4 – The Rose Ceremony

One version of the rose ceremony occurs after the vows and rings have been exchanged. The officiant asks the bride and groom to exchange a rose as the first gift as husband and wife, and talks about the couple setting up a special place in their home where a rose can be placed to deliver a message of love when words fail.

Another version is to have the bride and/or groom present a rose to their mother. This is usually done at the beginning of the ceremony with the officiant saying,

‘The bride and groom wish to begin their ceremony with a symbolic gift of love and gratitude to the women who gave the bride and groom life – their mothers.’

This is always so touching especially when the mothers are surprised.
