The ceremony is a major commitment to not only your fiancé(e) but also to your family. Not sure how to symbolize it in a sentimental way? Here are five ideas:
Display your devotion by washing each other’s feet. Take off your shoes (and socks!), choose a chair, place a towel in a pitcher of water, and lightly lather.
Purchase a beautiful gardenia bush to plant in a pot together. Watch each and every guest water the soil to watch “love” grow.
If one grew up on the East Coast, and the other grew up on the West Coast. Scoop up some sand along the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Combine into one container.
Wrap a round-shaped rope around the center of each other’s hands. It is to show that you, as individuals, are infinitely bound.
Ask parents to light a small candlestick at the side of the altar. Then, ask parents to light a large candlestick at the center of the altar.
