How are you personalizing your wedding ceremony?

What are you doing to modernize and personalize your wedding ceremony?

Are there any special elements you're adding or traditions you're definitely tweaking (or skipping completely)? I love hearing all about how people are putting their own spin on things!

    That's a great idea! I'm not much of a wine drinker or we probably would haha

    We are also doing this! Except opening ours at our 10 year anniversary we will open them at our one year, then put in a new one to open at our 2 year, and so on.

    We went on amazon and searched wooden wine box and got one for a great price. Then we went to the LCBO and found a wine from california that ages and bought it. We put the wine in the wine box and we are going to write a love letter to each other to place in the wine box at our ceremony for us to open up together at our 10 year anniversary.

    We're keeping is short and sweet. We're having both our parents walk us down the aisle. Although I want to walk alone, I've always been independent. But as the only daughter, my dad would be crushed. We are also skipping the garter and bouquet toss. And pruning the unnecessary bits in the ceremony.
    The building we are getting married in has an indigenous gallery on the main floor so we are toying with the idea of doing an acknowledgement that we are on traditional territory

    My fh and i want a very non religious light hearted ceremony. we are having our officiant re-tell our story of how we met in his own words and we will be also saying our own vows. we are skipping all of the sand/candle and wine box stuff, its not really us.

    We haven't decided on anything to modernize our wedding, but we plan to skip a lot of the traditional wedding trends (bouquet toss, garter toss, receiving line, etc.).

    We’re starting our ceremony out by thanking our parents:

    Today Jennifer and Brady proclaim their love and commitment to the world. Jennifer and Brady want to make special recognition of their parents for making today possible. Thank you moms and dads for giving us a wonderful beginning.

    (Brady and Jen give roses to parents).

    I think we’ll just give roses to our moms but still hug and thank both parents.
    We also want to include some of our own vows.

    My grandfather that raised me (I called him dad), passed away almost 11 years ago. and I wanted him to be remembered. So my 2 cousins (also his granddaughters) are going to go up and light a candle or something in his honour.
    beyond that. haven't thought of much else.

    My fiance and I are going to be using my parents wedding vows that were written by my great grandfather, and my grandfather who is my dad's father will be our officiant, and my parents will have no idea until the ceremony starts! Smiley shame

    We added some of the Indian traditions into the wedding to give that special moment and wore Indian outfits.

    We had our friend be our officiant and we said our own vows so we were both modern and personalized.

    Our wedding will be the joining of 2 people from different background and cultures. We are skipping lots of traditions and keep it to basic. I am glad my parents are ok with that. Moreover, none of us like making public scenes. So the wedding will be something simple and fun for everyone.

    I really want us to write our own vows but my FH really doesn't want to :/ Everything else that I've seen (sand, candles, etc.) just don't seem very "cool" or "us" so I'm still thinking Smiley smile

    My fiance doesn't want to do "performed" vows (reading our own), as he hates public speaking and gets too nervous. So we are going to write our repeat after me vows for the officiant.

    However I am really like this wine box ceremony idea.... I think it's a nice touch, and it gives us something to look forward to for our first anniversary to go with our cake!

    We aren't doing anything too crazy.

    We actually wrote the 'script' for our whole ceremony, so all the wording that the officiant says is ours. We're also writing our own vows. Otherwise, it's very simple.
