New York magazine asked followers on Instagram and Twitter to answer which religious ceremony best suits them, from the traditional Jewish one to the one that celebrates marriage and children.
The survey also asked followers to describe what their favorite ritual was and the people they had a relationship with in their lives.
A majority of people said they loved the traditional wedding ceremony, with 59% saying they were very or extremely fond of it.
Only 11% said they had never been to a wedding, while 9% said it was not a big deal and 7% said their first marriage was not that big of a deal.
Celebrating family and friends is also seen as the best form of ceremony for many.
But only 9% of the people said their favorite way to celebrate family was to wear a ring or wedding band.
Most people said the most meaningful moment of their day was when they and their family shared a special moment of joy.
The poll also asked people to describe the most important things in their life.
People said having a good job, having a successful marriage, being loved, being supported and being loved by someone they care about were the most vital things.
“You’re never going to find a good religious ceremony that is as beautiful as a wedding ceremony,” said Katie McNeill, a New York-based photographer who works with religious groups.
“If you’re a wedding photographer, you’re going to have to make sure you’re doing something special with every single ceremony you do.”
McNeill, who is a registered Democrat, said that while it is important to have a ceremony that shows respect for the religious traditions of the other side of the aisle, there are many more ways to celebrate your partner and family.
“I love my husband and my family.
I love the time that we spend together.
I like to see them smile and have a good time together.
And if they’re not having a great time, I can’t complain,” she said.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
