Ring warming

What special elements are you adding into your ceremony to incorporate your loved ones into it? We had a meeting with our officiant and she brought up doing a ring warming as a part of our ceremony! She will have one of the groomsmen hand a box to a guest in the back who will then pass it around to the other guests in the crowd until it meets the front. These people then have the chance to bless your rings with their warm wishes for a lifetime of happiness together. We don't have family members doing any readings so we will be incorporating this into our ceremony Smiley smile Click on the hyperlink below to watch a brief video!

    You could put the rings on a stand somewhere for everybody to touch as they're coming into your ceremony space!

    I participated in this once. When the rings got to me, they were so full of energy honestly, I could feel it. I wasn't prepared for it, and I burst out crying! (but in a good way) Its a really wonderful way to incorporate family and friends into the ceremony!

    This is such a great idea! I would love to incorporate something like this, but I am not sure how long it would take to pass the rings around to over 100 people. Maybe keeping it to parents would work better in my case.

    We are doing a love letter ceremony. We are going to write each other letters, then place them in a box with a bottle of wine. On our first anniversary, we get to open the bottle and read the letters then replace them with newly written ones.

    Our officiant suggested this too! Super cute idea. We don't have anything specific to incorporate our guests, but we are doing a handfasting to pay tribute to my Irish heritage.

    I think we’re going to do a special thank you to our parents and had out a rose to them at the start of the ceremony. Out officiant will say something like,

    Today Jennifer and Brady proclaim their love and commitment to the world. Jennifer and Brady want to make special recognition of their parents for making today possible. Thank you moms and dads for giving us a wonderful beginning.”

    Yeah, I get that! It’s not for everyone! We’re pretty excited about it. It has a faith component too because Jesus washed his disciples’ feet, so that makes it really special for us.

    That’s an interesting idea! I’ve never heard of that. We don’t have anything special to incorporate our guests, but we will be doing a feet washing ceremony. It’s a symbol of humility and service for us to begin our marriage by washing each other’s feet.
