Rose Ceremonies

I recently worked with a bride and groom who decided to incorporate a Rose Ceremony into their wedding. The officiant called upon the bride and groom to give single long-stem roses to each of their mothers as a symbol of their eternal love and gratitude to their parents; the people who taught them about love in the first place.

Many times couples will exchange roses during the ceremony; this stems (excuse the pun) from an ancient tradition which is part of the pagan handfasting and is still very much a part of European weddings today. However, I think it is a beautiful way to honor parents (or mothers) in a wedding ceremony and I thought I’d pass it along!
