The Signing Table
After the wedding vows and pronouncement of marriage, traditionally the marriage license is signed by the bride and groom as well as by two witnesses. This is usually done at a signing table. So how do you choose one?
From her experience, Paster Vickie has some suggestions:
- Pick a small round or square table with one or two chairs. A long table is too large and awkward to use.
- Cover the table, including the sides, with a nice tablecloth to accent the signing table as the focus of attention.
- A vase with flowers can also be placed on the table but make sure that it does not obstruct the view of any guests.
- Ensure that there is a good pen at the table ready to sign the marriage license!
