Ceremonies: Blending Tradition & Invention

In our deliciously modern times, you can choose to blend tradition and invention in your ceremony to express who you are together. Here's a short fun list to get you started. However you mix it...your special blend will taste great!

Tradition

Light one candle together
Drink wine from one glass
Break one glass
Read a poem or scripture
Ribbon your wrists together
Pray together
Procession with a loved song




Invention

Touch your foreheads together
Pass your rings for blessing
Guests hug in unison
Write your own vows
Read surprise letters to each other
Draw an image together at the altar
Wedding party singing to you
Dance to a live song
Process or Recess while singing
