Here are a few things to think about and discuss:

Creating the Perfect Ceremony
  • Where will our wedding be?
  • How many guests will we have?
  • Will there be a flower girl or a ring-bearer?
  • Who will walk with the bride during the processional?
  • Do we want special music or readings during the ceremony?
  • Will we be writing our own vows?
  • Do we want special ceremony elements such as a unity candle, sand ceremony or handfasting?
  • Do we prefer a spiritual tone with prayers and blessings or a more civil style ceremony?
  • What traditions from our families’ ethnic heritage do we want to include?


What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?  ~ George Eliot
