The Weddings Online Ceremony Planner is Changing

Life Events Team

In March 2021, the popular online wedding Ceremony Planner, available through yourchurchwedding.org, will be changing.

Note that it is just the Ceremony Planning tool that is changing, not the pages of information on the rest of the website, yourchurchwedding.org – this will be staying just as it is.

On the Planner, instead of having to log in, select choices and save them into the password-protected tool, couples will simply download an editable PDF into which their choices can be typed and then the document can be saved into their own computer files.

There will still be drop-down menus of hymns and readings to choose from in the PDF, and links to pages on yourchurchwedding.org where couples can listen to hymn extracts and read suggested Bible reading passages.

The change will have several advantages:-

  • It will simplify the process for couples – no login details to store or remember
  • The document can be emailed to the vicar as a simple attachment
  • The document can be edited offline
  • There will be no data storage required at the back end

The online Ceremony Planner will be closed some time around mid-March, so if you think any of your couples will be using it to plan their wedding, please make them aware.

There is some text on the Home page of the Planner which tells couples about the change and what to do if they are in the middle of planning.

Later in March, anyone visiting the old online Ceremony Planner URL will be re-directed to a new page where they can open the PDF.
