As i was looking through the many options for a wedding ceremony, candle, sand… ect, the wine ceremony and the Celtic Loving cup ceremony caught my eye. I liked both ideas. The symbolism is very deep and I like that. The problem is that both of the ceremonies involve wine. I understand that it is the wine that is most symbolic and i really like the deep real symbolism that the wine ceremony involves, but on our wedding day i will be 18 years old and my Fiance will only be 20. Is it appropriate for us to have a wine ceremony since both of us are below the legal drinking age.

@pltwin: Depends on where you have the ceremony I guess. People drink wine in church and say it’s the blood of Jesus and the police aren’t knocking down the doors.
If you have your wedding somewhere else though, you might run into a problem with underage consumption.

My guess it that you’d likely run into issues with underage consumption (although you’d have to ask to be sure and it may depend on the ceremony location). But if all else fails, couldn’t you do a similar ceremony with something besides wine? The symbolism would still be there with other non-alcoholic beverages too, wouldn’t it?

You could still do the wine ceremony, just not the celtic cup part. In that case the wine goes in the box and you drink it later…maybe you write in that it will be for your 5th anniversary?

If you still wanted to do a wine ceremony, why not use sparkling grape juice if you have to drink it as part of the ceremony and I agree about opening the other box on your 5th anniversary!
