Want to know how to plan your traditional Japanese ceremony? I am Rochelle Saenz, here to give you a tip on how. When it comes time to planning your Japanese ceremony, remember that Shinto is the word "to go". You want to be able to incorporate the different types of customs, so to be sure to check on who is going to officiating over your ceremony. The ceremony itself is simple, but the rituals that go into it are not. When it comes to attire, the bride and groom can wear just about anything, as they are going to be changing twice. You start in traditional Kimonos and then go to the Western style attire, and in that case, it can be anything goes. When it comes to the ceremony itself, vows are not exchanged; however, the sipping of Saki is. This is really a sign of the exchange of their relationship during that time; within there as well are other customs that come into play. At this time, sipping Saki and being together can last for some time, so do plan on putting this into your wedding invitations. Those who have not been to a Shinto wedding may not know that they are going to be there for a while. When it comes time for your Western style attire, which is basically, the bride wearing a dress and groom in a tuxedo, traditional is fine. You can still have that type of a wedding reception following. The Shinto wedding customs with a Japanese wedding really are for the ceremony base, and do not really carry through to the reception. When you want to plan, remember to check with your local officiate to find out which rituals will be in place when you do your Shinto wedding. I am Rochelle Saenz, for RochelleMarie's EVENTS by DESIGN.
