Personalize Your Wedding Ceremony

Jason, Andree and Janie

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!!
