Making your wedding day unique - collection of ideas

Recommended Posts

I thought it might be useful if we share some ideas about how to make your wedding day less generic and instead include something different and special in the ceremony and reception. I'll start with a few simple ideas and I'm hoping we can build on it.

 

1. legalize the marriage at home or right before or after the ceremony, but have a friend or relative perform the brief symbolic ceremony - i've seen some videos of the typical legal ceremony: spanish first, translator, "this marriage is made legal by the 4 witnesses...", they name the witnesses and go on about how this is a legal requirement in mexico

 

2. write your own vows

 

3. slide show during the reception of baby photos, growing up, how we met, and the time leading to the wedding - this might be hard and $$$ to set up

We're going to incorporate my heritage slightly and subtlety. I'm Brazilian, so we're going to have some Brazilian candies in our candy buffet as well as the guys will all be wearing Havaianas (Brazilian flip flops) on the beach. That helps for uniqueness, right?!?

Our friend is going to play the bagpipes for our recessional and after the ceremony on the beach a bit of an Irish touch!

Love this! One of my best girlfriends is singing as I walk down the aisle. I have been listening to her recorded version of First Time Ever I Saw Your Face to desensitize myself to the song. It makes me tear up every time I hear it...lol

 

I won't be able to see Jay as I make my way down the aisle.

Great ideas! 

 

We're thinking of having a Mojito Bar during cocktail hour.  There will be 4 different kinds all with funky names related to where everyone flew in from (Vancouver, Toronto, LasVegas and Australia).  I haven't quite finialized the names yet, but we're thinking of something quirky for each.

 

Most of our guests (actually all of them) have never been to a DW so hopefully this will go over well.  I'll also need to include a couple of virgin cocktails for the non-drinkers. The actual reception will have a fully stocked bar.  So excited!  woot.gif

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
