One of the things I am having a hard time deciding on for our wedding is the unity ceremony.
There are traditional ones like the unity candle ceremony.
Since our ceremony is outside, this isn't the most practical option.
The wind could blow the candles out and we don't want to risk burning down the historic site we will be on.
Or we could go with the sand ceremony.
But we aren't really fond of this idea. Mainly because we are afraid it might get messed up with transportation between the wedding ceremony and our future home.
I am really considering doing a tree ceremony.
The parents of the bride and groom can add soil to a tree in a pot.
Then the bride and groom can either water it or add soil themselves.
The bride and groom can then plant the tree in the yard of their first home.
The last option is a Love letter ceremony.
The couple writes love letters to each other before the ceremony and then place them in a locked box to be opened on a specific date. Most likely on their first wedding anniversary. I like this idea too.
Which one would you/did you use?
