I love the idea of the crowning done in orthodox weddings and am thinking I want to incorporate it somehow into our wedding. My husband and I are both Lutheran and are having a traditional ceremony. Any ideas on how to incorporate it and make it flow?

MrandMrsN: I was raised Orthodox, and it is a beautiful and integral part of the ceremony. Have you discussed this with your Lutheran pastor? The very nature of the Lutheran church might make this impossible if you’re having a “traditional” ceremony.
I don’t mean to sound harsh, but before you try to do this, I think you should check with the pastor.

Our pastor is completely fine with us adding or changing anything in the ceremony as long as it remains centered around God and our love for one another.
