I had a beach wedding and one of the suggestions I received was a unity sand ceremony. I didn’t do any of that stuff though, but I don’t think the sand ceremony is necessarily only for a church setting. you could do a unity candle?

Actually Most churches don’t allow for unity ceremonies, though some do. You can do this if you want. What about the dollar dance (this is only ok in some areas- like ours- it may be against etiquette where you are)

Where I am from I guess tradition would require you to book/organise the following (in order of events); so sorry if this comes off missknowitallsy but I found lists like these INCREDIBLY helpful while I was planning..

= choose ceremony location, celebrant, florist, attire, reception, photographer & sort out paperwork=

Save the dates & invitations go out

Day of:/

hair & makeup for bride, bridesmaids & mums

Getting ready photos – old new borrowed blue – wedding dress hanger (write a list of must have photos for ur photog)

Transport (limo etc) to church/ceremony location

Ushers to greet guests at ceremony and show to seats

Groom escorts mothers to their seats

Ceremony decorations- programs, aisle runners, cute signs etc

Bridesmaids + flower girls etc walk down the aisle (choose some music)

Dad walks bride down the aisle (choose some other music)

Make some promises (choose some words)

Wall back up the aisle (choose some more music, get some petals, bubbles etc thrown at you)

‘receiving line’ -i think that’s what its called. Where you go say hi to people.

Cocktail hour – people eat hor dourves and drink alcohol while the bridal party go get photos taken, more decorations and music

Guests arrive at reception – LOTS of decorations. Signature cocktails, guest book ideas, favours for guests, dessert buffet table, gifts table + cards box, dancefloor, DJ/MC, seating chart, place cards.

MC announces bridal party entrance (choose more music)

Food, speeches, first dance, more food, father daughter dance, cake cutting, bouquet toss & garter throw. (we had our reception at a Greek restaurant so there was a LOT of dancing and plate smashing in between all these events. The money dress thing would prob go before the bouquet/garter) eat cake (or give as takeaway), greet guests espesh OOTs

People get drunk and have lots of fun with loved ones

Bride and Groom farewell – sparklers, ribbons, more bubbles, joined arms archway thing etc

Transport for bride & groom

Optional after party or day after breakfast/brunch

Honeymoon WOOT WOOT

Send thank you cards
