How To Have The Best. Ceremony. Ever.

No two ceremonies should ever be alike (and, frankly, that’s not always easy to do in this Pinterest-obsessed world we live in). But if you can pinpoint what it is that speaks to you as a couple (and then maybe not literally Pin it for the whole world to see, copy, steal before you get a chance to show it off), you just might be able to nab the prize for best-ever ceremony idea. The bestest ceremonies are ones that really feel, for lack of a better word, special. Ones that suck the guests into an almost-uncomfortably close level of intimacy with the soon-to-be-weds. Ones that make you feel like you’ve known the couple for their entire lives (and maybe you have) and that everything seen and spoken is pure, raw, real. This kind of personalization transcends the wedding vows and becomes all about the nitty-gritty decor and details. The damn-why-didn’t-I-think-of-that?! ideas.

We scoured the Internet to find our favorite ways real brides got their guests swooning over their ceremony details. We know what they say—copying is the sincerest form of flattery, right?—but don’t just take our word (or their word for that matter) on it. Use these best-of ideas as inspiration and get your fab team (MOH, MIL, wedding vendors, whomever) together for a little pow-wow on how to WOW your guests with something even more genius.
