I have done something a little different in 4 ceremonies that I have officiated. At first the couple was not so sure about what was going to happen but, once we did it they were so happy we did. When I officiate a wedding the couple stands facing one another. That way everyone can see their faces and I am not the center of attention. The next thing I did was have the wedding party switch sides that way the bride looked at her mother and the groom looked at his mother. The mothers aren't getting just a side profile. This makes for a happy couple and happy mothers. They get to be a part of the ceremony and get to see all that is going on. More tears, yes. It is something none of them will ever forget. Also helps when I have a nervous couple and I know that the moms can help me keep them calm. Try this at your wedding or suggest it, it is very special for all involved.
Just a little note about me. I am posting thoughts and helpful hints. I am hoping this makes your special day even better.
