Marraiges here in 3DXland

 

I am officially ordained as a priestess and although marriages here are virtual,  i try to provide a semblance of   the joy and passion of the union that marriage brings to the environment here.  it can be a  fun and wondrous thing to be married.  but it can also ruin a good friendship unless ground rules are established to cement the events and hook ups that invariable happen here.    I can perform many denominations of ceremonies.   The  one presented here is my simple ceremony and takes only a few minutes.  i sometime  do it in Pink text to differentiate it from the normal flow of conversation.

 

some simple rules to follow are  for the one accepting to NOT accept immediately so that pictures can be taken.    Once the ring is accepted, they kiss and the should NOT break the kiss for awhile as everyone  applauds and congratulations are offered.  The petals fall during the kiss and STOP once the kiss is broken.

 

I can  play wedding songs and usually stop after about 30 minutes and people have gotten seated.   The words (below) then go on in silence (not tunes) normally.  Doing the ceremony in pink text is a nice touch.  I then restart my stream  with tunes until another DJ takes over the  spinning.  moving to another room for  the reception is   good OR a new room is loaded while i open my room for an interim place to hang until a new room is loaded.

 

Officiant and  partners should be in group chat so the flow and info goes smoothly.   no others need be there unless  maid of honor, etc have  cues and need to sync the flow or actions.    I need to be prompted to continue after VOWS usually  so there is no big dead space.  I added some hearts at the end of mine to save the prompting and show end of vows.  ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

officiated a double ceremony recently and it was fun.   A few things went wrong which prompts me to post this entry.   It all comes down to planning and organizing and rehearsing.  With plenty of time before the event LOL.   There should be an organizer responsible to make decisions and organize the event.  A focal point for the  smooth flow of timing and actions.   the prginzer/wedding planner should work closely with the bride or groom  to make sure everything as as THEY want it because it is their special day.   working withthe matron of honor as also a good thing  as she can take on many of the  organiztion and schedule of the participants for the rehearsal and event advertising

 

Organizing activities should include:

 

1.securing a room    ceremony, alter, chapel  the room should be big enough to accomodate enough people but not too big or it looks lame.       Lines for the bridesmaids  and groomsmen to stand on  all army like makes for great wedding pics.   pads for the two partners to stand on and face each other also helps facilitate the positioning.     the comfy chairs are good cause many attendees have partners to  sit with.     make sure the room is easy to navigate in so peeps don't get frustrated and it takes forever to get all the butts in the seats

 

2.  securing a reception room -  if it is attached to the chapel is best so people don't have to go elsewhere after the ceremony, many may decide to not come to reception OR many will attend the reception instead of the wedding LOL.   I have seen separate reception rooms work well for some

hard call to make

 

3.  Advertising -   An announcement in Events forum is good  or a poster in your profile pics that you can also send to  all friends as an invitation.   A poster is nice and you can put it up in your profile so your friends can see it and plan.  Not everyone gets on Forums to see whats going on.

 

4. Rehearsal -     a good time to get colors   for all the brides maids and grooms men to get coordinated/   a few days before is best time to do the rehearsal as it usually takes 2 to 3 times longer than the ceremony.  Its also a good time to familiarize everyone with the room layout and know where the DJ stand and Radio is.   I have seen people load unfamiliar rooms and did not know where the radio was for the DJ's links

 

5.  time of the event should be solid and agreed by all.  Check forums events so you don't conflict with other pre-advertised partys

 

this is a work in progress  as i continue to help with weddings

The wedding of ClarisseMoon and Wraeven was officiated perfectly in my book.

Thank you for making it a special moment to the newlyweds but also to everyone who attended.
