Many people consider weddings to be a “big day.” There is nothing more joyful than organizing your wedding preparations, especially with the love of your life, whom you will spend your whole life with. Nothing is more exciting for a bride and groom-to-be than looking for venues, planning your entourage, writing your vows, and looking for wedding cake designs.

However, some people prefer to marry civilly. Civil unions are becoming increasingly popular, particularly among younger generations. Here are some of the reasons:

1. Practicality

Unlike church or any religious wedding ceremonies, civil weddings are a lot cheaper. There is no need to pay any additional fees. ICYDK, some churches and venues charge extra for air conditioning.

2. Freedom

There is a standard format that must be followed for a traditional wedding. Meanwhile, civil marriages give couples more options. When it comes to venues, there are no restrictions. Couples can choose when they want their wedding to be officiated. As a result, people who prefer a more personalized wedding opt for a civil ceremony.
