Could you replace the words?  So “as your first gift together” or “first gift as a married couple” It’s sweet but I know what you mean about the “husband and wife” thing.

  • Wedding: June 1997

@pricklypig:  This would work in my opinion. 

This modern ritual incorporates on of the most beloved symbols of romantic love – the rose. A white one is used in honor of the wedding day.

Love O  (handling Love X rose): __________, take this rose as a symbol of my love. It began as a tiny bud and blossomed, just as my love for you has grown and blossomed.

Love X  (placing rose into a bud vase filled with water):  I take this rose, a symbol of your love, and I place it into water, a symbol of life. For, just as this rose cannot survive without water, I cannot survive without you.

Love O:  In remembrance of this day, I will give you a white rose each year on our anniversary, as a reaffirmation of my love and the vows spoken here today.

Love X:  And I will refill this vase with water each year, ready to receive your gift, in reaffirmation of my love and the vows spoken here today.

[ At this time the couple may join hands around the vase to exchange their vows; or, this ritual can be done separately, after the vows have been spoken and rings have been exchanged. ]

I hope this helps you. It is the only rose ceremony from my packet that doesn’t have them giving each a “gift” as “husband” and/or “wife”.
