Fiance and I are getting married in front of 10 people – our immediate families and my 2 best friends. Our officiant sent us a bunch of possible ceremony wording for us to choose from. One of them had a water ceremony in it which was similar to a sand ceremony. Fiance and I were thinking that we would instead do a margarita ceremony. One of us has tequilla in our glass, the other margarita mix. They can stand alone, and each have their pros and cons, but together they are better. What our your thoughts on this? Fiance and I are both really serious, hard workers. We both have our PhD’s and do reasearch for the government so it’s NOT because we are partiers (we are usually asleep on the couch by 10). We got engaged in Mexico, and our families know that we like good tequilla. Any thoughts on this idea or maybe wording suggestions?
I wouldn’t do this if it was a big ceremony, but our families know us and love us quirks and all and would find this unique and fun and personal.

Somehow it comes off as disrespectful to me to involve alcohol in the actual ceremony.

I think it sounds quirky and fun. If it’s you, then go for it. It does kind of seem a bit informal, so I’m not sure if that fits with the rest of your wedding.

I think it sounds fun…plus, you can all drink together at the end! It seems to make sense and the ceremony is small enough that everyone will understand the reasoning behind it.

I think because you are doing it in front of only 10 people (who obviously are close to you and will get it) it would be fine.

Our wedding will be 10 people at a Bed and Breakfast. After the ceremony, we will all walk to a nearby restaurant and have dinner there. So, it’s pretty casual. We won’t actually drink it during the ceremony, it’s more just to make our ceremony more fun and unique, and to let us put our touch on it.

I attended a wedding a couple of years ago where they did a beer ceremony and made a black and tan. They had about 80 people there, and it was a weird mix of formal and informal. People got a laugh out of it.
I think if it matches the mood of your wedding and fits for you guys, then I say go for it!
