Ceremony for Introverts

Do you have a personality where a traditional ceremony scares you? Being the center of attention may not appeal to you, but there are ways to rethink the structure the event.

Your wedding ceremony should be true to both of you - that includes reflecting your style and personalities. If you are both introverts, you could consider a city hall ceremony. This allows you to bring a few friends, keeping things intimate and casual. St Louis City Hall and St Charles Executive Building has a great space to have a simple 5-minute ceremony.  

As an alternative, rethink the day in a way that pulls the attention away from you. You could SKIP walking down a traditional aisle and instead hang out with your guests pre-ceremony. 

There does not have to be a processional. Just get married where you are, on your terms. Starting the ceremony together might make you more comfortable. In the end, the goal of the wedding ceremony is to make your commitment of love in front of those you can about most. This can really take place in whatever form feels most authentic to your relationship.

Location, Location, Location

Looking for the right venue to have a special event can be overwhelming. Details about the site's amenities such as capacity, fees, the size of the parking lot, accessibility and other specifics you may not have even thought of. Who has the time to call and check on availability; whether or not the location is even what you are looking for?

Carolyn Burke can give great advice for a variety of wedding ceremony or reception locations. Mostly small and intimate, but large and extravagant too. 

Looking for ways to save on wedding expenses is an increasingly common scenario for young couples, faced with hefty student loans, credit card debt, a tough job market, and ever-increasing living expenses. Many couples are choosing lower-cost locations and planning smaller weddings close to home for family and their closest friends. 

To plan an event, your first impression is the first step along with the costs involved. The style or theme of the event as well as restrictions on space, privacy, and entertainment all have to fall in place. Once the location is decided, the next step is deciding who will officiate, the type and style of music to be played, and who is going to coordinate the event.
