Looking for some ideas to make your ceremony unique in your own personal way? Here are a few ideas to add a creative touch to your ceremony:
Flowers! You may be thinking flowers, well duh. But you can get creative with the flower selection and arrangement. A flower arbor is an adorable way to draw attention to the ceremony space. Flower pedals down the aisle can be arranged in all kinds of ways to make the aisle look more appealing for pictures and for the grand entrance of the bride!
Ceremony music is a way to show creativity from the bride and the groom! If youre tired of hearing “Air from Water”, switch it up! Acoustic versions of your favorite songs make for great ceremony music! Have your parents seated to a fun acoustic version of their favorite song, like “All You Need is Love” by the Beatles. After the ceremony is over, you’ll want to make your exit to something fun! Try “Signed, Sealed, Delivered,” by Stevie Wonder.
Vows, writing your own vows is a simple way to create something special between you and your groom. This also adds a personal touch to your ceremony.
Don’t forget about all the other men that make your life so special! If you have someone other than dad that has been a big part of your life, let them share in your experience. Step-dads or grandpa’s also love to walk you down the aisle on your big day! Have a man on each arm, or have your dad walk you half way and someone else walk you the rest!
Also think of having both of your parents walk you down the aisle, so they both can give you away!
Chandeliers! A little bling hanging over top of the bride and groom is a cute and fun way to make your ceremony shine! Not to mention the great pictures!
If you have someone special in your life.. other than your fiancé, bring them along! Pets are a great way to liven up the ceremony, have your pets run down the aisle to greet you or have them escorted by friends or family! Cute bow ties and leashes and Dog Nanny recommended!
Love Locks! This is such an adorable idea to add into your ceremony. You and your groom pick a cute lock and key set, engraved or painted! During the ceremony, the Officiant will tell you to place the lock on whatever you choose and toss the key! This is great for weddings on the water because the bride and groom can lock in their love by throwing the key “overboard”. This is also a sweet idea to use with both sets of parents who present their own love locks as well.
Memory tables are a sweet way to remember those that could not be at the ceremony. Normally a table is dedicated to those who have passed with pictures of them and a cute little saying like, “We know you would be here today, if heaven wasn’t so far away.”
Make your ceremony unique to you as a couple- it’s about the two of you!
