This Rose Ceremony occurs near the end of the ceremony, just before you are pronounced husband and wife.

Celebrant: “In the elegant language of flowers, a single red rose always means “I love you.”  (Groom’s Name) and (Bride’s Name) have chosen to give each other red roses, as a symbol of their love, and as their first gifts to each other as husband and wife.

(bride and groom exchange roses)

(Groom’s Name) and (Bride’s Name), I would ask that wherever you may make your home, that you choose a special location. And at those times when words fail, that you leave a red rose at that spot you have both selected — a rose that will say what matters more than all other words…”I still love you.” The other should accept this rose for the words that cannot be found, and remember the love and hope that you both have shared today.

(Groom’s Name) and (Bride’s Name), love has given you wings, and your journey begins.  It is love that brought you here today, and it is by love your marriage shall endure.”

Groom (handing his bride a white rose): “_____, take this rose as a symbol of my love. It began as a tiny bud and blossomed, just as my love has grown and blossomed for you.”

Bride (placing the rose into a bud vase filled with water): “I take this rose, as a symbol of your love, and place it into water, a symbol of life. For, just as this rose cannot live without water, I cannot live without you.”

Groom: “In remembrance of this day, I will give you a white rose each year on our anniversary, as a reaffirmation of my love and the vows spoken here today.”

Bride: “And I will refill this vase with water each year, ready to receive your gift, in reaffirmation of the new life you have given me and the vows spoken here today.”

Groom (joining hands with bride around vase): “And so, this white rose symbolizes my commitment to you today.
I vow to be a faithful husband to you, to comfort you, honor you, respect you, and cherish you all the days of my life.”

Bride: “And I vow to be a faithful wife to you, to comfort you, honor you, respect you, and cherish you all the days of my life”.

ALL CEREMONIES MUST INCLUDE THE MANDATORY LEGAL WORDING, WHICH YOUR CELEBRANT WILL EXPLAIN.
