commitment ceremony is a way for a couple to show their dedication to
one another without the legal confines of marriage. Commitment
ceremonies are used when couples are not legally allowed to marry, as
in the State of Texas, but may also be used by those who do not care to
follow the standard marriage contract. These ceremonies celebrate a
couple's love and commitment without the requirements of marriage.
These ceremonies are designed to be a celebration of love. The ceremony publicly declares a couple's intention to enter into a partnership with one another. Often times couples enjoy adding a personal flair to the production, to make it uniquely their own.

Gay and lesbian couples seeking a way to celebrate their love when convention will not allow them to legally marry accept this as the best alternative.
Traditional couples that have the option of getting married but have an issue with the institution have also started to utilize these ceremonies. Commitment ceremonies declare love much the same way as marriages do, so if the couple wishes to have unique paperwork, this is a viable option. Couples may also lean in this direction to form a union specific to their needs or desires financially. For those marrying later in life with separate asssets and families, this can be an easier way to protect everyone.
They can resemble a wedding if the couple chooses. The couple can even wear the traditional bridal attire if they so wish. A commitment ceremony is often very similar to many other kinds of weddings. The difference is that rather than being a legally binding ceremony, it is simply a public affirmation of a couples commitment to one another. Generally, the couple is a lesbian, gay, or transgender couple, and thus are unable to marry under the law. A commitment ceremony may be religious or secular, formal and traditional or loose and unstructured. The makeup of the ceremony will depend on the rules of the officiant/house-of-worship and the couple's own preferences.
At Weddings and More, all commitment ceremonies include the same items as a traditional wedding ceremony with just a couple of exceptions: no marriage license and the pronouncement is slightly altered.
You can choose to have a small ceremony with just the two of you in attendance, or perhaps with a small group. For a small ceremony, a great option would be our "Rendevous" package.
If you decide to have a bigger ceremony, check out our "Classic Rendition" package.
We do require a reservation, received at least 1 week before the ceremony along with a signed contract and non-refundable retainer fee. If the ceremony is the same-day or last minute, there is no contract or deposit required.
