Rose Wedding Ceremony

The timeless and romantic Rose Ceremony is well suited for any wedding celebration. The charm behind the Rose Ceremony is in the visual representation of the love the Bride and Groom have for each other. On this special day, it is important to acknowledge the love that you have along with the love of the extended families that will also be united by this marriage.

The rose ceremony is incredibly versatile and can be easily customized to accommodate various family situations or personal preferences. Guidelines rather than hard rules will allow you to create a meaningful ceremony best suited to you.

The Red Rose Promise Card should be filled out prior to the ceremony. The card is intended to be a signed and dated keepsake of the wedding day. A rose should be handed out to each individual that will be included in the ceremony. This can be done before the ceremony or at an alternate designated time. Those included might be family members, children or even the Bridal Party, depending on the preference of the couple. The Officiant will then place on rose in each of the outer vases to represent the bride and Groom.

At a pre-chosen time, those who have been given a rose will place them into the central vase as a representation of the love they have for the Bride and Groom. As an option, the Bride and groom may choose to collect the roses from the individuals and place the resulting rose bouquet in the central vase themselves.

After the vows have been completed and the Officiant announced the new Mr. and Mrs. They will then each be handed the roses from the outer vases, while the guests are informed of the meaning behind the ceremony. It is appropriate that the first gift the Bride and Groom give to each other as husband and wife should be love. As a singled rose carries the meaning “I love you,” they will then exchange their roses and give the greatest gifts that either one of them has to share.

After the exchange has been completed the Bride and Groom will then place their new roses into the central vase, merging their love with the love of their family and friends.

Alternately the Bride and Groom may choose to present their symbolic rose to their parents as opposed to adding it to the bouquets created in the central vase.
