A civil wedding ceremony is performed by an authorized official or clergy, and may take place anywhere the Bride & Groom choose. Civil wedding ceremonies of this type are ideal for small informal weddings and often the choice for remarriages or couples with religious differences. A small reception may immediately follow or a larger celebration may be held at a later time. Popular locations for larger civil ceremonies include: homes, gardens, clubs, or hotels. The procedures would follow that of a religious wedding ceremony in dress and formality. A reception usually follows immediately.
