there was another thread on this here  http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/love-love-love-this  and several Bees have used it – its so beautiful!


we are using this at ours, i think it goes right before the vows.  We’re also using this one, the Engagement Ring Ceremony.  The engagement ring is done after the wedding bands.

The officiant says "The engagement ring is a symbol of promise and intention. Now
the intention is realized and the promise fulfilled. Please place your
engagement ring on "bride’s name" finger over her wedding band to
symbolize that the love that brought you together will always protect
and sustain your marriage."

I couldn’t finish reading it because my eyes started to tear.  We are meeting with the deacon at our church this Sunday.  If my Fiance likes it too, I will be asking if we could incorporate something like this.  Thanks for sharing.

But to answer your question.  It would probably be best to incorporate it right after you put on your rings, right? You’ll already be facing each other and you’ll be wearing your rings.  Are you thinking of reading it? or having the priest read it?
