How to Personalize Your Wedding Ceremony

Your wedding ceremony should sound and feel like you. As long as you’re being kind and not making anyone uncomfortable there is nothing “inappropriate” for your wedding ceremony. AZ ceremony can give you many ideas  on how to personalize your wedding ceremony that reflects your beliefs and style. Your ceremony will tell your love story and set the tone for your special day. You can make your I do’s totally you. You can create a wedding ceremony that is fun, traditional, unique, or any combination that is you.

Tips to personalize your wedding ceremony:

1. Find a wedding officiant or wedding minister  that will work with you to create the type of ceremony that you are envisioning.

2. Find a style.
Decide what type of wedding ceremony you want to have:
* Long, short, traditional or non-traditional.
* Religious ceremony, ceremony with religious elements, or a totally secular ceremony.
* Civil wedding ceremony and say the legal bare minimum.
* Formal, casual, lighthearted,or themed.
* Create your own ceremony format.

2. Find a tone or theme.
Just like any good writing your wedding ceremony should have a tone and a theme. A theme makes the whole ceremony cohesive, and showcases your personal style. Choosing a theme and tone will help you choose vows, find readings, and help you and your officiant write the perfect ceremony for your wedding.

* Will the tone be nostalgic,relaxed, or formal?
* Is your ceremony aimed toward the community of loved ones there to celebrate and witness your love, or it more about the two you of you?
* Do you want to incorporate elements for a blended family.
* Will the ceremony follow a theme and build around a common element such as; commitment, love, family, children, how you met, what your partner means to you, describe your relationship, based on a video game, book, movie, religious writing, a song or your special creation.

3. Decide which components of the ceremony you want to include.

This is the minimum for a wedding ceremony: you need a marriage license, 2 witnesses of legal age, and someone who can lawfully perform the ceremony.

The ceremony should include the following:
The Opening Statement/Definition of Marriage
The Declaration of Intent (the I do’s)
The Proclamation: officiant – by the power vested in me I pronounce you husband and wife.
The Signing: The Bride and Groom, witnesses and officiant sign the license. The license must be filed with the appropriate government  agency.
4. Find things that make it feel like your ceremony.
There are a lot of ways to add touches that will make your wedding ceremony feel tailored to you:
* A special reading and who reads it.
* A prayer or religious tradition.
* Choice of music for seating of guests, wedding processional, bridal processional, recessional.
* Choice of venue; outdoor, indoor, private residence, park, destination wedding, local venue, hot air balloon, botanical garden, the choices are endless.
* A song sung by a friend, family member, or other musical interlude.
* A speech or blessing given by a family member, friend, or the officiant.
* Incorporate a family or religious tradition.
* Formal seating, open seating, or just a gathering of guests.
* Ushers, attendants, bridesmaids, groomsmen, maid-of-honor, best man, flower girl, ring bearer and page boy or girl.
* Groom is escorted, groom enters with officiant, groom enters with best man and groomsmen.
* Bridesmaids and maid-of-honor enter with no escort, bridesmaids and maid-of-honor enter with best man and groomsmen.
* Escort or no escort for bride.
* Giving in marriage, or support of the couple.
* Specialty ceremonies: sand, unity candle, cord, rose, or your own creation.
* Vows or no vows. Vows; you write them and read them. Vows; you write them, officiant reads them and you repeat them. Vows: Officiant writes them and you repeat them. Vows: you choose from a list, officiant reads them and you repeat them.
