Rose Ceremony

 

 

 

 

 

In the Rose Ceremony, the Bride and Groom give each other a red rose bud. Two red rose buds are all that is necessary. If you have children

 

 

 

involved in the ceremony, you may have a rose for each of them too. The Rose Ceremony is placed near the end of the ceremony just "after"

 

 

 

being pronounced husband and wife.

 

 

 

 

 

This ceremony is what I call an "add-on" ceremony. It is intended to be added into the wedding or renewal of vows ceremony.

 

 

 

In the old language of flowers, a single red rose has always meant "I love you". The Rose ceremony gives recognition to the new and most

 

 

 

honorable title of "Wife and Husband".

 

 

 

This ceremony originates in a classic rose ceremony from a lost and elegant age. It was rewritten by the Hon. Mark Ovard and rewritten

 

 

 

again by us explaining the true meaning of the ceremony - and in ways that can endure through your married life together - this is a unique

 

 

 

and meaningful addition to any marriage ceremony. It will also inspire your guests.

 

 

 

 

 

Hot Idea: Here is our new twist to this ceremony. As the couple exits the alter area some will often walk to their mothers and present the

 

 

 

rose buds to them immediately following the ceremony. The groom hands the mother of the bride his rose, and the bride hands her rose

 

 

 

bud to the groom's mother, whispering "I love you," or "I'm happy to be a part of the family," (perhaps a brief hug would be nice) before

 

 

 

proceeding with their exit - knowing that love is not love until you give it away! This is a nice way of involving the mothers in the

 

 

 

ceremony. Chose to not tell the mothers if you will be doing this - let it be a surprise. Be sure to tell the photographer. You will want to

 

 

 

capture this special moment.

NOTE:   Red roses can also be used as simply a way for the Bride to recognize her mother and the mother of the Groom during the wedding

 

 

 

ceremony. This rose honorarium is not to be confused with "The Rose Ceremony" above.
