So I’ve been thinking I would love to have a rose ceremony to celebrate our moms. My mom has mentioned its not fair my dads walking me down the aisle and my mom just gets to sit there so I thought doing a surprise rose ceremony would be a nice way to thank her (and my FMIL) and include them in the ceremony. Our wedding is still a ways a way but I wanted to try to get some ideas on the script for this ceremony and I’m hoping there are some bees that have done this/will do this that won’t mind sharing 🙂

@hazyleyedbeauty: We are doing a rose ceremony and this is the script for it:
“Marriage is a coming together of two lives, and a celebration of the love of two people. But it is more. The love that you feel for one another is the flowering of a seed your parents planted in your hearts many years ago. When you were first born, you were a bundle of diapers and tears, and your parents lost sleep caring for you. Their love for you has brought them great happiness and great challenges, and their love did not diminish as they met these challenges. That is a great lesson you can bring into your marriage.
As you embrace one another in your love, so too do you embrace the families that have been brought together on this happy occasion. They have been with you up until this point, and will continue love and support you as your love and family grow.
As a sign of their love for their families, Holly and Andrew would like to offer these roses to their parents as symbols of their eternal love. These roses are a promise that no matter how far away you are that you are not forgotten and that you are always in their hearts. They also represent the recognition of the values and lessons taught by their parents that will carry them into their marriage.”

@hazyleyedbeauty: yes I know! I definitely teared up when I first read it! It is so sweet! I think I got it from this website:http://www.officianteric.com/rose-ceremony/
I believe I pieced together a couple different readings on there. Good luck!
