    I am very curious about the wine ceremony. I have not heard of it until today. I am curious to know if anybody is doing it.

      I had the same question. I never knew such a ceremony existed. I saw a bride that did it and it made me curious. Here is what I found.

      Sample Wedding Ceremony Information

      The wine ceremony is #5. I think there are different variations though.

        We had a wine ceremony. We chose a 2 handled silver cup which is called a loving cup to share the wine from. The loving cup has various historial meanings but it mostly for the B&G to share their first drink together and symbolizes the joining of 2 families. Our officiant used a modified version of the text below. We chose to do this ceremony because we are both wine lovers, and wine was a theme of our wedding and we had corks for placecard holders etc. It is nice that we now have an engraved silver wine cup that we will pass on to our children.

        "The years of life are as a cup of wine poured out for you to drink. This Loving Cup contains within it a wine with certain properties that are sweet and symbolic of happiness, joy, hope, peace, love and delight.

        This same wine also holds some bitter properties that are symbolic of disappointment, sorrow, grief, despair, and life's trials and tribulations.

        Together the sweet and the bitter represent "Love's Journey" and all of the experiences that are a natural part of it. For all who share the wine from this Loving Cup, so may you share all things from this day on with love and understanding.

        Those who drink deeply from the Loving Cup with an open heart and willing spirit, invite the full range of challenges and experiences into their being for themselves and the Bride and Groom.

        Minister pours wine into the Loving Cup and holds it up.

        This cup of wine is symbolic of the cup of life. As you all share the wine from the Loving Cup, you undertake to share all that the future may bring. It represents the blessing given and passed on to each participant in this ceremony.

        All the sweetness life's cup may hold for each of you will be the sweeter because you drink it together. Whatever drops of bitterness it may contain will be less bitter because you share them.

        Drink now, and may the cup of your lives be sweet and full to running over."
