Mock Wedding

Who doesn’t love a good celebration? Mock weddings are a fun, creative way to mix with sororities on your campus. Use an original theme for the wedding, and write up a ceremony to entertain your wedding “guests,” then retire to a mock wedding reception to celebrate the happy new couple.

Requirements:

  • Venue
  • Sorority
  • Space in which to host the mock wedding
  • Decorations/costumes
  • Enough chairs for all the wedding attendees
  • Bride, Groom, Someone to conduct the ceremony

Optional:

  • Food/Beverages
  • Best man, Maid of honor, Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, Ring bearer, Flower girl
  • 3rd party vendor for the “reception”
  • Transportation to 3rd party vendor (if applicable)
  • Risers/platform on which to conduct ceremony

Tips to Remember: Be aware of the sororities Risk Management policies with regards to alcohol if you want alcohol present at the reception. When choosing who will play which “roles” in the wedding, take into account personalities, ages, and who you think can most effectively conduct an entertaining wedding ceremony. The ceremony should not last more than 10 minutes.
