Last Minute Weddings

From time to time I get calls from couples that want to get married quickly. There are countless reasons this happens.

Calls come from couples who have been planning to marry for a long time but just haven’t been able to figure out when or how to do so. Sometimes the stress of planning a wedding is overwhelming, or conflicts about family, location, and guests, all get in the way. Sometimes it’s the expense. Sometimes it is style, couples who just don’t want to have any thing fancy or feel like its too much attention. It can also be couples who have been married before. They tell me that they’ve already done the big wedding, this time they want something different.

I have not found it to be couples just thoughtlessly deciding to get married. Perhaps this happens in Las Vegas, but it has certainly not been my experience here in the Poconos. Most of these folks have been, if anything, over-thinking it!

Casual can be great!

What does last minute mean? It could be as little as a few days to as much as a few months. For large, more traditional style wedding, the planning takes place over the course of about a year (give or take). A last minute wedding can mean different things.

I am happy to assist all couples by providing something that is right for them! I still take the time to get to know who they are and what they believe and create something to reflect that, even if I have to put it together rather fast. I even thrive on the pressure to gather the information, get a good feel for them and get down to writing the ceremony quickly. It’s just part of my personality.

You don’t need a fancy dress, you don’t need a fancy cake. You need only your love and commitment, and a marriage license. And fortunately I have my own beautiful outdoor ceremony site: Harmony Gardens.  It can be as casual or formal as you want. But don’t mistake casual for meaningless. Clothes are not what gives your marriage ritual meaning.

If you’ve been engaged for a long time, its time to get those plans going! Whether you want to get married next week or next year – make it happen! Good luck!

Very casual indeed!
