We did our handfasting with a flexible wreath of flowers that was twisted into an infinity symbol. We each put a hand through one side. Our officiant used the Victorian flower language and made the wreath herself using different flowers and herbs that all meant something.

Your wedding ceremony sounds very very similar to ours! A friend got ordained, and I’ve been working on incorporating and building a non-denom ceremony for a while now. I like the idea of the ring warming, but I think sand/unity candle/etc. are all kind of overdone IMHO. I was thinking about having a group consent at some point in the ceremony and maybe using sparklers or candles passing a flame on from one person to the next to create a “circle of light, support, and love” (our wedding is smallish–76 people or so). I think doing something that would incorporate the attendees is very cool. Maybe modifiying one of the traditional things to be more meaningful, like family brings you dirt from all their homes to be combined and you two plant something in it? I’m interested to see what you come up with!

Rose ceremony — another unity thing, can also honor your mothers with it, there are a few versions if you poke around.
Also heard of salt ceremony (unity ceremony, pretty much like sand I think) and of planting a tree.

I really like ring warming though. If my wedding were smaller, I would want to do it for sure!

And I vetoed wine box from my wedding for your exact reasons.

We will be doing the wine box ceremony thing. But like you I dont trust myself with a hammer! So I ordered a box with 2 latches on it to seal it instead.

These are all awesome and unique ideas. I wish we could to the Thai Lanterns! it always looks so beautiful
