I love the ring. I hate the cake idea, it just does not seem right. Writing in the Bible, not my favourite either but could work if you had each guest pick a verse and get them to write it out on pages of your enagement photobook, for example.

I also beleive in quiet obedience, your ideas are too showy for my taste.

I love the ring idea! It seems perfect for you both as the way you explained your relationship! Congrats!

I don’t really know anything about religion, but.. can’t you NOT write in the bible???  Also, the only idea I don’t really love is having a cake that looks like a bible.  I love the ring idea with the 3 strands – it could also signify the father, the son and the holy spirit, as well as the couple tied together with god – but I think cutting a cake that looks like a bible is going too far and you should probably take a step back and realize this is also about your marriage to each other.  I think if you did a cross-shaped cake, that would be cuter.  I don’t know what it is about cutting a bible cake that I think is a bit odd.. sorry! I don’t mean to offend anyone!

First of all congratulations on your engagement and pending nuptials!

I think your ring is beautiful and the meaning makes it moreso.

I like all your ideas except the bible shaped cake, I would switch that out for a “traditional” wedding cake and I use the term traditional loosely.

Good luck with whatever you decide, at the end of the day its a celebration for the two of you and if he loves your ideas too then go for it!

@excitement:  i had NO idea you could write or highlight in a bible, sorry for my ignorance!  but then, how would you know which guests highlighted which portions if you can’t write, but only highlight?  the point of a guestbook i thought was to get a little note from all your guests or a list of all the guests that showed up as a keepsake..

what if you had people write their favorite portion and sign their name next to it.. like, how some people do things like “Ezekial 1:18” or something (sorry, i really dont know this stuff), perhaps they can each have a card at their place setting, and a bible per table, and ask them to look up which verse is their fave, and mark it on their card and sign it with their names – then you can put all those cards into a box and keep that as your guestbook??

you’re welcome! hope you didn’t get offended or anything.. despite my not being religious, i love that you’re trying to incorporate it into your wedding since it means so much to the both of you – come back with more ideas!

Is everyone invited to your wedding religious?  I would feel awkward if I were asked to highlight something in a book that I wasn’t familiar with.  I agree with @futuremrsk18: that it would be more personal to have them write down a note and ask that they list their favorite passage.  

I think you should have a traditional wedding cake.  A cake shaped like a Bible or like the cross is a neat idea, but then…you cut it up and eat it.  Religion is about symbolism…what is the symbolism of cutting something up and eating it?  Maybe just put a passage from scripture that you love on the cake…

@excitement:  You have plenty of time, and this is how wedding planning works…you have an idea, you share it, you tweak it, you have another idea, etc.  Keep looking!  The ring idea is awesome, by the way.

I agree with PP about the Bible-shaped cake.  I think the rings are lovely.

Instead of having guests highlight a Bible verse (which would cause long lines as people flip through and the possibility of non-Christian guests to feel uncomfortable), what about having a space on your RSVP cards for guests to write their favorite Bible verse and/or words of encouragement?  You could then display those cards at the wedding for everyone to see- same effect, different method.

Ive seen some beautiful 3 tier wedding cakes with scripture written around it in cursive on one of the tiers. Perhaps you can incorporate a meaningful bible verse that way.

Keep a planning journal it will help you to keep track of your ideas and you have many very beautiful ideas! Good luck with everything.
