Sounds messy.

I think it’s totally cute if it fits your personalities! Are you okay with your unity ceremony not involving anything that will physically last? Meaning, you can keep a unity candle or a jar of sand, but the PB&J sandwich won’t exactly keep. πŸ˜‰

Hm. It would definately be memorable! Are PB and J really personal for you guys? If so, I could see it working. I mean be ready for some sideways looks but if it works for you guys then go for it!

I’m super clumsy and see disaster abounding in the presence of peanut butter, jelly and a white dress.

It’s a cute idea, but sounds like it could get sticky and messy.  Last thing you want is jelly falling on you.  We are eloping so we aren’t doing any of those additions.  Short and sweet for us πŸ™‚

This should be moved to ceremony but I think it sounds bad. I like that it plays on you guys but I think there are better options if you want to do a unity ceremony. That  will be hard to get out of your teeth come picture time.  Playing on this Fun kid free theme how about a time capsule instead? traditionally it is a letter to each other and a bottle of wine for your first anni but you could do a little gift or something. it gets nailed shut and you open it at your first anni.

If you think you can contain the mess, I’d say go for it!

At our wedding, we did a Jager Bomb shot. We had 2 glasses already poured with Redbull. DH pulled a flask out of his jacket, poured two shots of Jager. We each dropped the shot into eachother’s glass and tossed them back. It was so fun and memorable!

I’m sorry.  I think it’s kinda cringe-y.  But if all your friends and family know you as whimsical, you might pull it off.

No worries, I’ll move to ceremony!

I would be a little worried about the mess too, but obviously you can assess whether that’s a risk for you. πŸ˜‰

OMG, that sounds soooo cute!  I don’t think it has to be messy if you do it carefully.  My only other concern is that you need something to wash it down with because if you’re like me, your mouth gets dry when you’re nervous…. and PB + a dry mouth = disaster.
