hi there – i have about 6 sample ceremony readings that i can send you from my officiant. it doesn’t cost more to do your own vows, it will be the same cost – but i find they vary significantly between people (ours is $200 and i found others for $400 in alberta, canada).

i think your brother walking you half way sounds very nice, and then your fiance meeting you the other half.

let me know by pm if you want them – i have only figured out how to email them

I like the Fiance walking you down halfway; we’ll be approaching our 8 year anniversary when we marry so I really like that idea.  You’ve been together SO much you’re basically already married.

We’re doing a wine mixing ceremony instead of sand/dove release; someone else on the Bee told me about it.  Here’s a link to my post in which I asked your very same question and got 30 replies of different ideas: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/not-unity-candle-sand-or-wine-box-ceremony

My Fiance and I wrote our own ceremony too! We spent a day googling wedding ceremonies of all different religions/non-religions/cultures, and picked the parts that we liked best, and just kinda meshed it all together.

I found a lot of good inspiration for our readings here: http://offbeatbride.com/2008/07/wedding-readings

Offbeat Bride has several other posts with wedding reading suggestions, as well. We’re using a traditional Irish Blessing and the traditional Apache Blessing — you can google them if you’re interested.

Offbeat Bride also has a bunch of alternatives to the unity candle/sand ceremony! Here they are: http://offbeatbride.com/2011/04/unity-ceremony-options

Good luck! If you’d like me to email you our ceremony that we wrote, I’d be happy to!
