Unique Ceremonies

Recommended Posts

Not at all...a good friend of mine did one at her wedding in a park in Ontario. Do what you want and I think it basically replaces the unity candle which is such a lovely part of a ceremony! I believe people have moved towards sand when the wedding is held outside...that's my two cents :)

Thank you so much for this thread. I just asked Meagan (*Tucks*) what things I could do instead of the sand and unity candles ceremonies. I am glad I came on here and searched. I like the hand ceremony and the rose. I have already written the hand ceremony into our script since FI really really likes it but not sure about the rose ceremony just yet or whether I should only do one or the other and not both. Thanks Christine for sharing all of this info!

I'm so happy pinkie.gif I can't wait to tell him. In our country we don't have such beautiful ceremonies - there are all the same, boring, with the same words

Our guests will be delighted! love.gif

I am doing a rose ceremony, but to honor the mother's. The officiant will hand my FI and I a rose during the ceremony and say a little something, then we are going to give the roses to our moms.

 

We are going to do something like this:

 

Officiant:

"We open this ceremony with a symbolic gift of beauty and gratitude to the women who gave the bride and groom life---their mothers."

 

(I then give the roses to the bride and groom who then present them to their mothers with a hug and kiss. Sometimes, as they embrace I have heard a bride or groom whisper in their mother's ear , "I love you, Mom.")

 

"Mothers, it is in your honor that I offer this quote from Homer's Hymns: It is she who nourished you; she, out of her treasures. Beautiful children; beautiful harvests; are achieved from you, the giving of life itself.”
