    I just went to a wedding where the couple did a ring warming. At the very beginning of the ceremony the minister took the couple's rings and handed them to the guests and asked everyone to say a little silent blessing for the couple and then pass the rings on. The guests kept passing it on during all of the reading etc and they finished just as it was time to say the vows. Of course it would only work with a smaller guest attendance. The one I went to, she had about 90 guests and it worked.

      I love the idea of the hand ceremony.

        i think that the rose idea is awesome... there def are times when i cant speak cuase im so fustrated with my FI, so i think that the rose ceremony will be truly symbolic for us... as for the sand ceremony, we will be doing ours during the reception, we want every guest to put sand into the vase and say a little something about the happy couple [that's me, lol] we are having about 30 people... all very close friends

            I really like the IndieBride site for unique wedding ceremony ideas. Try this thread:

            Kvetch: Vows => Sample Ceremony Repository

            It has sample ceremonies. Some are really unique!

              We're having a hand ceremony because I think the sand ceremony is just way too overdone...sorry, but just my .02. I wanted a ring warming but was paranoid about some guest dropping the rings in the sand on the beach...ugh. I'd freak if that happened.

              Another way we are personalizing our wedding is having our welcome dinner at a French restaurant in Playa del Carmen and handing out Eiffel Tower keychains as a favor. FI and I met in Paris on a blind date so dinner at a French restaurant fits! :) We're also putting travel candles in our OOT bags...
