Your ceremony should be as exciting as your reception! Start the celebration as soon as guests arrive by throwing a short pre-ceremony cocktail party. Sprinkle your programs with personal details like facts about your VIP’s or photos from your engagement shoot. If you’re marrying at a location like a museum, zoo or garden, give your guests the option of taking a fun behind-the-scenes tour before your I Do’s. Want to do a slideshow? Play it before your ceremony rather than at the rehearsal dinner. It’s a unique way to entertain guests until the ceremony begins. Have your ring bearer carry your bands on something unique like a mini fishing rod or a slice of wood that says “Here comes the bride…” And finally change tradition and walk down the aisle with your Groom, it’s a great way to kick off your new life together!!
