New guestbook idea... Signature Vase?
Posted 07 February 2009 - 08:38 AM
First off... This was the best place I could think of to post this - but mods, please feel free to move if nessecary!
Quick minor digression...
So I was looking through vows the other day and found this fantastic little piece to add to the ceremony. I haven't been a fan of the sand ceremony - it just doesn't feel like "us." I've had friends do the hand tieing ceremony and the unity candles... none of it really spoke to me. And then I read about this rose/vase ceremony where the groom gives the bride a rose and the bride gives the groom a vase of water. I cried reading the ceremony because my mom died when I was 9 and in her last wishes, she asked that each year on my birthday I be given a rose to remind me of her love... and so I finally found my "cheesy" but meaningful piece to add.
So then I went off looking for a vase and happened upon this one:
Signature Vase, Guest Book Vase, Wedding Guest Book - Keepsakes
It's a signature vase - kinda like a signature plate or photo mat.
And well... I think it would be a great idea for us because with the rose/vase ceremony I can revise some of the verbiage to include how our community bears witness or some such thing. Or maybe I'll change it up that the families present the vase, the bride gives the water, the groom the rose. I'll need to play with it.
I was just really excited... so if there are any of you who are looking for a unique guestbook idea, I thought I'd pass it along!

And now you will always have a place to put the reminders of your mother's love...given to you by the man who loves you...and inscribed by those who love you too.
Love surrounds you...what a blessing.
