After skimming through many posts on here for a few weeks, I joined. I’ve gained so many ideas and affirmations through all of you!
So, my husband and I are having our “official” wedding ceremony this November. Yes, we are already married. 😀 We are a military family and after our engagement, we found out that the empending deployment date was much sooner than expected, therefore we decided to get married even sooner! It’s been a trying year for the both of us as only months after we were married, he was sent overseas, but with my time here stateside, I began planning our WEDDING!! 😀
With all of that being said, I wanted your opinions on how to make our ceremony with our family and loved ones even more fun & creative since we’re already hitched.

I like Family unity ceremonies. They can bring children into the marriage or include parents of the wedding couple. Things like sand or rose ceremonies are good. Also handfasting or lasso are good too. Ring warming is a way to include everyone at your wedding, in your ceremony by passing the rings around.
PM me with your email addy if you want some examples of wording or have any questions.

I like when it isn’t a redo. So a handfasting or the like is a great alternative to me. And as long as you aren’t decieving people then I think you can pretty much do what you like aside from the pre-wedding parties (bachelorette/shower etc) but definately a girls night out to celebrate!

Thank you for ya’lls input!
@j_jaye — We don’t want any showers or parties. LOL I’ve one friend who sincerely wants to throw me a shower since I never had one, but I’m guilty of not wanting to. I’m a humble person and have everything we need and the man. A GNO sounds excellent!
We got married with the justice of the peace where it was just the two of us and a few of our friends as witnesses. Since we are both from different sides of the country, we wanted the real deal to having a ceremony this time around. It’s going to be an initmate evening, with only around 50 guests. Walking down the aisle with my Dad, the whole shebang. Although, we will be saying “We do, again!”
