Rose Ceremonies

Rose Ceremony I — For Mothers

 

(The Ceremony Table is directly behind Officiant.  On the Ceremony Table there is a flower (usually a red rose) for each mother.  A musical selection may play softly during the following:)

 

Officiant:  At this time the Couple would like to honor their mothers.

 

Officiant: Marriage is a coming together of two lives and a celebration of the love of two people. But it is more. The love that ___(Groom)_____ and ___(Bride)_____ feel for one another is the flowering of a seed that their mothers planted in their hearts years ago. Mothers plant so that their children may harvest and share this unconditional love that has been so freely given to them. 

 

Officiant: The Couple now wishes to thank their mothers for everything they have instilled in them and to acknowledge the many sacrifices that each of their mothers has made.  They also wish to give recognition to their mothers for the unconditional love they have so freely given to their children and to let them know that their love and support is very much appreciated.

 

(Officiant picks up the flowers from the Ceremony Table.)

 

Officiant:  Please take these flowers, which are symbols of your love and present them to your mothers as a reminder that they are always in their hearts.

 

(Officiant hands the Couple the flowers.  The volume of the music may be turned up as the Couple takes the flowers and, together, present them to each mother, offering the mothers kisses if they wish.  The music fades and stops as the Couple returns to their previous places.)

Rose Ceremony III —  Remembrance

 

(The Ceremony Table is directly behind Officiant.  On the Ceremony Table there are flowers (usually white roses) for those being remembered.  A musical selection may play softly during the following:)

 

Officiant:  At this time the Couple wishes to honor those loved ones who are not with us today.

 

Officiant: Marriage is a coming together of two lives and a celebration of the love of two people.  Today, as they embrace each other in their love, they wish to honor those whom they cannot embrace:  those not here to celebrate this happy occasion, the loved ones who have passed on.

 

(Officiant picks up the flowers from the Ceremony Table.)

 

Officiant:  As a symbol of remembrance for these loved ones, ___(Groom)_____ and ___(Bride)_____ would like to offer these flowers as an expression of their eternal love.

 

(The Officiant hands the Couple the flowers. The volume of the music may be turned up as the Couple takes the flowers and, together, place them on the Remembrance Table or on Remembrance Chairs.  The music fades and stops as Couple returns to their previous places.)

Rose Ceremony II —  For Family Members

 

(The Ceremony Table is directly behind Officiant.  On the Ceremony Table there is a flower (usually a red rose) for each family member being honored.  A musical selection may play softly during the following:)

 

Officiant:  At this time the couple wishes to honor their families.

 

Officiant: Today, as ___(Groom)_____ and ___(Bride)_____ embrace their commitment to one another, so they also embrace their families. The couple would like to acknowledge the love and sacrifice that their families have made and to thank them for everything they have instilled in them.

 

Officiant:  This wedding is also a celebration of family.  It is the blending of two families, separate up to this moment, but united from this day forward.  It is only out of families that new families emerge; blending their different traditions and strengthening the family tree.

 

Officiant:  ___(Groom)_____ and ___(Bride)_____ wish to honor this blending of families and to thank them for their wisdom, support, and unconditional love that has been so freely given to them throughout their lives.

 

(Officiant picks up the flowers from the Ceremony Table.)

 

Officiant: Please take these flowers, symbols of your separate lives and that of your individual families, and present them to your families as a reminder that they will always be in your hearts.

 

(Officiant hands the Couple the flowers.  The volume of the music may be turned up as the Couple takes the flowers and, together, present them to each family member being honored,  offering them kisses if they wish.  The music fades and stops as the Couple returns to their previous places.)

Rose Ceremony IV  — For Family Members and Remembrance

 

(The Ceremony Table is directly behind Officiant.  On the Ceremony Table there is a flower (usually a red rose) for each family member to be honored and a flower (usually a white rose) for each family member to be remembered.  A musical selection may play softly during the following:)

 

Officiant:  At this time the Couple wishes to honor their families and those loved ones who are not with us today.

 

Officiant: Today, as ___(Groom)_____ and ___(Bride)_____ embrace their commitment to one another, so they also embrace their families. The couple would like to acknowledge the love and sacrifice that their families have made and to thank them for everything they have instilled in them.  They also wish to honor those whom they cannot embrace:  those not here to celebrate this happy occasion, the loved ones who have passed on.

Officiant:  Please take these flowers, which are both a symbol of remembrance and a symbol of your love, and present them to your families as a reminder that they are always in your hearts.
