Lavendar0:  I don’t think it relates to graphic design, but my FI and I plan on literally tying the knot. I’ve seen sooo many candle and sand ceremonies, I wanted to do something a little bit different.

Can you each design something that, seen separately makes no sense, but when put together, possibly overlapping, makes sense or is complete? Something that could be framed?

Some other ideas:

If you have a home with a yard or anticipate having one soon, you can get soil from each parents’ yard and plant a tree in a pot (later to be transplanted to your yard).

Cool take on unity candle/sand pouring: taking soil from the parents' homes and planting a tree with it.   Could think about other plants as well

Celtic Oathing Stone. Molly-The couple holds or puts their hands on a stone during their vows to “set them in stone “(I also believe this is where this phrase comes from, or so the rumor goes).<br /><br />  Truce Bell. A bell is rung on the wedding day, the happiest day of the couple’s lives and then is placed in a central location in the home. If the couple starts to argue, one of them can ring the truce bell, reminding them both of that happiness and hopefully ending the disagreement quickly.

Arras (coin exchange) Ceremony- The groom gives the bride thirteen gold coins as a symbol of his unquestionable trust and confidence. He pledges that he places all of his goods into her care and safekeeping. Acceptance by the bride means taking that trust and confidence unconditionally with total dedication and prudence. The custom of the coins originated in Spain. Often presented in ornate boxes or gift trays, the coins hold good wishes for prosperity. These coins become a part of their family heirloom.

We are doing a unity painting – FI loves to paint as a hobby.  We’re then asking our guests to sign it as a guest book.

I’ve also seen the unity glass ceremony. Rather than mixing sand, you have glass crystals sent to you then you send it back to have a glass sculpture or bowl made with your mixed crystals.

Lavendar0:  I was thinking more along the line of two dawings or paintings, maybe on transparencies , that, when overlapped created a design that was not visible when they are viewed separately. I am no artist- can’t even draw a stick man in proportion- but I have a vision of each having 1/2 a heart with half the initials and wedding date, or two drawings- one of a man, other a woman and when you overlap them they are holding hands or reaching out to each other.

You could each share your half, then put the two together and slide them into a frame.
