Hi knotties! My FI And I are in the process of planning a unique ceremony to fit us. Since both of us are firefighters, we wanted to add an aspect of fire to our special day. We came up with the idea of a Fire Ceremony. We would have a fire pit (set up and pre-doused for easy lighting of course!) set up near the arches. Instead of the traditional floral bouquet, the bridesmaids would each have a small bundle of twigs / sticks bound with ribbon to match our color scheme. They would then place these bundles on the fire pit during the procession.
Post wedding vows, the parents would hand the bride and groom each a lit torch. We would then use our individual torches to light our own fire. This would then be followed by a Navajo blessing.
What do you ladies think? Good idea? Bad? I'd love to hear any advice or suggestions you might have! :-)
