- Wedding: August 2012
I was going to do a rose ceremony instead of a unity candle (link http://weddings.usabride.com/wedding-planning-advice/the-rose-ceremony/)
I was going to put it right after vows & rings, and right before the pronoucment (“I now pronounce you husband and wife”) (Kiss, yay, exit.)
Problem: a main feature of this ceremony is, “as your first gift as husband and wife”. This ceremony includes the phrase “Husband and wife” like 38 times.
And I just realized, that at weddings I go to, I wait for and look forward to, for the whole thing, the words, “husband and wife.” Specifically, the “I now pronounce you husband and wife.”It’s my favorite part! Success! Hooray! All that waiting for those best best words.
I don’t want to take away from that waiting and from that final line by saying “husband and wife” so many times right before it!
So tell me.
1. Am I just beig dumb and need to suck it up and put it in as originally planned?
2. Have you seen a rose ceremony done? Do I like it as much as I think I do?
3. Do you know of any versions that don’t include “husband and wife”?
4. Am I better off just going with a different “unity” thing, such as…?
5. Do you have any other suggestions?
Thanks for reading!!
