Ok, we are already planning on having:
jaras (13 coins)
In addition of course there are:
I’d love to add the letter box ceremony as one of the bloggers mentioned recently. The reason I’d like to add it is we had originally talked about writing our own vows but Fiance really is not the best with words and I can tell he is very self conscious about it. Of course, I don’t want him to be uncomfortable. So, I thought it would ease his anxiety to only write me a letter expressing himself that only I will read. Right?
However, with everything already going on, I don’t know if this would just be too too much. What do you think hive?

Hmmm, could you maybe do the letter box ceremony privately, before or after the wedding? My husband and I wrote secret letter to each other for the wedding; we opened them on the way to the reception, and it was such a special moment. If you have a few minutes after the ceremony to spend a little alone time, you could do it then. Or maybe you could do the letter box ceremony at the reception? I do agree that 4 ceremonies in the middle of the wedding ceremony seem like a lot…

I like the idea of making the letter box privately… Especially since it would be an awfully lot of ceremonies in one. (If you are doing a first look, I’d say do it then!)

I agree – that’s a lot of rituals to have in one ceremony. You could do standard vows or simply say “I do,” and then exchange private notes or cards after or before the ceremony as well.
Though, honestly, it’s your wedding, and if you want to include the wine box in it – do it.

It’s a lot of ceremonies/rituals, but every wedding I’ve gone to in the SW seems to have a lot (lasso ceremony, jaras (13 coins), unity candle, wedding vows, rings, praying to Mary, etc). It just depends on what you want and what you feel is important to you as a couple.
