  • Wear your mother's or grandmother's wedding dress. If age has discolored it, take it to a bridal gown restorer to have it cleaned and restored. Another special touch would be to carry a replica of your mother's or grandmother's bridal bouquet.
  • Hang old wedding photos of your guests at the end of each pew. Hang with a pretty ribbon that matches your color scheme. Guests can guess who is who!
  • As each guest arrives to the ceremony, have a groomsmen hand a piece of fabric. Each guest can then sign their name and write a message to the bride and groom. After the wedding, sew the squares together to make a very special quilt.
  • After the wedding ceremony, if possible, chime the bells of the church while all your family and friends are gathered together giving you best wishes.
  • If you have children from a previous marriage, allow each to write their own wedding vows for the ceremony.
  • After you exchange your vows, have your parents come up to the altar with you and tell them how special they are to you.
  • At the end of the ceremony, hand each mother a rose.
  • Have all your guests sign a magnum of champagne and celebrate your first anniversary with it.
  • Take the handkerchief that your mother or grandmother carried on their wedding day and tuck it into your bouquet or have it sewn into the hem of your dress.
  • Right after the ceremony, gather all your guests on the steps of the church and have your photographer or a friend take a group shot. Then make copies and send to your guests along with your thank you notes.
