Personalizing Your Ceremony

Martha Stewart Weddings, Spring 2005

They are the familiar wedding traditions -- walking down the aisle, exchanging rings, reciting vows, and so on -- and they have been practiced by countless brides and grooms for hundreds of years. This history is what makes them great -- it's an experience that couples share with their parents and grandparents, friends, and ancestors.But for a wedding ceremony to be truly personal, it must do more than run through all the matrimonial rituals; it must also reflect you as a couple. Between honoring your cultural heritage and choosing original readings, there are many ways to make the event uniquely your own.
