Ring Ceremony

happy mormon newlywedsIf you are being married in a house of worship that is exclusive to members, such as getting married in a Latter Day Saint temple, you may want to have a ring ceremony so that those who were unable to attend the actual marriage can still be a part of the wedding.

Tradition is that when a couple married they exchange rings after saying vows, and proclaiming their love for one another. Rings are a symbol of marriage and love. So, if you are having a ring ceremony, make it into a time where you proclaim your love and demonstrate it through the exchanging of rings. Don’t just hand one another rings and call it good.

So, write some vows to share as you exchange rings. For example, you might say, “I give you this ring as a symbol of my love and faithfulness. The act of giving this ring to you is the commitment of my heart and soul to you. I ask you to wear this ring as a reminder of the vows we have spoken today, our wedding day.” This is short and sweet, but still shows the significance and bearing the wedding ring plays.

“This ring is a token of my love. I marry you with this ring, with all that I have and all that I am.” With the response of “I will forever wear this ring as a sign of my commitment and the desire of my heart.”

If you are holding a separate ring ceremony from that of the wedding, take some time to find ring vows that really explain to your loved one the significance the wedding ring has to you, and what you want it to symbolize. Spend some time online looking at vows given during ring ceremonies, and choose one, or write your own.
