Making The Most Of Your Special Moment At The Altar

Few moments during your wedding will feel as magical as when you are in front of all your guests at the altar. Different people follow different practices during the ceremony, which can impact how long this portion of your wedding actually lasts. No matter what you choose to do, or choose to skip, you should try to make the most of this experience. When preparing for your ceremony, you can find several opportunities to personalize the experience. That can involve the decorations you use at the altar, the creation of your own vows, and selecting the officiant who feels perfect for your special day.

Finding The Right Officiant For Your Wedding

Who should you trust to officiate your wedding? Texas Old Town can recommend trusted people on our vendors page, if you are struggling in search to find someone. What you can also do is turn to friends and family, as you may have someone who is ordained (or willing to be ordained) willing to take on the role. Having someone who knows both of you at the altar can add a personal touch to your celebration; this person can also approach the role with an inside view of your relationship.

Should We Exchange Our Own Vows?

Creating your own vows can allow you to highlight what makes your union unique. With that said, there is nothing wrong with reciting traditional vows, particularly if you see yourself as a traditional person. For those who do pursue personalized vows, these tips can make the process easier:

  • While you do not have to share the content of your speeches, you and your partner should discuss what you want to do for length, and tone.
  • If you are struggling to focus your words, remember that your vow is a promise – using the phrase “I promise to” to frame your feelings can help you organize your thoughts and emotions more easily into words.
  • If you are worried about forgetting or skipping parts of your vows, write them down on notepaper that you can discreetly hold.
