    Hand Blessing

    Jamy, please face William and hold his hands, palms up, so that you may see the gift that they are to you.

    These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow and tears of joy. These are the hands that will comfort you in illness and hold you when fear or grief fills you. These are the hands that will give you support and celebrate with you in your accomplishments.

    William, take a look at the position of your hands with Jamy's and know that this is the last time that you will have the “upper hand.”

    William, please hold Jamy’s hands, palms up, so that you may see the gift that they are to you.

    These are the hands of your best friend, smooth, young and carefree, as she promises to passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times. They are the hands that will comfort you when you are sick or console you when you are grieving. These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, for a lifetime of happiness. These are the hands that will give you support as she encourages you to fulfill your dreams.

    Our prayer for you today is that both of you will use these hands to build a marriage where all your dreams come true.
    Jamy, thank you so much for sharing this. I absolutely love this! I just saved it to a word doc.

        Maybe a dumb question, but if you write your own vows, can you still have the minister say them and you repeat them? I don't want to try to memorize them but if I write them down, who will hold them?

          Not a dumb question at all. Yes, you can have the minister read what you write. That is exactly what I am planning on doing.

            Thank goodness! I can just see myself going totally blank. Will you get to speak with your minister before the ceremony? From what other RIU brides have said I'm pretty sure I won't meet him so I guess I just give the vows to the WC.

              Actually a friend of mine is marrying us, so I will have everything all typed out for her. I am sure you can do the same for the minister, definitely give your vows to the WC.
