Hello there bees! I’ve finally decided on my first post topic- ceremony ideas!
So my question is: does anyone have any ceremony ideas that are different from the traditional unity candle or sand ceremony? I think those are both beautiful options, but I’m looking for something a little out-of-the-box. The Fiance and I aren’t religious, but I’d still love to hear of any ideas, religious or not!

We ended up skipping one all together and did a “hand blessing”. I loved it, but at the time we chose it because we couldn’t fathom spending $$$ on the unity in glass that I wanted so badly. If it’s in your budget, they look amazing!

My Fiance is from Scotlan so we are having a hand fasting ritual with his family’s tartan, a tradtion older than wedding rings themselves :] We aren’t religious either so we are having a humainist cremony, I highly suggest you do some reaserch on them, there are a ton of different types of ceremonies that are so personal and sweet!

We did a quaich ceremony!
As you drink from this Quaich, You drink from the cup of life, As husband and wife, From this day forward You will share life’s bitterness With its sweetness, Its disappointment With its happiness, And its tribulations With its joy, From this moment forward You will share everything, Doubling your joys And dividing your sorrows

Wine ceremony. We had a carafe each of red and white. Moms poured them into two glasses. We then poured the two glasses into one and shared it while the officiants talked about the process of making wine and how it relates to marriage.

We’ll be doing a wine ceremony as well. The version we chose will have us mix white and red wines from separate decanters into one glass, then each take a sip. The officiant talks about how the mixing of two wines symbolizes the joining of our lives.

We are doing a unity sandwich or a unity shot or maybe something totally else that has nothing to do with unity. Haven’t decided yet. We are not religious, so our ceremony is being written by us (FI is a writer/filmmaker). We are very extroverted and fun loving couple who loves to shock and awe people. We have also talked about skipping the “unity” ceremony and doing something else – maybe showing a short film we made or Fiance suggested a light show.
