Speaking uniquely during your wedding is obviously a figurative term, as people would look at you strangely if you started speaking in Elven when giving your vows. When going over the pre-wedding preparation, people commonly want their wedding ceremonies and receptions to be memorable in both their memories and their guests’ memories. Sometimes the latter can be difficult; especially if your guests are attending multiple weddings in a short amount of time.
And that is how it usually goes, is it not? You get to your mid-twenties and suddenly all of your friends and family members close in age are tying the knot. Lucky for you, Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe has seen successful and original wedding ceremonies and receptions as a wedding officiant in Oklahoma, and she is willing to share a few tips on how to have your own innovative wedding.
Create Your Own Colors
Everyone has seen the standard white wedding dress and black tux wedding. The bridesmaids all have matching dresses, and the groomsmen wear the same crisp and clean-cut tuxes. This is definitely a beautiful wedding if you like the old fashioned ways, but if you are willing to try something new then why the hell not? As a wedding officiant in OKC, Tinsley Keefe has seen a number of unique ideas from the women wearing black dresses and the grooms wearing white tuxes to everyone wearing a wide array of different colors.
Whether you come up with a theme that everyone can dress to or you get specific and have your entire wedding party show up as colors of the rainbow – just be creative and have fun with it. There is no going wrong unless you instruct everyone to show up naked. And even then . . . who knows?
Be Artistic with Your Vows
This one is a given. Tinsley Keefe has heard a variety of beautiful vows thanks to her time as a wedding officiant in Oklahoma City, but the most memorable ones are always the most innovative ones. The best thing to do is be humorous and sincere at the same time. You want to get a nice blend of the two, and in the end the outcome will have your other half smiling and laughing and hopefully the guests too.
If you have the talent, sing your vows. The creativity does not have to lie solely in the words you write; it can be in the way you relay them. Whether you come up with something on the spot or you spend weeks preparing – if your heart is in it, the outcome will be ideal.
Involve the Guests
One of the most unique situations Tinsley Ariana Taylor Keefe has come across at a wedding ceremony in Oklahoma City involves the wedding party including the guests for different parts of the ceremony and reception. They helped the groom relay his vows that had the bride wiping away happy tears. They sang the bride in and the married couple out, and at the reception the entertainment was karaoke. If you involve your guests, your wedding day will be unique no matter how you do it.
