It’s easy to understand why people write their own wedding vows, it’s one of the most special ways to make your big day more unique. We always love hearing the romantic personal vows during ceremonies at the Canoe Club Ballroom. Having personalized vows can bring tears of joy to your guest’s eyes! Don't worry if you are not a poet, we have gathered up great ideas to start your wedding vows and have you put pen to paper! 


Start your vows one month before your wedding day, planning for the big day will be almost all done, and you can focus on your vows. You will want to start separately, schedule some alone time to write your wedding vows independently, before sharing them with your significant other. You’ll want to ask yourself questions when writing your vows, how did you two fall in love? What do you admire about your partner? How do you see your future for the two of you? Asking these questions will easily translate into wedding vows. Once you are done with your personal thoughts, look through books and poems that you love to read. Then you can add your favorites to your vows. Lastly, focus on what your marriage means to you? What are you saying yes to? Think to your future and what you want the future to be for the two of you.

Thinking of something fun to do for your favors for your wedding? Why not give your guest a yummy snack to take home with them. Your guests will absolutely love it! After the cake and the awesome late night station, an extra treat or two never hurt anyone! Food and drink favors are really fun, and you can show off your DIY skills! We have gathered up with some great ideas that you can give your guests as they depart your wedding!


Donuts are a really fun option to give your guests, you can personize the packaging with your wedding date on it, or a fun little saying like “ all you need is love and donuts”.  We absolutely love the idea of putting nostalgic treats in a mug with your new monogram on it. Another  fun idea is to choose your favorite beverage and add a customized label with either your wedding date or  better yet, personalize each bottle with your guests name!  If you have a family recipe for an amazing chocolate chip cookie you can give them out to your guests in a personalized paper bag with your new logo on it!

When you start planning your wedding, there is  a good chance that your celebration will have symbolic meanings throughout the day. A classic symbolic element to a ceremony is the exchanging of the wedding rings, which symbolize the eternal commitment to your significant other. Certain symbols find their way into the special day without much effort at all. There are many different themes that you can honor at your wedding, and we have gathered some fun ideas to incorporate into your special day with us at the Canoe Club Ballroom.



Consider having  doors as a  backdrop to your ceremony as well as a backdrop to your sweetheart table at your recpetion. Doors are passageways, which mean they represent transition, just like the two of you becoming a married couple.


Cherry Blossoms

We have seen this many times here at the Canoe Club Ballroom. Cherry Blossoms blooms in the spring, and are seen as a sign of renewal. This would be a perfect theme for a spring time!



The caterpillars metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly is the perfect symbol for rebirth, you can incorporate  them into your special day very easily with favors, décor, even display them on your wedding program.



Perfect for early spring celebrations, these lovely early blooming flowers are a great representation of new beginnings. Use these blooms in your centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnières.
