    I'm also thinking of having a photo booth and a rose ceremony. In a traditional Rose ceremony, roses are handed out to the family members and close friends of the Bride and Groom. During the wedding ceremony, the officiant will request that those with a rose come forward and place them together in a vase. While they are doing so, the officiant will explain that these roses are symbols of the love that those in attendance wish to share with Bride and Groom. Once all the roses have been placed in the vase, the officiant will then take two roses that had been set aside and give one each to the Bride and Groom. Before all their family and friends the newlywed couple will give each other their first gift as husband and wife. A single red rose. As the rose is the ultimate symbol of love, the first gift that is then given, is the gift of love.

      I really like the idea of passing around the ring for blessing. It will not take away too much time for all the guests to come up and pour the sand or place the rose at the front, so it is a nice way to have the guests involved. Thanks for the suggestion. I might have to borrow that idea from you. 


      At the reception, I was just going to buy a polaroid camera and have guests take pictures of themselves and place it into the guestbook before they write their messages and sign. Photobooths are great, but I'm not sure if I can afford it. It seems pricy!

        I've also heard of a stone ceremony, where everyone holds a stone during the ceremony and afterwards, everyone walks to the ocean and casts them in. 


        I was thinking of doing something like this, but I think we now like the idea of tying a sailor's knot instead!
