This community-centered Catskills wedding stole our hearts

Ashley and Mi's amazing Catskills wedding was a handcrafted labor of love among their friends and community. Together they made hand-stamped welcome bags and poetry journals, Ashley's handmade earrings, paper cranes and ribbons hung from trees, collected bottles as centerpieces, and a group reading during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, it was dinner and a sparkler parade led by fiddle players to a contra band and square dance caller. We can only the imagine the fun after that. Let's see it all…

A poly-friendly and non-possessive ceremony script (with three rings!)

If you are looking to shed some of the possessive wording that usually comes with standard marriage ceremonies, this poly-friendly and non-possessive ceremony script will give you some great inspiration. It's non-gendered, non-monogamy-friendly, totally usable by LGBTQ couples and cishet couples alike, and sweet as hell. Plus, see how three rings came into play (and the Iron Ring symbolism for Canadian engineers!)

We aspire to be as fun and stylish as this chill San Diego wedding

"It was just an amazing night of our favorite people, tasty beers, and just a ridiculous amount of happiness." Hell yes it was! This chill San Diego wedding had a backyard ceremony full of greenery, handmade bouquets and boutonnieres, a killer brewery venue, a stop at In-N-Out, and two adorables being adorable. Don't miss the awesome idea to have a beer + dessert reception!

Keep it cosmic AND gender-neutral with this space-themed ceremony script (+ READINGS!)

As a queer person, it was important to me to have a ceremony that reflected our values while avoiding language that was cis- or hetero-centric. Our spiritual and philosophical practices and beliefs include both Christianity and Buddhism, and we both feel strongly about the value of secular institutions. On top of this, our wedding was space-themed! With all these things in mind, we decided to write the gender-neutral space-themed ceremony from scratch.

Rock Band, drag kings, and burlesque: this rainbow wedding triumphs

Crystal and Kalem wanted the focus of their wedding to be on major FUN, so that called for Rock Band, board games, personalized crossword puzzles, Mad Libs, a rapper, drag kings, and burlesque. Add in a ring warming, a moment of silence/blessing during the ceremony, a handfasting, and an art gallery surprise from Kalem with loads of art, this rainbow wedding gave us reason to LIVE.

In lieu of a first dance, they had a first Rock Band song, and their six parental figures joined for a family performance.
