there are so many ways you can customize your wedding to be uniquely yours
Here’s five trends that are worth a second look!
ELEMENTS YOU CAN ADD TO CREATE MOMENTS THAT MATTER
As an officiant, I have the privilege of experiencing traditional and non-traditional weddings. I also do a lot of research and consult social media. While these trends may not be new, I am presenting five that are worth considering; ways to infuse your unique personality into your wedding.
Caution: Since the guest list is smaller, it may require some revision and compromise!
If you’ve always dreamed of a church wedding, that’s the way to go. If, however, that’s not the vibe you’re interested in, backyards, campgrounds, mountain tops, ice rinks, baseball diamonds, a waterside gazebo…. there are as many choices as you have imagination. Officiants can work wherever you wish for your marriage to take place. Let your location speak to how you met, activities you enjoy, tradition, family, whatever creates the experience that uniquely reflects you as a couple.
Caution: if you want to be married in a public area, do your due diligence and get a permit or permission if required
While candles and sand ceremonies have been popular for years, rock ceremonies can be a way of providing your guests a way to participate. Each guest can select a polished stone (provided by you), a crystal, shell or even a marble. During the ceremony, guests hold the rock in their hand, infusing it with their love and best wishes. Then, guests are invited on their way out to add their stones to a vase or special container where the couple have already placed their stones. They remain a reminder for the couple of all who support them and how their journey thus far and ahead is not alone.
Caution: ensure the stones will fit the container and that it can be easily carried.
Caution: emotions can be exemplified on a wedding day so keep this short and sweet and do not dwell.
