If you are getting married with a wedding celebrant, one of the many perks is that you’ll be able to incorporate a keepsake into your wedding ceremony. Keepsakes are a great way to remember your special day, years after the fact. There are plenty of different types of wedding ceremony keepsakes that will add a touch of romance and sentimentality to your special day.
A sand blending ceremony is a really unique and personal way to get married. At a sand blending ceremony, at least two types, or two colours, of sand are blended together to show the unity of two families. You can keep the sand blend forever as a memory of the day you said, ‘I Do’. This keepsake is perfect for couples who are getting married in Ireland from abroad (use sand from Ireland and your home town), or couples of different nationalities (use sand from your two homes).
This is one of our favourite wedding ceremony keepsakes. On the morning of your wedding day write a love letter to each other, and at your ceremony lock it in a wine box with a bottle of your favourite wine. Pick a wedding anniversary years from now that you can read each others letters and drink the wine together. If you are having marital trouble before that date, you can read the letters and remember why you fell in love.
At Marry Me Ireland, we can print off a special certificate or declaration that you and your partner can sign at your wedding ceremony. This keepsake can then be framed, along with your wedding vows, to keep forever.
If you are having a candle lighting ceremony, the candles can be used as wedding ceremony keepsakes. Candle lighting ceremonies are probably the most popular wedding ceremony requests we get along with handfasting ceremonies. We love the idea of keeping the candles to use at other life changing events, like christenings, baby naming ceremonies, or vow renewal ceremonies.
Here at Marry Me Ireland we have a wide variety of exceptional celebrants who can deliver the wedding ceremony of your dreams – traditional, unique or otherwise. So get in touch today and we can start planning your special day!
