Informal Ceremony Ideas For Modern Brides
If formal events make you feel uncomfortable throwing an informal wedding can be as easy as hosting a family dinner or a friendly party. But what do you do with the ceremony? Well, there are quite a few ideas.
If you want both your ceremony and reception be fun and informal hiring a fun officiant can help make the whole affair fun and light-hearted. Talk to your officiant about excluding vows if you are private people and ask to go over the fun Do’s instead.
Pet Ring Bear-er
If you have a pet and love it to bits, it’s already a part of your life, so you can totally make the little guy your ring bearer or simply keep it in your arms to make the atmosphere less pompous and straight-faced.
Include Your Own Ceremony
Different cultures have their own wedding ceremonies. Go ahead and swap them for something personal like a unity project, tree-planting, hand-fasting or any other ceremony you can come up with expressing your interests and mutual hobbies.
Serenade Instead of Reading Vows
Even if you don’t plan on having karaoke, sing your vows to each other. Be as creative or silly as you want. It’s your wedding, so do whatever makes you more happy and comfortable.
Set a fun tone to the ceremony by making an entrance with all of your five dogs accompanying you or come in on horse, by boat, or motorcycle depending on your ceremony venue.
Keep It Secret
If you don’t want your friends and family make a big deal out of it, keep your wedding a secret and invite them to your surprise nuptials where you will quickly say I dos and have a ton of fun with an informal buffet or a cocktail.
Choose Unusual Venue
Have an unusual, intimate ceremony somewhere in the mountains or other unusual location and hold the reception later. Thus you can enjoy a moment of privacy in an unforgettable location and have as relaxed and fun reception as you like.
