My sister and her hubby did the rose ceremony where they handed a rose to eat mother… I do like this especially with my mom because she is very sick with cancer so of course I want to honor her… But is there something else we can do? If I ca’t figure something else out I will settle with the roses, Im just the type of person who wants something unique and different. We are getting married on the beach also… I thought maybe a lei but they will already be wearing a corsage on their chest.
Please help. 🙂

I think a rose ceremony is a lovely idea. Could you maybe fasten a unique broach to each mother?

There was a bee doing a unity sand ceremony to honor both her parents and the wedding. Her ceremony included having the parents pour a layer of sand, while the officiant talked about how they shaped the bride and groom and made them the people who were entering into marriage. Then the bride and groom each did a layer of their own colored sand to represent their individual strenghts they brought to the marriage and then the last layer was the bride and grooms color poured together to represent their marriage. This would be a nice keepsake too after the wedding.

@nikkialys: We are already doing a unity with our kids… we each have a little one from a previous relationship so we are doing a unique unity with all four of us.
