An Ibiza Wedding Ceremony In Detail
Your Ceremony is the emotional centerpiece of your wedding day.
Weddings in Ibiza are filled with love, joy, and celebration, but they also have an island-magic that can’t be found anywhere else in the World.
There are a few key elements to your Wedding Ceremony and some questions you should think about. They include:
- The Processional – Your entrance to the Ceremony and your walk down the aisle.
Will someone accompany you? Will there be bridesmaids walking before you? How fast should you walk? What music do you want when you enter?
- The Service
Whom would you like to deliver the service? What type of service would you like? What part of your couple story should the Celebrant focus on? How long do you want this part of the Ceremony to be?
Do you want friends and family to make any meaningful readings? Who will read? What reading materials will you use? Would you like something popular, traditional, alternative?
- Exchanging vows
Do you both want to write your own vows? Would you like to use something traditional and pre-written? Whats vows have you heard that speak to your values and how you feel about your partner?
Do you want to include music? Do you want live music or pre-recorded songs? What music complements your Ceremony?
- Exchanging Rings
Who will keep the rings beforehand and present them at the Ceremony? Would you like the rings blessed as part of the Ceremony before exchanging them?
- Unity Rituals
Is a Unity Ritual something you’d like to include as part of your Ceremony? What speaks to you – perhaps The Sand Ceremony, Handfasting, Lighting a Unity Candle, or another ritual?
- First Kiss
You don’t need any advice on this one. Go for it!
- The Recessional – The walk back up the aisle, together
Do you want to be showered in confetti by your guests? Will you stop to greet guests on the way back up the aisle? How fast should you walk?
As you can see, there’s quite a lot to consider.
But fear not, because this is where your Secret Ingredient gets added.
Your Secret Ingredient can bring everything together and help you create the perfect Wedding Ceremony.
What Is A Celebrant?
