I have the reception all planned out and it’s going to be a fab party. But the ceremony is what I’m stuck on. I want us to write our own vows, so that parts taken care of. But I want to do something different and unique to tie in our original wedding. Any ideas Bee’s? I’m not even sure how vowel renewals go really.
Here’s a little about our Jamaica wedding:
My bouquet was green cymbidium orchids
Our first dance song was “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel
When I walked down the aisle I walked halfway alone and then stopped. He came to meet me in the middle and we walked the rest of the way together towards the officiant. It was the only thing about our wedding day that was us. It was also the only part of the day that brought tears to my eyes that I remember. For our “real wedding” my mom is walking me down the aisle. I don’t have the heart to take this away from her now. It would be nice to do that again for our ceremony this time. But the guests wouldn’t get that it’s from the 1st wedding. Unless we put it in the program…if we had those. Don’t know about that yet. CONFUSED!!!
I hated my dress and had to buy something last minute off the rack, so I’m buying a new dress this time. THANK GOD! I am thinking on wearing my 1st wedding earings though, it can be my something old. It will really depend on my dress though which I haven’t chosen yet.
Our wedding colors are purple and turquise with peacock feathers for this wedding. It’s a vintage themed wedding.
I had some ideas….like what if we built a wooden box and put some sand in it and stood in it for our vows. It would represent our 1st wedding. I saw it on Tori and Dean and it was pretty cute. Except I’m wearing Manolo’s and I don’t want to deal with sand in my shoes, plus the pics might be weird from that. I could just have one green cymbidium orchid in my bouquet as a little reminder. Our 1st dance song can be played at the wedding, but it won’t be what we dance to at this wedding.
Anyway, I’m stumped! I want something unique and special. I guess the 1st wedding doesn’t have to be tied in too much especially since we had such a crappy time and the pictures came out HORRIFIC!!
Any ideas on vowel renewal ceremonies you’ve heard about that have been cool or just some way to tie in our original wedding?
