Ceremony Entrance Ideas
The beginning of your wedding day is extraordinary. It is the moment when you walk down the aisle. You are making a fresh start in your life. The following are some suggestions that can make it even more unique: no matter where your wedding is held- in a chapel, a ballroom, or a backyard!
1. No Sides, Only Brides!
During the wedding ceremony, your guests do not have to take a position on anything; this sign is an excellent way to bring that point home. It’s all about love and coming together, no matter who you are.
2. Go Full Circle
Why not do away with the aisle and have everyone sit in a circle? It will reflect the support and connection that everyone will have with you as a couple. Plus, it will allow people to enter from two sides at once, so there won’t be any need for a “who walks in first” conversation.
3. Come Together
When it comes to gay weddings, one of the most common questions is, “who walks down the aisle first?” But if you don’t want to choose between having an aisle or not, here is a new idea. The brides can enter together.
You’ll need to have enough space, especially if you’re accommodating large wedding dresses. But it’s always moving to see the upcoming unity shown by arriving arm in arm.
4. Take A Colorful Rain Check
You should have a Plan B if it rains on your wedding day. If your Plan B is to have the ceremony outside under umbrellas, then you should choose rainbow umbrellas to show your pride. They will add a little color to your wedding day without being too over the top.
Even if it doesn’t rain, you can still do a photo shoot with your bridal party or just you and your bridesmaids. Hold these cute umbrellas.
5. A Glamorous Mrs and Mrs
Suppose you are looking for a way to show pride in your upcoming marriage. You might consider adding this golden decoration to your wedding ceremony or reception. It prominently displays the title of ‘married couple’ and would be a great way to show your commitment to each other.
6. This Ceremony Arch That Pops
Your bride-to-be makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. It’s only natural that you want to feel that way when you walk down the aisle too! If your wedding ceremony is in a church that doesn’t allow arches, consider using it as the entranceway for your reception instead.
7. Have A Heart
For a softer take on incorporating a “Mrs. and Mrs.” at your wedding, this idea of having it engraved on your wedding ring display is a great choice. The contrast between the white wood and black inscription makes the words stand out (and still works with this couple’s beach theme). The best part is that, unless you’re the ring bearer, it’ll be a sweet little secret just for the two of you to see those words as you prepare to exchange rings.
8. Balance Out The Bouquet
Many think having one bride’s bouquet and the other’s flower crown is a good idea. This way, it keeps things simple and is less expensive. But you don’t have to do this if you don’t want to. You can also ask your florist if they can do something like this for you.
9. Or Go Full Flower Power!
These brides have put a lot of work into their flower coordination. The detail in their bouquets and the garland on top of the ceremony hexagon is stunning! Not only do the flowers match, but the leaf pattern also matches the lace on their dresses.
The Nitty-Gritty: Ceremony Script/Reading Ideas
So far, we have talked about the first time you see each other as you walk down the aisle and the grand decorations. Let’s talk about the smaller details that tie everything together and make your big day look like what you dreamed of.
10. Remembering Love Wins
You can choose how your ceremony flows, even for religious ceremonies. You also have some say in what the officiant says.
One way to make your wedding unique is to write your vows. If you want gender-neutral vows, you could include a quote from the day when love won, and marriage equality became a possibility for everyone.
11. Subtle and Sweet
For something a bit more spiritual, we believe that this reading might seamlessly blend into any lesbian wedding ceremony. It is without a doubt one of our favorite lesbian wedding ceremony readings since it so brilliantly shows the power of love to transform us into our best selves.
12. A Promise Is A Promise
Try this passage if you have trouble thinking of vows for your same-sex wedding. It removes the old “in sickness and in health” vow and has the brides making promises that align with deep, committed love. We particularly love the promise of always letting your partner see through the window of your world into your fears, dreams, and feelings.
13. Tell Your Story
Your ceremony is your time to celebrate your relationship. You can add readings and vows, but you can also tell the story of how you met and how it made you feel. This beautiful couple did just that in their wedding video.
It makes everything more remarkable when you remember how you and your friends or family have come to be where you are. Plus, it gives your friends and family a chance to share in the joy of your relationship.
14. Hold Fast
We usually follow Beyoncé’s advice during wedding ceremonies (put a ring on it). Still, suppose you’re looking for a different way to show devotion and connection. In that case, a handfasting ceremony can be a great option. It’s another opportunity to add something personal to your wedding, like this couple tying in their woodland theme with the cord’s earthy tones and natural touches.
So Long, Farewell: Ceremony Exit Ideas
Congratulations, you’ve married, cut the cake, and danced the night away with your wedding party! Last but not least, let’s speak about how to make your departure memorable! After all, it’s the final opportunity for your photographer to snap some truly incredible photographs!
15. Out With A Bang
We can’t choose what we love more about this happy couple: the simple and easy phrasing of “you may kiss your wife” or the dazzling burst of golden streamers that go off for the exit.
16. Or Out With A Bomb!
You can have fireworks to make your wedding celebrations more exciting. It is a popular idea on Pinterest and will look great in your wedding photos.
Vibrant hues are an excellent method to convey the joy and enthusiasm that characterize lesbian weddings. This happy couple expressed their love for one another and their happiness with the help of some colorful smoke bombs. In the end, it was an excellent choice for everyone involved. Rice and confetti cannot compete.
