hmmm I dunno… It is very beautiful, I will admit that. But I think some people could feel uneasy about it. It’s your call, of course!

I don’t think it would be appropriate for a non-Catholic.

What about just wrapping a cross pendant around your boquet? It wouldn’t be an actual rosary but would give a similar look maybe?

I like babyboo’s suggestion.

Since it is a devotional item and not just a string of beads, IMO it wouldn’t be appropriate for someone who doesn’t have a reverance for the rosary (which is pretty important to some people) to carry it just for looks. I think that if you prayed the rosary, it would probably be appropriate. That said, many people who see you may either not notice it, or may assume you’ve taken up praying it. As a catholic, I don’t know that I’d be insulted as a guest, but I would think it was weird (if I knew you weren’t catholic).

Generally, I think it’s inappropriate to use traditions/items from other cultures and religions solely for aesthetic purposes. Christina Aguilera is actually Catholic, so I don’t find it odd that she carried a rosary.

I say no, a rosary is a religous item and should solely be used to pray the rosary…it is not jewelery and should not be use for anything other than praying the rosary. If you are not catholic and if it has no meaning to you, it would be quite offensive for anyone who is catholic.

Ya I am not so sure about that – I think it is disrespectful!

Well a rosary isn’t one w/ just a cross on it – an actual crucifix is important as it allows the person praying to reflect on Jesus and his sacrifice, as well as the meditation. 

I’d be slightly offended b/c the rosary is very dear to my heart – and knowing that you were trying to make a “fashion statement” is kind of sacrilegous in a way.

I am thinking of carring one a rosery in my bouquet as I walk down the aisle but I’m Catholic, Fiance is not.
