Indeed, secular ceremonies are attracting more and more couples to France because they offer great flexibility. Find out how to create a ceremony in your image.

You don’t want something usual or traditional? The decoration of your secular ceremony can be different, especially in terms of the type of your arch. Match the arch to the theme of your wedding. You can design it yourself using flowers, beads, ribbons and more! So here are some ideas:

The moon crescent arch

Why not treat yourself to a magnificent crescent moon arch? It is an original and quite unusual idea. Moreover, you can decorate your altar with greenery, lush flowers or even lights. This shape will remind you of the famous expression « I love you to the moon and back ».


Play with the different shapes

A geometric decoration for your secular ceremony? It’s so chic! For a modern approach to the wedding arch, opt for the angular path. Giant octagonal structures, wooden triangles or tipis … Dare also to use irregular shapes, which will give a very contemporary look to your secular ceremony.


Originals secular ceremonies

Although many of the wedding arches you see on Pinterest are positively filled with flowers, some use little or no flowers at all! Think about colorful ribbons, streamers, or even balloons or lights. Finally, if you want to be green, use greenery. Also, if you really want to make your ark bloom, don’t forget dried flowers which are absolutely beautiful.


Simplicity and sobriety

Focus on the environment around you! So you can simply hang a white sheet on the trees for a very sophisticated look. Furthermore, you can even completely dispense with the arch for your secular ceremony and install patinated wooden doors for a very chic style.

The vows

Vows symbolize hope, love, promise and commitment. Whether they are tender or humorous, romantic or emotional, the exchange of vows is an emotional moment. Take the time to write your speech! Put all your scattered thoughts on paper and things will gradually fall into place. Finally, take inspiration from your relationship and the reasons why you said « Yes »..

The rings

The long-awaited and unavoidable moment of your secular ceremony! The concrete symbol of the commitment made by the couple. You are free to personalize this moment, according to your values, customs and traditions.

Who leads your secular ceremony?

It can be your witnesses, your parents or siblings or your close friends. Sometimes, at first glance, being a speaker can be a little scary. Writing a nice speech and reading it in front of all the guests can sometimes be a little stressful. In that case, think about explaining to them why you are asking them to do it, how important they are in your life. Moreover, as far as the speakers are concerned, they can speak alone, as a duo or in a group.

What are they talking about ?

When your loved ones lead your secular ceremony, they recount the history of your couple. In addition, they recount anecdotes and memories that you may have experienced together. However, be careful not to go into too much detail, at the risk of making the bride and groom feel uncomfortable. It should not be too long either so as not to annoy the guests. Often secular ceremonies last between an hour and an hour and a half, and that is enough. Finally, the structure of a ceremony is as follows: introduction, a few anecdotes, a few touching and sincere words, and finally a toast at the end.

The professionnal officiant of secular ceremony

Also, you can choose a professional lay officiant to animate this beautiful moment. Thus, the officiant will have to meet with you beforehand and on several occasions to get to know you. Thus, he will be able to write a ceremony in your image, retracing your history and its highlights. Then will come the big day, when your officiant will make your lay ceremony an unforgettable memory. For this, you can call Solange from Ma petite cérémonie, this love storyteller will know how to make this moment magical.

The pros and cons

Concerning the animation of the secular ceremony by your relatives, it gives a more intimate character to this moment. However, depending on the speaker you have chosen, this can be more or less wobbly. On the other hand, by taking a professional officiant, you are sure that your secular ceremony will be conducted smoothly! They have the experience and manage the ceremonies with a master’s hand. On the other hand, the personal character will be a little less of a stake and necessarily represents an additional cost for your wedding.

Do as you want !

Once again, this choice is to be made according to your desires and expectations. Do as you wish! Above all, think about the fact that your secular ceremony must be in your image. It doesn’t matter who hosts it, as long as it looks like you!

Finally, take the time to choose the personal touches that will make your secular ceremony a true representation of your couple. This can be done by a unique decor, a ritual in particular, a personalized message etc. …. Feel free to borrow traditions and give them your own twist!
