Did you or are you bringing some unique element into your ceremony that makes it even more special to you?
if you have picture, post it..
We're having our dream wedding ceremony on the moon! Sorry ladies no photos, you'll just have to wait and see (;
My DH & I incuded the kids in a very special way and we were all crying!! We wanted to honor them and let them know they were also getting married that day right along with us!
Still waiting for our pros but when I do get them I will be sharing!!
thanks for sharing, fearce and suzanne..s'more?
Instead of the traditional unity candle, we are doing a flower ceremony, where we will each collect two flowers from our mothers and grandmothers (she will hold both hers and her husbands) representing all that they have done to make us who we are. Once collected, we will bind them into a bouquet representing our unity:) The idea actually came from plumcrush01! She has some pictures in her bio, I believe.
We're doing something similar littlebit! We're presenting Roses to our Mom's.
Rose Ceremony for the Mom's
"In addition to the celebration of the love between Daniel and Ashley, this wedding is also a celebration of family. It is the blending of two families, separate up to this moment, but united from this day forward. Daniel and Ashley wish to honor this blending of the families by presenting a rose to their Moms — to thank their parents for the many selfless sacrifices they have made and for the unconditional love they’ve so freely given to their children."
we did our own unity candle.
@fearce-- on the moon huh?! cant WAIT for those pics ;)
our ceremony is going to be pretty traditional. we have met with the minister twice so far to go over everything, and it has been established that we want it to be as quick and to the point as possible. so no frills for us! we are having 2 memory candles though, that will be for my dad and FIs grandfather, and rather then the candles just being part of the decoration, at a certain point, our minister will draw attention to them. but just something short and sweet. even though my dad passed 17 years ago, i just want to make sure that i honor him. on a normal day im fine with him not being here, but my wedding day is going to be a different story.
will be including children in our vows too.
In lieu of a unity candle, we did a hand ceremony (something that our pastor had never even heard of!). It was so special for us, and it served as a reminder of what we are to each other and the commitment we've made. Our pastor liked it so much that he's going to offer it as an option for couples in the future.
