A Unique Wedding Ceremony

Unique Wedding Ceremony

You are planning your wedding day, and every detail must be perfect. If you are searching for unique rituals and symbols to make it more meaningful, keep reading. We are sharing a few tips to help you plan a unique wedding ceremony.

Choosing a Unique Venue

A unique venue is important for creating the ceremony experience you want. The aesthetic you envision, location and designs are very important elements. Creating a unique ceremony space requires that you plan inside of a customizable space. Rather than renting the empty space, plan at an all-inclusive wedding venue that includes the wedding designs and professional wedding designers. Your venue will create the backdrop to frame your perfect moments. The easiest way to design a unique ceremony space is to plan with a venue with in-house wedding designers and unique décor options.

Vows and Readings for a Unique Wedding Ceremony

Your rituals and vows are the most important parts of the ceremony. Creating unique vows can make the ceremony feel more meaningful. If you want to write your own wedding vows, find a wedding officiant with sample scripts and experience assisting couples with writing vows. Special readings can make the ceremony unique. Love is one of the most written about topics of all time. Everything from Shakespeare and romance novels to religious scripture provide us with so much to read on the subject. If you want to include a special reading, take time to research and choose an excerpt that is significant to your relationship and experiences.

The words of Corelli’s Mandolin are frequently borrowed for the way love is defied as “ . . . a temporary madness [that] erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. [It’s when] your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. [L]ove is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. [L]ove itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”

An Outline for Unique Vows

Like everything else, your wedding vows have a blueprint. Create an outline that begins with the reasons this other person has your heart. This could be a background story, a quote or a special reading that sets the stage. Avoid making your wedding vows too wordy. Follow with all of your reasons for loving this person. Finish with your promises. If you are including traditions, such as a unity cup, sand ceremony or jumping the broom, you will probably plan unique vows for those rituals. Your officiant will conduct your unique wedding ceremony. Make sure you plan with your officiant.

Rituals and Symbols for a Unique Wedding Ceremony

A unique wedding ceremony can be created with rituals and symbols. You might consider planting a tree in a decorative pot or jumping a broom. A handfasting ceremony, unity candle or sand ceremony are traditions that make the wedding ceremony special. During a handfasting ceremony, the officiant wraps a chord three times around the hands of the bride and groom while explaining the symbolism. During a unity candle ceremony, the bride and groom light a column candle to symbolize uniting as one. A sand ceremony is similar to the unity candle ceremony. The bride and groom pour colored sand into a single vase to symbolize becoming one. If you want to add a special ritual to your wedding ceremony, discuss it with your officiant.
