10 Ways To Make Your Wedding Ceremony Stand Out

Updated: Aug 23

The ceremony is arguably the most impactful and emotional part of your wedding day. It’s not only a celebration of love while surrounded by all your family and friends, but a representation of two lives coming together and the beginning of a happy future. With the traditional wedding ceremony formula in mind, it can be hard to find ways to make yours stand out when planning. Luckily, we have 10 unique wedding ceremony ideas you can use to make your wedding ceremony yours, whether steeped in tradition or completely out-of-the-box!

1. Flower Girl and Ring Bearer with a Twist.

Have some fun with these traditional roles. Ask your best man or maid of honor, groomsmen or bridesmaids, or older relatives like a grandmother or grandfather to do it instead of the usual little ones. You can even have a furry (well-trained) friend trot down the aisle to deliver the rings.

2. Create a Vow Time Capsule.

After reading your vows, place them in a box for you and your spouse to open on your 10th anniversary. It’s a great way to celebrate your future together and profess your commitment to one another in front of your friends and family.

3. Be Creative with Seating.

Disrupt traditional ceremony seat arrangements. Have your guests seated in a row of circles and get married in the center. This provides everyone with a good view and a more intimate space. You can also create a square seating space by adding seating on the three sides of where you stand.
