The wine ceremony is usually held later in the order of service.

I agree that it has to be later in the ceremony. You cannot have a blending or bringing together ceremony without having said something besides introductions.

Here’s what we did:
After mothers walked down aisle, they each took a small carafe (one red, one white) and poured into a glass next to the carafe.
About 2/3 way through, ourofficiants introduced the idea. We are interfaith, so we tied the wine to the blending of culture and religion, and how the process of making wine is like a marriage. We used the Hebrew wine blessing. This came right after a friend did a reading (the last reading of the ceremony). My brother played acoustic guitar while she read and throughout the wine ceremony. We each poured the two glasses into one glass, and sipped together after the blessings and listened to the rest of the song.
Pm me if you’d like the script we used.
