Sweet Ways to Make Your Wedding Ceremony More Personal

Your wedding ceremony is a massive wedding day highlight! It’s also the part of the day when you become a married couple and exchange those all important vows. That’s why it can be lovely to make the space and ceremony as special as can be. There are some gorgeous ways to make your wedding ceremony more personal from signs and accessories to carefully chosen readings and songs. Check out some beautiful inspo below…

Include Signs

We love signs and think they’re one of the best ways to make your ceremony more personal. There are so many options too from entrance signs for the little ones to seating signs and pretty welcome sign posts like the above. A welcome sign is a gorgeous touch and we love the idea of adding some extra deets like the bridal party, your parents names and others participating in your special day!

Invest in a Pretty Ring Box

Your rings play an important part in your ceremony so make sure they travel to the altar in style with a pretty ring box. We’re a big fan of River Lane Memories for ring boxes – they have a gorgeous range of personalised boxes that are made for weddings. Check them out here.

Include Readings & Songs that Mean Something to You

When it comes to making your wedding ceremony that little bit more personal, spend some time choosing your songs and reading choices. They’re a great way to make your day all about you. You can include a song that has a special place in your heart or a reading that sums up how you feel about each other. Check out some beautiful music options here.

Personalise Your Pew Ends

Pew ends are a lovely way to spruce up your aisles and when we saw this idea, we though it was genius! Photos are the perfect way to personalise your day so why not used some framed pics from your relationship as pew ends!

Personalise Your Candles

The candle lighting ceremony is a great chance to add that personal touch with candles personalised with your names, wedding date or even an illustration. You can pick up beautiful personalised candles from Irish companies Candles with Character and Wogansecrets.

For many people, their wedding day can be tinged with sadness if there’s some special people that are no longer with them. One way to honour these lost loved ones is with a special sign and seat dedicated to them. You’ll also find lots of other beautiful ways to honour lost loves ones at your wedding here.

Include an Anniversary Box

We loved how Carly and Gerard included an anniversary box  in their wedding ceremony. Their anniversary box held a love letter as well as a special wine that they selected together before the ceremony. You can look forward to opening it on your fifth wedding anniversary!

Have a Special Exit

You will be absolutely buzzing walking down the aisle as a newly married couple so it can be nice to make it stand out with a special exit! There’s some awesome ways to get guests involved and create a happy, upbeat exit such as blowing bubbles, waving wands or getting everyone to create an arch with hurls if you’re a sports fans.
