So instead of the overused sand ceremony we wanted to do something different, our whole wedding will be different and unique. So I came up with the idea that at the ceremony every parent and grandparent will have a single rose on their chair. At some point durring the ceremony they will all come up and put the rose in a vase. Then me and my groom will each add a rose. After doing so we will each pour water into the vase. The meaning will be two family's bring husband and wife together and so now they are one. Has anyone done anything like this? I'm trying to think of a way for the pastor to announce what we are doing instead of just getting up and doing it.
