OMG. I love this idea. I am thinking of stealing this idea for our weddinG even though we were planning on having a unity candle. Our theme is Secret garden and we have a lot of skeleton keys incorportated into our wedding minus the ceremony. So this is something that would work well for us also. I am going to talk about this with my mister! Love love love!

@sapphiregriffin: He liked the idea, so now I am running with it. I’ve been searching all over eBay for the perfect pair of padlocks and I may have found them!  We are also incorporating balloons that were not going to be used whatsoever into a send off type thing at the end of the ceremony as well. Sending a big thanks toward you for writing this post. 🙂

Hi @sapphiregriffin

I am so glad I found your post!! I too was thinking about using a love lock as part of our ceremony. We got engaged in Paris and left a love lock on the Pont Des Arts. I thought it was so romantic and really wanted to incorperate it into the day somhow. I am very much at the beginning stage of looking and have seen some ideas such as a picture frame, a plaque, a bracelet with 2 locks on etc. The main thing I wanted to ask is how are you going to introduce it to your guests? Are you having a reading about Love locks and what they mean? I have tried to google this but can’t come up with anything. Any thoughts??

P.s I also love your Ballon Idea. We threw our key in the river Seine but we won’t have that pleasure at our wedding venue. 🙂

I love it! How fun!

When I was in Paris a couple of years ago, I took a ton of pix of the love locks on the bridges that cross the Seine river near Notre Dame. Then my camera card got screwed up! ugh! But it was beautiful…all of those locks on the bridge!

Thanks Sapphire you’ve really been a huge help. The idea of writing something on the back of the program is great, and what you have written is really beautiful. Smile I am infact gatecrashing your site because I am actually from the uk so must admit I am not au fait with the unity candle you have mentioned.Thanks for posting the clip, looks great and has really inspired me.

GFerg- That’s such a shame that you lost your photos, however your memories will live with you forever Laughing
