For the Sentimental Newlywed in All of Us: Ring Warming Ceremonies

A few months back, I started to see quips on wedding sites about Ring Warming Ceremonies.  At first, I was like, “Whaaaaa?”… considering the title alone could ensue a schmillion different outcomes, but over the course of time, I’ve come to realize, the more I read about them, the more I love about them!

Ring warming ceremonies are a growing trend among many couples who are looking to have a more interactive ceremony with their guests.  Generally working better for smaller, more intimate ceremonies, the concept of a ring warming ceremony is simple and sentimental.

Before your ceremony begins, have the officiant announce to your guests that your wedding rings will be making their way around the congregation.  Then, during the service, as they weave in and out of the hands of friends and family, each guest will have the opportunity to hold the rings briefly and either silently say a prayer, blessing or thoughtful wish for your union.  Then, by the time they make their way back to you for the vows, your wedding rings will have all your friends and family’s love stamped on them! 

I mean, come on!  How stinkin’ cute is that?!?  Of course, this would be a wee bit more difficult to do at a  really large wedding, but as always, that would be at the discretion of each couple.

And, if you like the idea of having a very interactive ceremony but worry about your rings getting dropped or lost, consider placing them in a small bag or tying them together with fabric.

It’s most def a growing trend and can be a wonderful way to make all of your guests feel as though they’ve actively participated in your union.  No matter what you decide, just remember to always stick to the golden rule… and make it all about you!  Hehe ;)
