Picture Perfect Ceremony
No picture is complete without everything you love. Follow these wedding trends for a ceremony unique to you, with all of your favorite things.
- Feature Some Culture: Couples that are multicultural are deciding to embrace their different cultures, by adding music native to each culture during the wedding ceremony. This is a chance for creativity, and an opportunity to fuse the joining families.
- Favorite Song: A new trend many couples are choosing to follow is to play their favorite song during the ceremony. Music can be played as a recording, or depending on the type of song, performed instrumentally or sung acapella by a live performer.
- Kids Allowed: When marrying into children, couples are finding it beneficial to include their kids. This helps with the children’s transition and sets a tone that family is essential. Have them participate in a ceremony made just for them instead of just standing next to the bride and groom.
- Guest Book Picture: Enlarge a picture of the bride and groom and have the guests sign it. A simple, yet unique way to create a lasting memory that the couple can have forever, and even put on display.
- Show the Guests Your Face: Instead of having your back facing your guests during the ceremony, face them. This trend is becoming more popular as feeling a part of the ceremony turns out to be more valuable for invitees.
- Pets Allowed: Animal companions are sometimes as influential as our human ones. Since mans best friend can’t be the “best man”, add spunk to your ceremony by allowing your pet to be your ring bearer or stand by you for a feeling of encouragement.
- Own Words: Writing your own vows are a way to showcase creativity and love for your spouse. The words are destined from the heart, expressing the way you truly feel. A promise from the heart is one that is sure to be kept!
- Own Voice: As if writing your own vows was not hard enough, the pressure is on to say your own vows as well. If someone else is reading it, the meaning could be lost. For the couple with stage fright, imagining your guests in their underwear could be the most dated, yet simplest solution!
