The love for your fiancé or groom is no doubt very special and unique, and there is no arguing that marriage - one way or the other - is going to be a life altering experience for the two of you. For that reason it is worth putting some extra effort into planning the actual ceremony. Exchanging vows and having beautiful wedding readings is often an important part of the mix.

Traditionally speaking

What is considered a traditional ceremony vary depending on the culture and many national customs may also have fused over time.

In the classic Persian wedding for example, both the bride and the groom would dress in white with wreaths of flower on their necks, looking quite similar to the Hawaiian Lei. These wreaths of flower are still worn in modern wedding ceremonies in Pakistan (once an integral part of the great Persian Empire), but it is no longer present in the Iranian wedding ceremony.

In western countries various readings and exchanges of vows are most often a part of the ceremony. These days couples often add their own vows during a ceremony and music and specially selected readings are considered important.

Music will indeed make almost any event soar to new heights, and weddings are not the exception. A beautiful musical touch can be something that both you and your guests can appreciate for a long time afterwards. When dealing with professional musicians you should find that they usually are very good at delivering tunes that will fit any part of the ceremony just perfectly. Some professionals in the industry will also be happy to help you pick the appropriate music.

Wedding readings with that special touch

Unless you are going to the closest “Quickie-wed" in Las Vegas you should reserve plenty of time to create a custom ceremony after the vows have been exchanged. Couples can seize the opportunity to unite not just their hearts, lives and families, but to unite their very beings. Couples often like to take separate religious vows at each of their given religious houses. Multicultural weddings are often very thorough and last several days in order to accommodate both cultures and events.

As for the wedding readings you have many exciting alternatives to choose from, ranging from classical ones from or more unusual ones. Typical sources are the bible, fiction and poetry.

For example this classical from the “Song of Solomon", King James Bible version:

My beloved spake, and said unto me,

Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over, and gone.

The flowers appear on the earth, the time of the

singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle

is heard in the land.

The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the

vines with the tender grape give a good smell.

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away
