Have your bridesmaids carry something else instead of boring old flowers. Vintage books or matching lanterns in their hands will add a dash of personality to the wedding procession. Baskets of fruits in a garden wedding or wheat in a farm wedding are also options you can consider.

9. Literally tie the knot

There are fun wedding ceremony ideas, and there are quirky unconventional ones. Here’s one idea that will make you smile. Why don’t you and your partner have a knot tying ceremony in the beginning? Such a ceremony involves the couple tying a knot together, so strong that it cannot be undone. It is different and fun, and yet so very charming that it will touch your guests.

10. Maybe funny cue cards for your guests

Weddings don’t always have to be somber. If you’re running out of wedding ceremony ideas you could always add some drama and lots of laughs to your ceremony. Get someone to hold up cue cards during the ceremony. Write things like “forced laughter” or “obligatory tears.” Your family and friends will be nudging each other in amazement instead of yawning or nodding off to sleep!

11. Set up a picnic instead of a buffet

If you’re having an outdoor wedding, why not give it a completely outdoorsy feel by setting up picnic baskets and blankets instead of tables? It gives you and your guests a relaxed, informal way of enjoying scrumptious food.

12. Why not have a whiskey dispenser right beside the water dispenser?

Your guests will be amused when they see that they can serve themselves whiskey straight from a dispenser. In fact, drink dispensers at weddings should be a thing! Make it even more special by placing a handwritten tag with a quirky quote about whiskey.

13. Or go the Russian way with a bottle of vodka on every table

Take a cue from the Russians and place bottles of vodka on each table. Your guests will not have to get up for a drink, and will not miss any minute of your beautiful ceremony.

14. Get your guests to compete

Organizing a few games like croquet is a great way to involve the people you’ve invited to the ceremony. Set aside some time for some wedding-themed games before the ceremony begins. It’s some extra entertainment and your guests will love you for it.
