      Would it be weird to have a sand ceremony if I'm not getting married at the beach?

        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!

              Thanks for all those ideas!
              We definitely plan on doing the sand ceremony if we can find a frame that we like.

                  I'm so happy 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!

                    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:

                    "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.”

                    I love being a Mrs.!

                      I think we will do the hands ceremony + the sand ceremony...

                      In what order should we do things?

                      Hands ceremony
                      I do's + Vows
                      Exchange of ring + kiss
                      Sand ceremony
