There were a few, i think.  The one I’ve seen recently is Mrs Hippo, I believe.

This may be a dumb question… but what is a ring warming?

We are doing a ring warming. A couple of Bees have done this, but I can’t remember.

A ring warming is when you pass your wedding rings around to your guests and have them say a prayer for or put positive thoughts and well wishes into your marriage. If you have a small guest list, you can do this right before you exchange the rings. If you have a large guest list, you can do this at the beginning of the ceremony and have them back in time for the exchange. I’ve also seen where the rings are held by the ushers and as guests come in to the ceremony area, they are asked to bless the rings right there and then.

We did one.  It was a big hit.  To give you an idea of the logistics, we had a fairly short ceremony (10 – 15 minutes) with 60 guests.  We tied our rings to a ring pillow to keep things from beig dropped (this was an outdoor ceremony).  After the welcome message we introduced the idea of the ring warming to everyone asking them to put their well wishes/prayers etc for us in the rings as they were passed around.  Then we passed the rings around on the pillow.  Since neither husband nor I are religious at all, I think it gave those who are religious a way to say prayers/communicate with their God without it being a formal part of our ceremony.  We got the rings back after everyone had a chance to hold them.  I still think about the symbolism of all this when I see my wedding band to this day.
