“…To Have and To Hold…”

There are so many ways to personalize your wedding: clothing (of course!), flowers (of course!), decor, location, music, menu, favors…

Your wedding vows are another opportunity to reflect your relationship. Traditional vows are great – they cover all the bases and are brief, understandable and classic. Some couples choose to add their own spin to the traditional vows with a few tweaks. Others start from scratch and create vows that are completely unique.

We’ve rounded up some of the best blog posts on wedding vows to help you decide what is best for you.

Martha Stewart Weddings has a comprehensive list of traditional vows for almost every religious ceremony.

The Knot provides inspiration from vows used by recently married couples. A Practical Wedding offers 25 vows guaranteed to make everyone cry…or laugh.  OffBeat Bride has some really unique vows they encourage you to steal.

Wedding Paper Divas has a mind-boggling list of 600 different options to choose from, and The Spruce has some great tips for writing your own vows.

Why the Lighting Matters

Lighting might not be very high on your priority list when it comes to planning your wedding reception, but we assure you, it’s worth a few minutes of your time.

LED lighting can match your bridal colors and really make your reception space look dressed up for your big day. Complete Weddings & Music has a full array of colors that we can add to any venue.

Lighting not only supports your theme and colors, it encourages people to relax and have a good time. Most venues that host weddings on a regular basis have overhead lighting that can be set to various levels of brightness, but that’s a question that brides and wedding planners should always ask before booking. You need the room to be a little brighter for dinner and photo opps (like cutting the cake, toasts, etc.), but once the music starts, lower those lights.

Any questions? Your Complete Weddings & Music staff would be happy to help.
