I’ve never heard of the bride and groom doing that before, but I think it is cool!

I wouldn’t worry about the wine spilling. I’ve never seen any of the wine get spilled before (especially because it is not allowed to be spilled).  If you are still worried, one thing I have seen is that at some churches, the rim of the chalice is wiped after each sip. Maybe you could ask your priest about that to give you some extra protection.

I love this idea….going to have to store that one away for our big day.  Thanks for sharing!  And I wouldn’t worry about spilling – I’ve never seen wine get spilled during communion.

My fiance and I are doing the same thing. It hadn’t occured to me to worry about spilling! I’ve never spilled the cup before when serving as a Eucharistic Minister, so hopefully I won’t start then. Maybe I’ll offer up an extra prayer and hope for the best!

A friend of mine did this at her wedding. Well, it was a Lutheran wedding and she and her husband are in seminary, so they distributed the bread. 

Here’s my words of encouragement…have you ever, ever, ever seen an EM spill the wine? You’ll be fine! People will be extra careful anyway. You could always ask if you can help distribute the bread.

Thanks for this idea! I’m going to ask our priest about it when we start deciding the details for the ceremony 🙂

That is such a nice idea!  And I agree with PPs, I’ve never seen anyone spill, so you should be fine!
