10 Unique Wedding Ceremony Decorations Ideas
Lets face it – the wedding ceremony is where it all happens. Its the official part of the day, and its also the most important element of the day, getting married – and its the first thing your guests experience.
So the ceremony is the perfect platform to set the tone for the type of wedding you’re after. Whether its a traditional church wedding, or maybe you’re on the beach, or in the country on a fabulous property – or perhaps, like what a lot of brides are doing these days, you’re having the ceremony at the same venue as the reception – one seamless look at one destination. Pink Frosting have a huge range of wedding ceremony accessories to add to your day.
Here are a couple of unique ideas that will be a great talking point at your wedding ceremony:
Off to a running start - wherever you are, the bride is always going to walk down some sort of aisle per se – so why not make it a highlight and have a Personalised carpet runner with your names or wedding insignia printed
Keep it cool – beach wedding or not, its always nice to keep your guests refreshed and hydrated as soon as they arrive – offer personalised bottled water : a very “tres cool” way to carry through your wedding logo or design
Have it in the round – for something unique, stage your ceremony ‘in the round’ with the aisle cut through the middle – that way more people get a better view and you guys are really going to be the centre of attention
Mix it up – a lot of people these days are not of any particular denomination, however still like the traditions associated with weddings and like to recognise some or all religions – and the ceremony is the perfect stage in which to incorporate some fun elements of different religions or cultures. Perhaps its having the Chuppah and the “stamping on the glass” from a Jewish wedding; or a tradition from an Indian Wedding is a Mukhvas Box on arrival at the ceremony with a selection of mints for your guests to enjoy whilst they wait for the bride to arrive. Or if you’re really game to do something different, henna your hands. Perhaps its more a symbolic tradition, like that of the Japanese wedding with a 1,000 paper cranes that represents good fortune, fidelity and longevity. And to tie it all together, include a spiel in your Order of Service or Ceremony Book explaining the relevance of each element – a great little conversation starter amongst your guests.
Designate the Destination – for a modern touch to your wedding ceremony (handy with weddings where the ceremony and reception are the one venue, and where you’re more likely to have a bit more of a creative license with the space), a great way to “make it your own” is to print a decal and place it on the entry doors
Send a message – a great way to entertain your guests during the ceremony, and a good “time filler” if you know the bride is going to be ‘fashionably late’, is to have a “Wishing Well”. Include a slip of paper (personalised with your wedding motif of course) in your Ceremony Book and a pen (also personalised and a nice keepsake for your guests), and have the ushers ask the guests to write a special message to you while they wait. And to collect the “messages or well wishes”, ask a friend or relative who you know wanted to be involved in the proceedings and you just didn’t have a job for them......well now you do!!
Best in Show – include your pooch in the special day and have your little friend dress in a special tux or bow
Turn it up! – one thing I know for sure, is its important for all your guests to hear what’s going on – and everyone loves to hear the all important “I DO” – so make sure you are ‘wired for sound’ when you exchange those vows!
Ready Mr Music – certain songs or music always evoke strong emotions, and why not make sure you have those magic moments during the ceremony; people always think the DJ is for the reception, well I think they need to be there during the reception also (or at least someone controlling the on & off button). Playing the right music on arrival, the “here comes the bride” Ave Maria aisle moment (or something from ABBA perhaps?), and the big celebratory track to play at the end of the ceremony.
Include the in-laws – a nice tradition the Danish often do, is to have the parents of both the groom and bride seated up near them at the pulpit or the ‘pointy end’ shall we call it. Here they are seated opposite each other so the rest of the congregation can also see them. And as part of the proceedings, the ‘mothers’ will be asked to stand and swap places to symbolise the joining of the families. Perhaps as a little thank you, give the “mums” a gorgeous lace or crochet handkerchief – and for something extra special , have it monogrammed with the family names on it.
