@KristenGotMarried:  Ours was done at the beginning of the ceremony after I had walked down the aisle.  Especially with how many guests you have, this would probably work the best. It allows your officiant to explain the ceremony at the beginning and gives the guests time to focus on the rings for a minute without being rushed.  It also is better to make sure that the rings are back at the front by the ring exchange.  We only had about 16 guests but I can’t tell you how long it took (I don’t think it took too long though with that few people).

We actually had this going on while the ceremony was started.  Everyone responded really well to it and nobody felt like the time they had with the rings made them miss anything during the ceremony.  The main parts that were going on were a couple of readings by the officiant.  With so few people, by the time we started the vows, the rings were back to us.

We are doing this as well. The officiant, once I am standing with the groom, will briefly explain the concept and the rings will be passed between the guests during the ceremony. We have decided that my fiancé Mom should be holding it last so she can pass them to him for the ring exchange. She is recently widowed and I thought this would be a nice gesture.

I hate to be the first to ask, but what is ring warming?

@MrsButthead:  I’ve never heard of it either, but I’d assume from the comments you pass your rings around the guests seated at the wedding at some point in the ceremony before the official exchange, so they can bless them or whatever they want.

How long do you think a ring warming would take with 65-70 guests?
