2. Use table numbers that have a particular significance to your relationship.

“For our wedding table numbers, we decided to pick numbers that are significant to us. so we did the day we met (5), the day we tied the knot (7), each of our lucky numbers (4 & 14), our combined height in inches (132), how many miles from our house to the beach (15), and a few others.”

18. As part of your ceremony, seal love notes and a bottle of wine into a box to enjoy on your 10th anniversary.

21. Hang red roses or carnations from the ceiling.

22. Have a ring warming ceremony to take the ring exchange one step further.

Early in the ceremony, the rings are tied together and passed around to the guests who imbue the rings with a silent prayer or blessing for the couple when the rings reach them. By the time the bride and groom exchange the rings, they are filled with the warmth and love of their family and friends.

24. Have a dance just for the married couples.

“Invite all of the married couples onto the dance floor. The DJ announces years of marriage in five-year increments and the couples sit down when they hear theirs called. At the end of the song, the couple that has been married the longest remains and provides words of wisdom for a long, happy marriage.”
