St. Paul wedding venueHere are some more ideas for making your intimate wedding even more special and personal.

  • Ring Blessing: The wedding rings may be placed in a small decorative bag and passed among the guests, who are invited to bless the rings or say a small prayer over them.
  • Personalized Music: There’s no need to stick to the tradition music choices. Go with traditional, contemporary, jazz—whatever music genre you like—to reflect the start of your life together and add personality to the ceremony.
  • Bouquet Assembly: Family members and special friends are each given a flower and stand at the edge of the aisle as the ceremony is about to start. As the bride walks down the aisle, they each give her their flower, so she assembles the bouquet as she proceeds down the aisle.
  • Special Words: Designate one person to be in charge of collecting special memories or thoughts about the couple before the wedding. During the ceremony, that person compiles the thoughts and memories and reads them to the bride and groom.
  • Honor Your Heritage: Incorporating an ethnic tradition into your wedding ceremony can make it unique. For example, a bride who’s part Czechoslovakian may choose to have a rosemary wreath in her hair rather than a veil. Brides or grooms with a Filipino background may include the tradition of draping a lasso and veil around them to signify their union. If the bride or groom has an African heritage, they may choose to have their wrists bound together as part of the ceremony.
