Wedding Ministers for a Rose Ceremony

We can perform a Rose Ceremony.
Looking for an elegant touch to your wedding ceremony?  You might try a rose ceremony.  There are essentially 2 different ways to incorporate a rose into a wedding.  But please remember this important fact:  this is your wedding ceremony and you can present a rose in any way that feels right to you.  Here are some suggestions:

A Rose to Mothers of the Bride and Groom
is usually done at the beginning of the wedding ceremony.  Either the bride and groom can offer a rose to each mother after the presentation of the bride, or they can give a rose at the beginning of the ceremony after prompting by the wedding officiant.  The ceremony officiant could say:
"This wedding celebration is a joining of two unique families who stood separate until today.  Today we unite these families by the marriage of BRIDE and GROOM.  BRIDE and GROOM would each like to honor the separateness of their families and now, the togetherness, with the giving of a rose to their mothers.  They would also like to aknowledge the love and sacrifice that each mother has made to make her children who they are today - - a man and woman who are ready to be in a committed, loving marriage of their own."
(Bride and Groom, together, present a rose to each mother)

A Wedding Rose Ceremony is a part of the wedding ceremony that takes place usually after the wedding vows.  The Wedding Officiant or the Maid of Honor and Best Man can offer the rose to the Bride and the Groom at the appropriate moment.  Often a rose ceremony can go like this:

Officiant:  After the exchanging of rings, your first gift to each other, as husband and wife,  is a single rose.  The rose is a symbol of love so it is a appropriate that it is your first gift.

Please exchange your first gift as husband and wife.   (GROOM GIVES A ROSE TO BRIDE.)

GROOM:  (Bride's name)  I give you this rose as a symbol of my love. It began as a tiny, tightly closed bud and blossomed into this perfect rose that opened with the warmth of the sun, just as my love for you has grown in the warmth of your soul.


BRIDE:  (Groom's name)  I give you this rose as a symbol of my love. It began as a tiny, tightly closed bud and blossomed into this perfect rose that opened with the warmth of the sun, just as my love for you has grown in the warmth of your soul.

: GROOM and BRIDE, in remembrance of this day, as a reaffirmation of your love and of the vows you have spoken here today please give each other a single red rose each year on your anniversary.  In the best of marriages there are difficult times.  There are times of hurtful words, times of neglect, times when we must wait patiently to be together again.  Those may be times when the words you really need to speak are difficult.  I ask that you remember this moment and that when words fail you, that you place a single rose on your spouse's pillow as a way to say, "I remember our vow,"  and "I love you".  Let this exchanging of roses be the beginning of a lifelong tradition of unspoken love.
