I was reading this article online today about how to modernize and have fun at the wedding ceremony. It has some great ideas, and one of my favorites is to have the bridesmaids carry clutchpurses matching the bridal colors instead of the usual attendant bouquets. Some are a little weird (at least to me) but some couples may find bright and new ideas to put zest into their wedding ceremonies. I firmly believe that nothing is hurt by looking, so take a look at the site listed below to see if these ideas might fit YOUR ceremony. Enjoy!
Hi. I'm Bishop Dave Doyle, or "Fr. Dave," as a lot of people call me, the premier New Mexico wedding officiant for interfaith and Catholic weddings. I started Abundant Blessings Wedding Officiant after a buddy asked me to sub in a wedding he couldn't make; this was in the old Gruet Winery "chapel" before they did away with it. In my parish (Christ the King Old Catholic Church) I married couples as their pastor, and even followed up with Baptisms. In time more and more couples asked me to officiate at their weddings because they heard about me from friends or vendors I worked with. Many couples wanted an outdoor Catholic wedding, and here in New Mexico we are greatly blessed with beautiful weather and scenery. Finally I took the advice of many wedding professionals I worked with and started Abundant Blessings Wedding Officiant, and have been blessed with meeting many couples as they prepare for their special day. I am honored and privileged to be a part of their wedding preparation.
