PERSONALIZE YOUR CEREMONY
 
 
Regardless of your religious affiliation, there are numerous ways in which you can personalize your wedding ceremony to add a more creative touch. If you're planning a religious ceremony at a church or temple, be sure to discuss all ideas with your officiant.

The following list incorporates some ideas to personalize your wedding ceremony:

 

•           Invite the bride's mother to be part of the processional. Have her walk down the aisle with you and your father. (This is the traditional Jewish processional).

•           Invite the groom's parents to be part of the processional also.

•           Ask friends and family members to perform special readings.

•           Ask a friend or family member with musical talent to perform at the ceremony.

•           Incorporate poetry and/or literature into your readings.

•           Change places with the officiant and face your guests during the ceremony.

•           Light a unity candle to symbolize your two lives joining together as one.

•           Drink wine from a shared "loving" cup to symbolize bonding with each other.

•           Hand a rose to each of your mothers as you pass by them during the recessional.

•           Release white doves into the air after being pronounced "husband and wife."

•           If the ceremony is held outside on a grassy area, have your guests toss grass or flower seeds over you instead of rice.

•           Publicly express gratitude for all that your parents have done for you.

•          Use a canopy to designate an altar for a non-church setting. Decorate it in ways that are symbolic or meaningful to you.

•           Burn incense to give the ceremony an exotic feeling.
