It’s so important to have a wedding that truly reflects the couple and their personalities. We’ve come up with five different ways to personalize your wedding ceremony. Take a look at some of our favorites!
Write Your Own Vows
We love it when couples choose to write their own vows. It’s so special to hear what each couple has to say to one another. This is also a great opportunity to show your personality! On that note, vows don’t always have to be serious. You can add a little funny aspect to them too. Take a look at this video to see what we’re talking about! 🙂
Ask Your Friends to Officiate
Having a friend or family member officiate your ceremony makes your big day that much more special. You never know how much your loved ones actually want to become ordained to marry you! All you have to do is ask.
Take the fear of hundreds of people staring at you out of the way by having a family-only wedding ceremony. You can still have a reception after where all of your friends and family can celebrate your marriage. This reception can be right after the private ceremony or even on a different date!
Capture The Day Through Art
Live art at a wedding is everything! Especially of the couple during their vows. This is not only a wonderful gift for the bride and groom to enjoy forever but also a great way to have your guests engaged during the reception as the artist puts the finishing touches on the portrait. Dan Nelson is a local artist that does beautiful live paintings in Raleigh and beyond.
Give a Post-Vow Toast
Immediately following your ceremony, pour a glass of your favorite bubbles and make a toast to all of the guests you invited to witness your marriage. It’s the perfect segway into the reception.
