5 Moments to Include in Your Wedding Ceremony

Don’t forget to include these essentials.

A List to Remember for the Day You’ll Never Forget

At Unique by Design, we are truly passionate about weddings - from the planning stages to the big day itself. Having helped countless couples create their dream weddings, we have gained invaluable insights into what makes a ceremony truly special. We believe that certain elements should always be included, and we would love to share these with you. So, take a look, get inspired, and let us know which of our suggestions you would like to incorporate into your own wedding celebration!

#1: Personalized Programs

We absolutely love finding ways to create a personalized and memorable experience for you and your guests on your wedding day. One of our top suggestions is to customize your wedding programs or itinerary with the help of a third-party designer, if needed. By incorporating unique fonts, colors, and icons that reflect your wedding's overall theme and aesthetic, your guests will not only feel more connected to your special day, but they will also have all the necessary information about the ceremony at their fingertips. This is also an excellent opportunity to showcase any special messages, instructions, or customized details that will further enhance the magic of your wedding day.

#2: Favors & Welcome Bags

Creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for your guests and loved ones is an essential part of any wedding celebration. One way to accomplish this is by providing special and thoughtful welcome bags or wedding favors. The possibilities for creativity are truly endless when it comes to choosing what to include for your guests. Welcome bags are especially fitting for weekend weddings that involve multiple days at a venue or destination and can be paired with additional favors. Alternatively, if your wedding is a single day and night affair, it's a great idea to focus on favors that align with your wedding's theme and will be enjoyable for your guests. Our team is always happy to offer some inspiration, so don’t hesitate to reach out and let us help you create the perfect wedding favors or welcome bags!

#3: The Ring Bearer

One of the most adorable and significant aspects of your wedding day is undoubtedly the Ring Bearer delivering the rings. Recently, this element of the ceremony has experienced a bit of a revival, with couples getting more creative than ever before in how they execute this momentous task. While you can always stick to having a niece, nephew, or your own child carry the rings, there are so many other fun and unique options to consider.

We have seen pets like cats and dogs delivering the rings, and even other animals such as turtles! You can also consider having a special or playful outfit for your Ring Bearer to make this moment even more unforgettable. We would love to help you brainstorm even more ways to make your rings arrive in style, so don't hesitate to contact us for some creative inspiration!

#4: Write Your Own Vows

There is no one who knows your love story better than you do. That's why we highly encourage couples to consider writing their own wedding vows. This is an opportunity to truly connect with your partner and create a more intimate experience for your guests. While crafting your vows may take some time, it's definitely worth it. Our pro-tip is to start early in the planning process, and take the time to reflect on what you want to say.

We've even seen some couples create cute collages of their handwritten vows after the ceremony, which is a romantic and sentimental way to memorialize a day filled with love. So don't be afraid to get creative with your vows and make them truly reflective of your unique love story. And if you need any help or inspiration along the way, our team is always here to offer some guidance.

#5: Spice Up the Big Walk

The classic walk down the aisle is undergoing some modern (and dare we say, fun) changes. While the traditional format involves the groom arriving first, followed by the bridal party, culminating in the grand reveal of the bride, we encourage you to consider switching things up. We've seen some creative ideas, such as the bride and groom walking together to their favorite song or incorporating routines that get guests and family excited and involved in the big walk down the aisle. There are so many ways to make this moment truly unique and reflective of your personality and love story.

This same approach can also be applied to the walk out after you say, ‘I Do.’ Instead of the traditional throwing of rice, consider using ribbons, sparklers, or anything else that makes sense for your wedding and matches your vibe.
