FAQs

What do you mean by a SimpliDone Wedding?

To keep the costs and stress levels low, a couple no longer needs to go to a Justice of the Peace or Las Vegas to get married. A SimpliDone wedding is a small, intimate wedding without all the fuss and cost of a traditional wedding. The guest list is small, the ceremony is simple, the costs are greatly reduced. All this without sacrificing the beauty and meaning of the ceremony itself.

SimpliDone weddings can be either spontaneous or planned. More and more couples are choosing this type of ceremony for a private and personal wedding that focuses on the couple, reflecting who they are. The planning is minimal and the stress is taken out of having to make all those decisions and paying a substantial amount of money. The couple can concentrate on themselves, their love for one another, and their future together.

Couples who choose an elopement or all-inclusive ceremony want something more personal and memorable than just going to a Justice of the Peace or running away to Las Vegas. SimpliDone ceremonies have elements of a traditional wedding without the stress and the cost. They eliminate the need to fight over who should be invited, where everyone will sit, how many flowers and how much to decorate, what type of food, finding a place available, budget over-runs, etc. At SimpliDone, all you have to do is show up on the appointed day and time and enjoy yourselves.

Why would we want a SimpliDone wedding?

There are many reasons you might want a quick, hassle-free wedding where all the details are taken care of for you.

How does all this work?

To have SimpliDone provide a memorable wedding for you, follow these simple steps:

1. Select the package for your wedding

2. Contact SimpliDone to schedule your ceremony (when setting your schedule, remember you need to obtain a marriage license through one of the counties in Washington State. And it comes with a three day waiting period!)

3. Fill out the contract (e-mailed by us to you ) and pay the fee for your chosen ceremony. This will reserve your day and time.

4. Receive the confirmation email from SimpliDone and your job is done. (Well, you will still need to select outfits and rings, but that is the fun part!)

How do we pay you?

Prepaid with check, cash or money order.

Can we write our own vows?

You may write your own vows or modify one of the pre-written ceremonies from SimpliDone. You may mix and match from all of the ceremonies to come up with the special one just for you.

If you need more inspiration, SimpliDone can provide you with several vows and readings from which to choose.

What happens during the ceremony?

The couple stands before the Officiant to take their vows. The photographer will take pictures during the ceremony and photos of the couple and the guests after the ceremony. If you have selected the cake as part of your ceremony, pictures will be taken of the cake cutting and the toast to the new couple.

Can children take part in our ceremony?

By its intimate nature, all guests at a SimpliDone ceremony are part of the ceremony. You define what you want their role and level of involvement to be.

What happens after the ceremony?

The newly-wed couple, the Officiant, and the two witnesses will sign the legal documents immediately after the ceremony. The Officiant will file all the necessary paperwork with the county. You may start using your new name immediately!
