Custom Touches for Today's Weddings

Seat the guests of the bride and groom together. This works especially well when there are far more guests on one side than on the other.

The bride and groom can greet the guests as they enter the church. This will eliminate the need for a receiving line and often relieves some stress of the day.

The groom can escort his parents and the mother and/or father of the bride down the aisle.

The bride and groom can come down the aisle together.

The bride and groom can face each other (they can hold hands) while they exchange vows.

At the recession, the immediate families of the bride and groom can follow the bride and groom as they leave the altar, then the rest of the bridal party comes up the aisle.

Ring the church bells at the end of the ceremony.

The bride and groom can propose toasts to their parents or any other special individuals at the reception.

The parents, or other individuals, can also make toasts.
