What a great question! One of the things that was bumming me out a few months ago is that I began to feel like our wedding was too cookie-cutter because of its size and the expectations of FI’s family.

We’ve added really personal touches to our ceremony, including a reading that is not about love or weddings, but is instead about faith and social justice (from Isaiah 58).

So glad that you asked.  Not that my wedding will stand out from the rest.  I do plan on just a couple unique touches, in my opinion.

 

The song that we are walking down the aisle to (including the bridal party) Is an instrumental version of “Only Time” originally by Enya, but the group is called 12 Girl Band.  Has an asian flare to it.

 

The second thing I am going to do is sing the father-daughter dance song.  No, I’m not going up there with a mic.  I am going to go to a local recording studio to sing it and have it recorded.  I trully love my dad.

Hmm. Unique… well, it’s one of only 4 weddings so far at this venue, I believe… that makes it pretty different.

That’s really hard! I mean, obviously it’s different because it’s ours, because we’re making choices… but it’s hard to pinpoint, exactly.

@Wendy- wow thats awesome you are recording your dance song for your Dad! amazing!

i guess i’m not doing anything tooo unique….a few touches maybe here and there that touch upon how long we’ve been together. Photos of us when we were younger and that sort of thing πŸ˜€

Ours is unique b/c we’re an encore bride and groom and we’re having a destination wedding!  We’re marrying in the same church his parents did exactly 50 years ago this summer in FL!

Also, we’re having a unique type of entertainment at our venue..keeping it hush hush until then!

I’m also having a shell wedding bouquet with some organza flowers in it..may have some real roses wired into it also around the edge by the florist! (garden roses).

Our exit and entrance to the reception is going to be by boat!  I think that’s fun and a bit unique too!

My cousin is officiating the ceremony, we’re doing a blessing of the hands prayer, we’re taking trolley rides afterwards, and I am wearing my mom’s veil.  We’re only the 2nd wedding we’ve attended with a photobooth, and we’re skipping the bouquet toss.

I think we’re doing lots of unique things!  Maybe not in the wedding blog world, but definitely in the real wedding world!

One of the unique things about my wedding will be the poker table set up after dinner.  We are getting married at a restaurant in my hometown, where I used to work.  I learned to play poker while working there, and still love to play.  As an homage to my past (and to give guests who don’t love dancing something to do), we’re setting up a poker table on the outside deck.

We’re getting married on my grandparents’ anniversary so we’re having them renew their vows right before we say our own. And I’m working on getting a vintage fire truck to take us from the church to the reception venue (FI is a firefighter). My brother is walking me down the aisle and I’m dancing with my mom. Other than that, nothing too unique. Just a few things here and there.

We got married at the Arecibo Observatory, and ours was the very first wedding ceremony they’d ever had there, so I think that makes it pretty unique =)

We’re including our love of cooking/baking into the theme, so it’s pretty unique I think…

junebride: thanks! we’re really excited about it! It’s their 50th anniversary too, so we want it to be very special for them. I’ve been specifically told by my grandmother that getting them a cake is not allowed. πŸ™‚ Instead we’re adding a line to the prayer of the faithful for them during our ceremony and I’m going to give a toast for them at the reception. 

it’s great that you’ll have your day so close to your grandparents’ as well! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

There are a few things that my family will think is unique, like our mini guest books on each table instead of a traditional book.  But my wedding doesn’t have anything that will really make people think “wow.”  Now I’ll have to try to think of something to do.

I don’t know how unique this sounds on here…but my friends are pretty excited.  We’re having an on-site BBQ caterer in a park on the lake with pretty mountain views.

I’m hoping our rehearsal “dinner” will be catered sammiches at a beach the day before the wedding (we’ll see if the uber-traditional Future Mother-In-Law agrees).

And current plans are for a bowling afterparty (our venue kicks us out at 8pm).  I wish the photog could join…I’d love pro pics of my gown and bowling shoes!
