How to Add Personality to Your Wedding Ceremony

Walking down the aisle, saying your wedding vows, spelling out the big two words “I Do” – those are the moments you’re planning the entire wedding for. Those are the memorable, magical minutes of pure bliss you will remember again and again as years fly by.

Of course, you want to make sure your wedding ceremony is perfect from all points of view. But more importantly, you will want to make sure that these 15-20 minutes are absolutely unique, and that they truly reflect your personality.

How to add personality to your Virginia wedding ceremony? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Choose a beautiful location. It doesn’t have to be the most expensive one. And it doesn’t have to be outdoors if you want a religious ceremony. But it should definitely be something that bears significance for you – such as the church you used to go to as a child, or the church where your mom and dad got married. If you plan on having an outdoor wedding ceremony, make sure the surroundings look pretty – regardless of what kind of landscape or waterscape it may be, the surrounding area should complement the grandeur of the moment.
  • Write your own wedding vows. If you are planning on having a religious ceremony, this might not be possible for certain religious denominations (i.e. Catholics have to say the traditional wedding vows). However, if that is the case, you can always include a brief speech during the reception to say your own wedding vows.
  • Pick meaningful songs. Your entire ceremony should be embraced by music – even when you’re saying your wedding vows, there should be dimmed down music in the background. Make sure you personally select these songs, so that they have a special meaning for you as a couple! Again, this might not be possible for certain religions, but it is definitely worth asking your officiant if there’s any room for flexibility in terms of the songs that will be played during the wedding ceremony.
