How to personalize your ceremony

Who said that a civil or symbolic ceremony cannot be emotive and 100% personalized?

THE ADVANTAGES OF CIVIL OR SYMBOLIC CEREMONIES

One of the advantages of choosing a civil or symbolic ceremony is that you can personalize the notes as you want.

You can also get married in dreamy places like gardens or historic palaces without being obliged to give the “I do” in a church.

But how can you personalize the ceremony and create a magical and unforgettable atmosphere?

THE WEDDING OFFICIANT

If it is a civil ceremony, it must be officiated by a city councillor or a notary public. But if it is a symbolic ceremony, you can choose a professional wedding officiant or a family member or a friend.

I always like to advise couples to choose someone close and that know their history. But you should always keep in mind that the person you choose likes to speak in public and feels comfortable in their role.

But there is also the option of hiring a professional wedding officiant that together with the couple will personalize the whole ceremony and take care of officiating on their wedding day.

READINGS AND MUSICS

Other important elements that will help to personalize your ceremony are the readings and the musics.

You can decide that some of your guests will take part to read some text written by themselves or simply poems or texts that talk about love, relationship, etc.

All these moments can be accompanied by background music chosen by the same couple and that will create an even more magical atmosphere. You can hire trios or string quartets or that the Dj puts the music previously chosen.

The entrance of the groom as well as that of the bride, and then the end can be accompanied by the favorite soundtracks of the couple.

RITUALS TO PERSONALIZE THE CEREMONY

In addition to the moments that can not be missed as the exchange of rings and votes, you can add a ritual that represents your union. It can be the sand ritual or the candles ritual or the handfasting ritual.
