Wedding ceremony rituals: ring warming
Hugely popular with my couples, is a Ring Warming. Designed to include your guests from the outset, I seat everyone a couple of minutes earlier than normal and instruct them that the rings will be passed between them in order that they can imbue them with a special wish or blessing for your marriage.
It can be a really lovely way to include everyone from the outset and I later refer to the rings holding their wishes when you come to exchange them.
There are a fabulous number of possible ways to hold the rings whilst they pass between your guests including: shells, small ring boxes, ribbons, cushions and so on. More suggestions can be found on my Pinterest page www.pinterest.com/costacelebrant.
Another way is to include your small guests as Ring Security putting them in charge of ensuring that the rings pass through your guests.
