We did a whiskey and wine ceremony, our dogs are named Whiskey and Wino. for the wine I had white, he had red. We poured both in a glass and each had a sip. The whiskey we have a bottle of Middleton in a box, we wrote vows to each other to read on our anniversary and have a whiskey on the rocks every year. Similar concept to yours

We are doing a ring warming ceremony. We are going to have our rings out before the ceremony for people to go up and say a prayer, blessing, wish etc. and hold them or a box they are in (haven’t figured it out quite yet).

We are doing a hand fasting ceremony and we may also do an oathing stone as well.

We are tying the knot! Literally! We fish every chance we get so it was only natural but even if you don’t, I love this idea. Basically you tie a fishermens knot together, you can do 2 different color cords or ropes to make it more interesting. It symbolizes 2 lives intertwining and the more pressure that is put on it, the stronger it becomes. Fishermans knot is also the strongest knot of all! ❤️

We are braiding a three strand cord. If you google a cord of three strands it will tell you all about the meaning.

That’s Such a cute idea and even if you don’t do it during ceremony maybe have it at a table for guest to write you guys encouraging words to overcome a fight etc? My Fiance and I will be doing a tree planting ceremony and we will plant it in our new home. We will be gathering soil from my parents and grandparents house and his grandparents and parents house and use that soil because their bond with their significant other ranges from 22-57 years of marriage. And then we’ll water it. My uncle who is marrying us will read something like this during the ceremony: 

“Bride and Groom will now take part in a Tree Planting / plant seeding Ceremony, to symbolize the roots of their relationship, and the continued growth of their love, as they become each other’s family today.

Love is the essence of human experience and emotion. It is the root of all and everything we, as humans, do. Love richens our experience, and fills our lives with meaning. It gives us a firm base from which to grow, to learn, and change. Let your relationship and your love for each other be like this tree you plant today. Let it grow tall and strong. Let it stand tall during the harsh winds and rains and storms, and come through unscathed. Like a tree, your marriage must be resilient. It must weather the challenges of daily life and the passage of time. And just like the tree you are planting, marriage requires constant nurturing and nourishment. Bride and Groom, would you please water the sapling? Remember to nourish each other, with words of encouragement, trust, and love. This is needed on a daily basis so you each can grow and reach your fullest potential – just like this tree. The Bride and Groom will plant this tree in their backyard to always be a symbol of their love for each other

We didn’t do any special ceremony — I thought the marriage ceremony was enough of a symbol for our unity.  If you choose to do something else, just try to keep it short and sweet!

We’re doing a wine ceremony, except are leaving out the part about us supposedly opening it when we have our first fight and are using whiskey (FI is not a wine drinker at all). Instead, we will open the box on a pre-determined anniversary (at this stage we’re thinking 5 years but it may change) and use it to celebrate.

I do like your idea, however, of replacing the wine/whiskey/whatever and waiting another 5 years to open it. And

theatrejulia:‘s idea to have a whiskey on the rocks and re-read the letters every year. These are definitely ideas to consider.
