Oh, that’s a cool idea.  I think I’d talk to your priest, though?  It comes down to what he feels is appropriate.

Actually I think sometimes they do include something similar. I know for sure in our Anglican ceremony it’s there, and that’s pretty similar to a Catholic ceremony!

Yeah, i’d ask the priest. But I’ve been to Catholic weddings where the congregation is asked to pray for the couple and people reach out a hand to pray over the couple (from their pews) and the priest leads everyone in a prayer. Maybe the priest could add something to the prayer along the lines that you are thinking of the support of family and friends.

I’ve seen it numerous times and I personally think it’s a good way to include everyone in your wedding!

In the Anglican/Episcopal service, this is standard, but it comes after the bride and groom’s consents (Do you…take …to be your ….?) and before the vows.  In a sense, it is part of the “consent” rather than part of the “marriage contract.”

In any case, I think it is beautiful, and makes explicit want people are implicitly saying by being there–that they support you both and your marriage.

You do this at baptisms, don’t you? The church vows to assist in raising the child in the faith? I think it’d be the same idea at a wedding!
