    Hey All- I'm planning a ceremony on the beach and am looking for ways to involve the mothers since we won't be having the traditional candle ceremony done in more traditional weddings. Anyone have any ideas on ways to involve both mothers in the ceremony? I dont think we're going to do the sand ceremony. Thoughts? THANK YOU!

        How about a rose (or other flower) ceremony? Rose Ceremony, Wedding Rose Ceremony by Los Angeles Officiants

          They could read a poem that relates to your relationship.. Matt's sister did this and had everyone in tears!

            This is a great question that I could use input on as well! FI's mother is deceased, so we are doing a memorial flower that he will place in her empty chair. We are also doing a sand ceremony and decided that we will be the only two pouring sand (since his parents won't be in attendance). I'm also looking for a way to involve my mother in the ceremony.

            Will it seem weird if I present my mom with flowers when there's no one on FI's side to present flowers too? Maybe we can present my mom with flowers and then FI and place the memorial flower in the empty chair I don't know what to do here.

            At our legal ceremony in Hawaii we are going with the traditional Hawaiian wedding ceremony, and we will be doing a Lei cermony where we present our mom's with lei's. There's a whole thing we say and what not. I wonder if there is something similar in the Mexican culture that you could use?

              I would suggest having them do a reading or something. We will each be placing roses in reserved empty seats in memory of our deceased parents (my mom and his dad).

              Other than that I really don't have any other suggestions. Sorry!

                I would have them do a reading. I am not doing anything. My FI's parents are saying a blessing and welcoming speech at the reception, but other than that we are not involving my parents..

                  the flower ceremony is a lovely way to honor your moms

                  I've also seen a lot of ceremonies where both parents walked the bride down the aisle (same with the groom!)
