Your wedding day is a day to remember and cherish. Make sure your day is extraordinary by adding your own unique ceremony touches.
Here are 12 ideas to get you started….
1- Make a change from the traditional seating! Don’t keep everyone in a row. Be creative and seat your guests in a circle or half circle
2- Wear a wedding dress which is your favourite colour and let the bridesmaids wear white instead.
3- Instead of carrying a bouquet of fresh flowers, why not opt for ferns or natural woodland features depending upon the season.
4- Give the bridesmaids each a pretty clutch purse to hold. This is both functional and a much lasting reminder of the day than flowers.
5- Skip the rice and confetti and have your guests wave flags instead.
6- If the reception will be in walking distance of the ceremony, give each guest a helium balloon to carry as they walk to the reception.
7- Create your own cocktail and give it a special name.
8- Display photographs of yourself and the groom from childhood photographs to the engagement.
9- Chose non traditional wedding invitations.
10- For guests who arrive from out-of-town, give them an information pack on the area and include things to see and do as well as restaurant suggestions.
11- At the reception have a prop box where guests can dress up and wear funny hats and glasses. A great way to get everyone talking.
