We did a “tree planting” at our ceremony where we poured vases of soil from each of our parents’ backyards into a potted tree and then watered it with a watering can together. When we buy a house we’ll plant the tree in our yard. Everyone loved it. 🙂

Overall, I love ceremonies that are performed by someone who knows the couple in real life. One of the most memorable thigns I’ve seen is a bride that came in on the back of her father’s motorcycle for a lovely outdoor wedding. I was also floored by a groom that sang an absolutely beautiful Ave Maria – I think he actually did some amateur opera and had an amazing voice.

My favorite parts of our ceremony were:

  1. Ring Warming ceremony
  2. Reading read by a dozen friends/family, each reading one line.
  3. We did a blessing where we kneeled in the center aisle, the immediate family and bridal party put a hand on our shoulder or back and arm. Then the closest guests put a hand on the immediate family. Then eahc guest put a hand on the shoulder of the guest in front so everyone was connected to us in a big web and said a blessing hoping for a good marriage. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

A Practical Wedding helped me A LOT when I wrote our ceremony.
