One friend of ours just did it with the bridal party and then accross the front row which consisted of their immediate families, because she was concerned about them not making it back in time.

I really want to have one, but I’m not sure if I will be able to either… I’m having 90-100 guests and I think that is too many to pull it off… If I estimate on average each person will hold our rings for 30 seconds, it would take around 50 minutes for them to go around the room. So unless we start passing around the rings at the very beginning of the ceremony, before the processional even, we could never fit it into the ceremony.

I was thinking maybe we’d separate the rings and one side would have my ring and the other side would have my FI’s. That way we could cut the time it takes in half.

Another option would be to have the rings displayed at the entrance to where the ceremony is being held and let people hold them and bless them if they want to before they sit down.

I had never even heard of ring warming ceremonies until I came on weddingbee.. I wouldnt really want to pass my ring around for everyone to touch it before I wore it. Especially since I dont know where their hands have been lol Plus  i’d be worried someone might drop it…  I do like the idea of passing it round to just the family and bridal party

Fiance and I are looking for an alternative to a traditional ceremony that isn’t hokey (and I find virtually everything wedding-related hokey) so I think this is a great idea. I had the same concerns about the time it would take – we are having about 150 people. I like the idea of just the immediate families/bridal party doing it.

Or maybe if you wanted to pass it around to everyone, make that part of the ceremony too – like, when it gets to someone, if they want to stand up and say a word or two of encouragement then they can, then they pass it on (but presumably not everyone would want to speak). Then again if you have family/friends who tend to pre-game weddings and/or are really annoying, you might not want to give them an outlet for babbling. Ha!

Hi NJmeetsBX,

I’m including “blessing of the rings” in my ceremony.  I’ve pre-selected family members and friends (about 6 people) to bless our rings with a short prayer or kind words.  I’m having 200 guest and pre-selecting will make the process more efficient…good luck!

I have seen it done… it does take a while if you have everyone in attendance do it.. The most efficiant way I have seen it done is just having your wedding party parents and grandparents participate in the ring warming.. Hope this helps.
