All the Weddings is all about inclusiveness, positivity, and having the wedding you want to have. If it seems like the right thing for you, build traditions in to your ceremony which hark back to old and new Pagan religions. This blog tells you what to expect if you’re a guest at a Pagan wedding, from celebrating diversity to convenient footwear. Enjoy.

“There is a good chance that among the guests and wedding party there will be people of every background. Expect to meet wonderful folks of many different gender identities, sexual orientations, races, social and economic backgrounds, and abilities. Equality, open mindedness, and inclusiveness are important values to Pagans.

Chances are good that the event will be held outdoors, so dress for the weather and leave your stiletto heels at home.”

My favourite “love” quote at the moment is from Jane Eyre: “I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you — especially when you are near to me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame.”

Although that quote doesn’t appear on this post, it’s well worth checking out this list of badass wedding quotes at A Practical Wedding. The post even includes ideas of what you can do with the quotes.  From welcome signs to words up the aisles, head over for some inspiration.
