Your wedding ceremony should have a theme. A theme makes the whole ceremony cohesive and much easier to create. For example, is your message, “We took a journey together and this is the ultimate journey we start today,” or “Our love has been tested and today we reaffirm our connection,” or “Woo-hoo! Finally!” Is your tone nostalgic? Forward thinking? Is your ceremony aimed toward the community of loved ones there to celebrate and witness your love, or more about the team of two you’ve created with your partner? Whether you want to go totally non-traditional and build your own format or follow traditional formats, I’d like to stress this point…don’t be overwhelmed! I am here, lovely readers, to help you build your ceremonies.
