Wedding Ceremony ?

Recommended Posts

So we are paying a lot of money for the set up of our ceremony so I really want it to last more then 5 - 10 minutes. I am adding the sand ceremony, does anyone have any other non religious, unique, spiritual traditions that we can do?

This is the order of our ceremony:




Small Speech About Us As A Couple


Sand Ceremony



Echange of Rings

Blessing Over the Engagement Ring

Pronouncement Of Marraige


Breaking of the Glass



What I would reccomend is getting to know your officiant well before the ceremony, if in person or through email or phone conversations. This will enable them to write something very sentimental about you as a couple. Our officiant is in the family, so obviously she knows us very well.


Also, try to look for readings that you could do. Poems that you love, saying that you love, song lyrics that are appropriate to your marriage, or religious verses (if you're doing a religious ceremony). Then, enter them all into a word document. Try to put all the readings in an order that actually flows/makes sense. This was probably the most difficult part for us bc we wanted to include a lot in the ceremony, and they were all things that meant a lot to us, but didnt flow naturally. But with a lot of work, you can get the entire ceremony to flow properly.


Good luck!

We are doing a Celtic hand fastening ceremony. They have versions of the hand fasting for nationalities also.


There is the hand ceremony. If you think you can get through it without crying. wink.gif


There is a part I really love about the Mayan/cosmic ceremony where each of your guests get to come up and say something to you both; a blessing, passing on wisdom, a poem, a song, whatever they want. If your guest list is on the smaller side like your this might be an option.


Hope those help. Carla :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
