How can you have a ceremony with a difference? A ceremony that will be remembered long after others have been and gone? A ceremony that speaks in such a special individualized way that it reflects both of you.....your thoughts, words, passions, dreams and aspirations? Have you considered .......... * Having a ceremony that reflects the spiritual side of your being? Buddhist inspired perhaps......even if it’s just your vows. * Having a ceremony that reflects your fun loving side. A theme wedding perhaps or medieval costumes for everyone? * Your venue. Will your venue reflect or incorporate any part of your relationship? The place where you met? The magical moments of your first kiss? Embracing nature by a lake, river or bushland? * Having friends and relatives participate in your gay marriage ceremony? Having someone write a piece of music or a song for you. * Including a ritual to recognize traditional owners of the land, departed loved ones or to acknowledge children in your new relationship. * Making your celebration especially intimate by eloping to a romantic hideaway locally or overseas. * Giving each other bracelets or a gift in the Buddhist tradition.....instead of traditional rings. * Singing of personally written vows to one another after keeping them a secret until the last moment. * Arriving at your ceremony with all your guests in one happy noisy group! * Participating in your ceremony while standing in the middle of a circle....being welcomed by each other's families after the pronouncement of you being husband and wife.....or legally recognized partners. These suggestions will help prepare you for your Same Sex Wedding Ceremony with a difference.
