We had no religious overtones, just a legal marriage in a building not a registry office, then had the meal and party there.
Felt good to affirm my commitment to my wife in front on friends and family, and for her to do the same thing.
Making those promises in front of everyone had a profound effect on me, and on my view of my relationship with my wife. We already lived together and we were already trying for a child (2 x miscarriages before the wedding), but it definitely felt more solid.
Will that be the same for everyone - absolutely not. But that's my experience.
