Hey out there!
At my wedding, I really want to have a Ring Warming Ceremony. I am going to be having around 90-100 guests.
My first question, is this too many guests to do a ring warming ceremony? If so, is there anything I could do to make it work (I thought either I could have the rings displayed at the entrance so that people could offer their blessings there, or perhaps split up the two rings so that it feels like it goes a little faster?)
My second question is when should the ring warming ceremony start? 10 minutes before the wedding? Earlier? Should it start on the time when the wedding starts?

Did anyone here have a ring warming ceremony at their wedding? How did it go? How did people like it? How big was your wedding?

I haven’t done it, and it seems like a nice idea for some, but I really don’t want a bunch of people; family or not, touching my rings.

We are having one with 65 guests. Still haven’t worked out all the details with the officiant, but will let you know how it goes!

We had a ring warming ceremony during our interfaith ceremony last month. It was a really unique and very special event. Although we had over 100 guests at our ceremony, we limited whom we had the rings go to. They were tied together and went from our best man, through the groomsmen, to the grooms immediate family, across the aisle to my immediate family, then through the bridesmaids, to my MOH, and back to me. I’m not sure how you’d arrange for the rings to go to all of your guests in a limited time. Plus, you’d probably want to have your officiant/celebrant/minister make an announcement during the ceremony about the ring warming ritual and the importance of it. Hope this helps some!
