Ring Warming Ceremony

During a ring warming, the couple’s wedding rings are passed among their guests, who are asked to say a prayer, blessing, or make a special wish for the couple over the rings while holding them.  This intimate exchange brings all of the loving thoughts of the couple’s families and friends into the rings that the couple will be wearing for a lifetime. It brings an inclusive element of the ceremony and connects the couple with their loved ones in attendance.  As your partner places the ring on your finger, you will truly feel all the love and warmth rush over you as you realize that each and every guest has blessed this ring for you.  It is Very Special!

Since this is a fairly new trend and somewhat non-traditional, there’s a good chance many of your guests will have never heard of it or understand it. You may want to consider asking your officiate to explain its meaning or adding an explanation in your wedding program about how the ring warming ceremony works and why it is important to you. When your rings finally come to rest upon your hand, they will contain not only the love you have for one another, but also the love, hope and pledge of support of all those that you love.

Obviously, there are limitations to a ring warming: it wouldn't work well for super large weddings, and if you're having a big wedding you may want to have someone watching the progress of the rings and keeping them moving in a timely manner through your guests.

If you are having this ceremony outdoors or on the beach,it is a good idea to affix them to a box or shell so not to take the chance of dropping them.You may also Some people worry about rings getting dropped during the ceremony — if you like, you can affix them to a pillow or book or some other symbolic item for the passing.

 
"Christina was great to work with. Planning a Florida beach wedding from Indiana would have been very difficult for us. Christina put everything together including the location, the officiant and the photographer as well as offering great ideas and additions to our ceremony. Every email was answered right away and each change was accommodated. Our ceremony was EXACTLY what we wanted. I highly recommend Weddings By Christina!"   ~   Read More »
