When I imagined my dream wedding two years ago, I didn’t know anything about humanist weddings yet.
I only knew I wanted a wedding that could represent me and my husband.
I also knew I wanted to have a wedding in a lovely venue that was not a hotel ballroom, a small gathering filled with only people I love and genuinely love me.
My wedding must have no strangers
No speech from a VIP guest I never met
No video presentation (because you don’t need it when everyone in your wedding KNOWS you!)
And no religious ceremony
Months before my wedding, I came to learn about these two beautiful words: “Humanist Weddings”
You can imagine how happy I was to find the term that represented EXACTLY what my dream wedding looked like.
Humanist weddings are small or micro weddings with non-religious ceremony. You can organize it in the venue of your choices. There are no limits to the traditional sequence or usual wedding timeline.
This type of wedding celebrates the meaningful union of love between two people.
The concept of humanism believes in love, relationship, and humanity of the person.
Humanist weddings cherish the same of the wedding couples and their shared values with the blessings for the marriages filled with love, trust, supports, and equality.
Humanist weddings can come in many different styles from rustic, modern, vintage, minimal , or bohemian, if that’s what you have been dreaming of.
With the freedom from strict wedding timeline and ceremonies, you can make your wedding as personal and as creative as you like.
The person who conducts a ceremony in humanist weddings is a humanist celebrant. Alternatively, you may ask your best friend or your close family members to read out the humanist readings that announce your love.
It doesn’t matter how long the whole wedding take,
what are the couples wearing,
or how you decorate the venues.
That is entirely up to you and your partner.
You two are the most important people. And by that, you get to choose what your wedding looks like and feels like.
Humanist weddings are also LGBTQ+ inclusive!
You can choose to abandon gender-biased wedding traditions, then modify, create, and improvise your own. The ones that treat you and your partner as two equals.
I founded Wonders & Weddings to focus only humanist weddings because I believe in the values behind it, especially, gender equality – what I believe should be fundamental right for every person.
Having a humanist wedding was one of the best experiences I have had.
The bonus point, besides honoring love and equality between my husband and I, was having the wedding that was so personal, so unique!
Many of our guests said it was one of the best weddings they attended.
And that it was so us – showing our personalities and styles!
If you dream of a wedding as I describe, I believe humanist wedding is your dream solution.
And I’ll be very happy to create one that is loving and meaningful to you.
