Roses to Mothers

A simple, yet nice way to symbolize your union as a couple during a wedding ceremony is to offer roses to mothers, grandmothers, and other special persons in your life.  This is usually done after the vows to symbolize the coming together of two families and the blending of all involved.  I have a favorite passage that I use regularly.

"Marriage is a coming together of two lives, and a celebration of the love of two people.  But it is more...Today, as [name and name] embrace one another in their love, they also embrace the families which have come together to celebrate this happy occasion. [name and name] will now offer roses to their mothers [names of mothers]."
