FI and I are both marrying for the second time. We plan on including communion in the cermony but are having a difficult time deciding on HOW we want to do it. We will at least be taking communion ourselves. We would very much like to offer communion to all of the guests as well, additionally, we want to actually serve the communion. We have music selected for communion and want this part of the cermony to last longer than 30 seconds (if only we partake).
FI suggested that we can each be in front with the bread and "wine" and ask those who want to partake, to come forward. We could also pass the bread and "wine" down the rows like it is done in many churches.
Any of you have thoughts, suggestions, or ideas on this?
PS Our pastor is fine with letting us decide how we want it done.
