You may want to reconsider the vows. Or maybe each of you pick a “reading” or poem to read to each other during the ceremony. I agree that making the ceremony  a little longer will make it feel more “wedding like”.

Also, what are you doing the morning of to get ready? Are you going to a hotel salon? That special treatment will make the day feel more special as well.

Maybe do a simple lighting of the candles as part of the ceremony.

My Darling Husband and I had a two person wedding too.

We did traditional vows and wrote our own vows, who says you cant have two vows.

We also did the winebox ceremony.

as for a reception – can you arrange some private dinner with a private waiter somewhere outside?  on our honeymoon, we did a private dinner on the beach and it was hands down the best “date” we ever had!!  totally extra special and romantic too. if we had done a 2 person wedding, i think that would have been the ideal way to have our wedding dinner.  and so it made our honeymoon extra special.

if you look at my honeymoon recap, scroll down to post #20 – 33 to read more how about how it was and pics.

Can you ask friends and family to record videos or write you little notes? Then you can read them before you drink kind of like little toasts ๐Ÿ™‚

I think the whole thing sounds lovely. Have you made arrangements for a photographer? Maybe having photos of the wedding, and doing some of the traditional posing, even if it’s just the two of you, would make it feel more “wedding”?

These can be added to a civil ceremony and are super super sweet.  We used them for both our ceremonies and Darling Husband cried both times – since we are older we did customize them to us.

****Please face each other and take each other’s hands, so that you may see the gift that they are to you.

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow and forever.

These are the hands that will work along side yours as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch will comfort you like no other.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief temporarily comes your way.


These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes, tears of sorrow and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.

These are the hands that will give you support and encouragement to chase down your dreams.

These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times.

These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.

These are the hands that will lift your chin and brush your cheek as they raise your face to look into eyes that are filled with overwhelming love for you.

And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

@brunette: i thought it might be weird too, but it wasn’t! it was cool having the waiter. my husband is very sociable too, so he made some good conversation with the waiter, lol!
