This outline covers each of the typical elements of a Christian Wedding ceremony. It is designed as a guide for planning and understanding each aspect of your Christian wedding. We have tried to include every possible element in a Christian ceremony, however, not all of these must be incorporated into your service, nor do they have to occur in this order. You may choose to add your own personal touches that give special meaning to your commitment as a couple.

Your Christian wedding ceremony can be personally designed, but it should also be an expression of worship, reflecting joy, celebration, community, respect, dignity and love. The Bible gives no specific pattern or order of service to define exactly what should be included, so there is room for your creativity. A primary goal should be to give each guest a clear impression that you, as a couple, have made a solemn, eternal covenant with each other before God. Your Christian wedding ceremony should be a testimony of your lives before God, demonstrating your Christian witness.

The Raj Palace has various beautiful locations where we can plan the wedding reception followed by cocktails and Gala Dinner for wedding

Please contact our wedding managers for the same. Email us at

Wedding Party Pictures: This should begin at least 90 minutes prior to the start of the wedding and be finished at least 45 minutes before the ceremony.

Wedding Party Dressed and Ready: The wedding party should be dressed, ready and waiting in the appropriate locations at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony.

Prelude: Any musical preludes or solos should take place at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony.

Lighting of Candles: Sometimes the candles or candelabras are lit before the guests arrive. Other times the ushers light them as part of the prelude, or as part of the wedding ceremony.

Dinner and Cocktails: Dinner and cocktails can be served to have a pre celebration of the wedding party. The suitable venue for this would be pool side gardens of The Raj Palace

» The Wedding Ceremony

Seating of the Parents: Having the support and involvement of parents and grandparents in the ceremony brings a special blessing to the couple and also expresses honor to the previous generations of marriage unions. The processional music begins with the seating of the honored guests:

    • Seating of the Groom's grandmother

    • Seating of the Bride's grandmother

    • Seating of the Groom's parents

    • Seating of the Bride's mother

Bridal Processional Begins

    • Minister and Groom enter usually from stage right. If the Groomsmen are not escorting the Bridesmaids down the aisle to the altar, they also enter together with the Minister and Groom.

    • Bridesmaids enter, usually down the center aisle, one at a time. If the Groomsmen are escorting the Bridesmaids, they enter together.

    • Maid or Matron of Honor enters. If she is being escorted by the Best Man, they enter together.

    • Flower Girl and Ring Bearer enter.

Wedding March Begins: The Bride and her father enter. Typically the Bride's mother will stand as a signal for all of the guests to stand. Sometimes the Minister will announce, "All rise for the Bride."

The Call for Worship: A Christian wedding ceremony is not a performance, but rather an act of worship before God. In a Christian wedding ceremony the opening remarks that typically begin with "Dearly Beloved" are a call or invitation to worship God. These opening remarks will invite your guests and witnesses to participate together with you in worship. God is present in your wedding ceremony. The event is witnessed by heaven and earth alike. Your invited guests are much more than just observers. Whether your wedding is large or small, the witnesses gather to offer their support, add their blessings, and join with you in this holy act of worship.

    • The opening Prayer

    • Congregation is Seated

    • Giving away the bride

    • Worship song

    • Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

    • Flower Girl and Ring Bearer
