Be your self 15 different ways...

Here are a few unconventional ceremony ideas to take you down the aisle less traveled.
Be different try some of these

1...Have your guests sit or stand in a circle around you during your wedding vows.

2...Have both parents walk you down the aisle,be the rose in the middle.

3...Have your husband-to-be escort you to the altar.

4... Don’t have bridesmaids or groomsman

5...Have an uneven number of attendants. (Maybe you just want a maid of honor, but he wants four groomsmen.)

6...Have a “man of honor” instead of a maid of honor. (Your brother? A good male friend?)

7...Have the groom choose a “best woman.” (His sister? A good female friend?)

8...Don’t wear a veil or have flowers.

9...Have bridesmaids carry candles instead of bouquets as they walk down the aisle.

10...Write your own vows. Words from you are so much more powerful and meaningful.

11...Have a ring warming. (You ask whats a ring warming??? There are different versions of this, but generally the rings are placed in a small bag and are passed around to each guest prior to the ring exchange. Each guest blesses the rings or says a prayer.)

12...Choose unconventional processional and/or recessional music. (Love U2? Use a favorite U2 song. Love Leonard Cohen? Choose one of his songs. You don’t have to stick with boring old Pachelbel’s Canon or Ode to Joy.)

13...Let your guests mingle over cocktails before the ceremony. (Great if you are not having a church wedding.)

14...Greet guests as they arrive at the wedding ceremony site.

15...Face your guests during your vows, they want to see and hear you

Hope this info is good & helpful...
