“My inspiration derives from my belief that the bride glows on her wedding day with a halo, making her the center of a spiritual event. She is a symbol of devotion and tradition. Her dress reflects the eternal feelings she emanates with shiny and magical look: It is a fashion icon. I want my brides to look heavenly on this most important day of her life.” —Inbal Dror

“In a world where we are often fed with fake news, fake looks, fake truth… the only way to find our paths is to be real. Real with ourselves. Real from the inside out. Just Real. I have chosen to present ‘Real’ as a mosaic of different silhouettes and a combination of almost every fabric there is in bridal. This collection will walk down the runway on a variety of models representing almost every bride from every culture, color, and size. As real as can be, keeping in mind that the only way to achieve perfection is to accept our perfect selves as they already are—Real.” —Pnina Tornai

Layers of delicately floating tulle are accented with 3D textures and metallic floral embroidery. Jumpsuits, bustiers and illusion necklines have been perfectly introduced into the collection for a nod to the present-day bride.

Frothy concoctions are grounded in a focus on form; gowns are filled with sparkle and structure allowing brides to toe the line between classic yet contemporary, glamorous yet refined. Detachable bows have a starring role as do shoulder toppers, dramatic sleeves, and removable trains. Think Grace Kelly meets Swan Lake with a dash of joie de vivre and a lot of drama!”

Michael Fausto

After honing his skills in the ateliers of luxury houses across New York and Italy, designer Michael Fausto decided to embark on creating a collection of his own vision.

The debut Michael Fausto collection draws inspiration from the jewel box that is Capri. An unending spring of life and beauty, the island has been a magnet for artists, poets, socialites, and more for years. Whether you are having a freshly grilled fished at La Fontelina, or envisioning Homer’s sirens bathing near the Faraglioni, Capri offers glamour and excitement to everyone. The inspiration was interpreted into undulating drapes of duchess satin, intricate beading of bougainvillea, and dramatic silhouettes.

Michael Fausto aims to serve the modern heroine. Delivering a refined sensibility coupled with a flare for drama, this clothing is made to exalt women. Since the world began, women have worn the title of creator, mother, lover, destroyer, and countless more; and it is our goal to celebrate every incarnation.

For fall 2020 Savannah Miller has explored the use of texture to create a thoroughly modern collection for the alternative, fashion conscious bride.

If there is something that Sophie et Voilà is proud of, it is its origin, its land and the culture that emerges from it. It is this timeless culture that, in one way or another, inspires our collections, because we carry it inside us and it is a fundamental part of who we are.

Read on to find helpful suggestions for creative and beautiful wedding traditions and rituals to make your wedding ceremony an event to remember. Make the planning the wedding fun so you can focus on the more mundane stuff like how to change last name after the wedding.

We will help you come up with special and unique ideas for the wedding ceremony. No matter what your religious background or upbringing, you will be able to incorporate at least one of these wedding ceremony ideas and traditions into your wedding day programme.

Inspiring Traditional and Modern Wedding Ceremony Ideas

Light Your Unity Candle

Source: Instagram@elizabethmessina

The unity candle ceremony is one of the most meaningful moments of the wedding ceremony. It symbolizes the joining together of two separate lives as one. It has its origins in Judeo-Christian faith but has become a part of secular weddings over the years.

In the unity candle ceremony, the bride and groom each take a lit candle. Then they together light the unity candle. Other variations of this tradition include the parents of the bride and/or groom, lighting the unity candle. Some couples also involve their children in the unity candle lighting. Another variation of wedding rituals with unity candles includes having all of your guests light a unity candle as they enter, saying a prayer or blessing for you as a newly married couple.

You can also write each other love letters, prior to your wedding day. You would then seal them inside a wooden box. You could also include some other mementos of your wedding such as your wedding day program and an invitation. You would then open your wedding day time capsule on a milestone anniversary and read each other’s love letters from your wedding day.

Sand Wedding Ceremonies

Source: Instagram@dreamweddingconcierge

Sand wedding ceremonies are the perfect alternative for those who do not wish to use a unity candle. They are a great option for an outdoor wedding where lighting a candle might not be possible. In a sand ceremony, the bride and groom each take a different color of sand and take turns pouring them into a glass bottle or vase. You can also have other family members join in on the sand ceremony.

The colors of sand are entirely up to you. A lot of couples use sand from a place that is meaningful to them. This could be a favorite childhood beach or a place they vacationed as a couple. The sand then blends to become one. You would proudly display the sand vase or bottle in your home as a symbol of your love. Remember to add collecting your sand to your wedding list to do.

If you are looking for an alternative to unity candles or sand ceremony, you can create your own spice. As a couple, you would choose up to seven spices that symbolize your dreams and hopes for your marriage and blend them into a special glass bottle. For example, paprika symbolizes passion and nutmeg, romance. You would then later use the spice for cooking as a married couple.

Water Blending

Similar to the sand ceremony, you would blend together two separate colors of water to form one color to symbolize your marriage. It is recommended that you experiment with different colors beforehand.

Tie The God’s Knot And Handfasting

Source: Instagram@pablobeglez

Other time-honored wedding ceremonies traditions include handfasting and the God’s knot.

The God’s knot is designed for a religious ceremony based on Ecclesiastes 4:12: “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” As a couple, you would braid three chords of rope together to form a God’s knot. This symbolizes that you and your spouse are allowing God to enter into your marriage. You would display the knot in a frame as a reminder of your committed to God and one another.

The Handfasting Ceremony has its roots in Celtic history. It has recently become very popular in modern weddings as the tying the knot ceremony. Either before, during or after your vows, you and your partner will hold each other’s wrist, with your opposite hand. This then forms the unity symbol. The officiant would then wrap a cord around them, trying it in a loose knot. You could use a rope, cord, ribbon or scarf or a piece of fabric from a family heirloom.

What Are The Things That Symbolize Family

Source: Heather Payne photography

If you have a blended family, such as children from previous marriages you may wish for them to take part in your wedding ceremony. Following is some suggestions for wedding ceremony ideas that include the entire family, such as it may be.

Unity Family Puzzle Board

You could have a special wooden puzzle created to symbolize you’re joining as a blended family. You would then assemble the unity puzzle together as a family during the wedding ceremony. Make sure to include symbols of unity.

Family Tree

You could either plant a tree a family during your wedding. Or perhaps you could each gather family photos and other things that symbolize family and make a “family tree” collage as part wedding ceremony. Both of these are cool wedding ideas that involve the entire family.

You could ask guests to bring pictures of the two of you as part of your gift registry ideas. During the ceremony, you could add these photos to your family tree or album.

Family Unity Painting

As a family, you could take turns painting a canvas during the ceremony. This would symbolize the blending of your families. You would then proudly display it in your family home.
