Please be warned that the ceremony will be postponed if both you and your partner do not finalize wedding preparations in the dressing room within 20 minutes (Earth time) of the doors opening.

During the ceremony, you and your partner will receive eternity rings in exchange for your promise wristlets.

After you and your partner have finalized the ceremony plan in your respective dressing rooms, you will have another 20 minutes (Earth time) before the ceremony commences. If you do not wish to wait however, you may begin immediately by ringing the eternity bell.

The dressing room is the last place where you may attire yourself prior to the ceremony. Please ensure that your appearance is as you desire ahead of time.

The ceremony will proceed as follows:

  • You and your partner will make your entrance.
  • An address is given to guests in attendance.
  • The blessing and exchange of rings.

Ordinarily, the ceremony will proceed through its stages at a predetermined pace. If both you and your partner ring the eternity bell, however, you may move to the next stage without waiting.

After the exchange of rings, the reception will begin, during which time you, your partner, and your guests may mingle.

Please note that the ceremony requires a maximum of two hours (Earth time) from start to finish.

When the ceremony has ended, you may report to Claribel to complete the special quest The Ties that Bind and receive rewards according to your service plan.
