A welcome and/or opening statement may be very brief or lengthy. Ideally it is tailored to satisfy the desires of the bride and groom. Some of the elements included are to:

  1. Thank and acknowledge the importance of all attending.
  2. Deliver any special message the bride and groom desire to share.
  3. Discuss role of witnessing and support the marriage vows;
  4. Acknowledge those present in spirit but not in form (deceased relatives, etc.)
  5. Outline or preview the marriage ceremony;
  6. In some cases, offer stories featuring the bride and groom.

The welcome and opening statements are usually presented by the officiant.
