So my Fiance and I are trying to figure out how to symbolize our unity as a couple. Our venue does not allow candles or open flames, so the unity candle is out. I’m also not a huge fan of the little sand mixes or hand tying I’ve seen in some weddings, but can’t think of anything else to do and my Google searches keep coming up with the same ol’ ideas.
Any suggestions on a romantic yet creative way to symbolize the coming together of 2 people as a family?

We did the wine box/love letter ceremony. You write love letters to each other, seal them up and put them in a box along with a bottle of wine. You seal the box during the ceremony and then open it up on some pre-determined anniversary and read the letters you wrote to each other before your wedding.

These are pretty offbeat, but does get the creativity juices flowing.

My best friend did a bourbon ceremony! ice, water, and bourbon (their fav drink). let me know if you want more info, I can ask her for the specifics of what they said for each 🙂 It was the most memorable unity ceremony I’ve seen (attended 7 weddings last year alone!)

@H2MrsDj: Hi! I would love some more details about this if you don’t mind. Our wedding is NYE and I think it would be great for our ceremony!

We’re doing a couple’s rose ceremony. We can’t do candles (no open flame) and didn’t want to do sand.

We are doing a tree planting ceremony. We’ll be mixing together our soil and planting a sapling that we will then transfer to our home. It’s a good segway into talking about the “roots and foundation” of a good marriage.
