What about the actual ceremony? Well, we are planning a mix of Swedish and American traditions and will have a more detailed program posted near the first of the year. Here though, are some items we can share now:
The ceremony will start at 4PM on July 30 and will be followed by a sit-down reception dinner and subsequent party. We expect that the festivities could go quite late.
Quite importantly, we will follow the Swedish tradition of having an official toastmaster at the dinner. Their role as Masters of Ceremony includes coordinating and announcing toasts and other key information. Anyone can give a toast and they can be quite numerous at Swedish weddings. Toasts are arraigned ahead of time via the toastmaster. If you would like to give a toast at the reception, or just want more info on toasting, please contact Camala Kirchen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For families with smaller children, we will provide childcare on site for the duration of the event.
