Wedding Ceremonies With A Touch of Sizzle Or A Dash of Surprise
Everyone knows exactly what to expect at a wedding, right? Even if you are planning to have a traditional wedding ceremony, don’t be afraid to add a little sizzle to the plans, or throw in a bit of surprise for the guests! Here are a few ideas to get you thinking about adding a little WOW to your special day.
- Dance down the aisle! Start with the standard slow and steady shuffle, and then halfway down to the altar, break out into a skip, a hop, or a happy little dance! Your guests (and waiting partner) will love it!
- Get your guests involved in the ceremony! Hand a paper with short supportive quotes on it to each guest; then have your officiant involve the guests by having them do the “Repeat after me” process as well. Example: “Repeat after me…We believe this love is meant to be….We support this marriage now and in the future…”
- The groom can surprise the bride too! You know every little girl dreams of the handsome prince riding in on his white horse to sweep her off her feet. While I don’t necessarily recommend the sweeping off the feet bit, as that could be disastrous, having the groom arrive a little “late” to the ceremony, slowly parading in on a beautiful white horse, would astonish both the bride and the guests!
Even if 99% of the ceremony is traditional, you can always find a way to add a little sizzle or a big surprise to make the day even more memorable for everyone! Don’t be afraid to throw a little something extra into the mix!
