rings for said ring warming.
Then we will proceed by telling the guests a little bit about our love story and how long it took for us to get to the wedding day. In this part of the ceremony, guests will learn of how quickly I knew Mr. Sugar Cube was the one, and how quickly Mr. SC knew he loved me. They’ll learn how many days of our relationship were spent apart and how we learned more than we could have about each other because of this, from how I like to save the best bite for last when I eat to how Mr. Sugar Cube always has to clean his bike before a bike race. They’ll learn how we quickly realized we were soul mates. A nice little lead-in for our ceremony reading.
At this point, Mr. Sugar Cube and I have given free rein to our officiant to insert her own little personal story about Mr. Sugar Cube and me. Possibly a little bit about each of us individually and then together. Who knows. What I do know is she’ll make it emotional and entertaining all at once.
