Ways to involve guests in the wedding ceremony

Recommended Posts

We are really non-traditional and are thinking of ways to involve our guests in the ceremony so that it's not boring. 

 

We are thinking of putting fans on everyone's seat, with a quote on the back, and at a point in the ceremony, the officient would ask each person to read what is written on their fan. That way we don't have to pick one or two people for readings and everyone feels involved. I think it would be a bit of fun too!

Does anyone have any other ideas?

a nice idea that i'm going to use is doing one of those sand ceremonies -- and then have all of your guests put a bit of sand in your container of choice before you and your fiance put it in. i haven't come up with the wording we're going to use yet, but you can say something about how all of those guests help to form part of the foundation of your relationship....

That's lovely! We were thinking of doing the sand ceremony too. 

There's a few others that I've found:

 

Ring Warming - the rings are passed to each guests so they can be blessed and warmed, I wuite like this one

Rock blessing - everyone is given a small rock at the beginning of the ceremony and these are collected afterwards, displayed in a nice jar. You could do this with seashells too.

Hand Fasting - we may do this - the officient ties your hands together with fabric (maybe fabric from my grandmother who is unable to attend)

We're doing this as well..we bought small bottles from amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Package-Small-Mini-Glass-Stoppers/dp/B004ZXW4MK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1345133002&sr=8-1&keywords=SMALL+SAND+BOTTLE) and plan on asking the guests to fill it with sand from the beach
