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?!?

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

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
