If you and your FI are planning on giving your mothers roses, when do you plan to give them during the ceremony? Thanks!

We actually just got finished our vows and everything a little while ago. We are having more of a family oriented ceremony so we had to include the rose presentations. For us, it comes at the beginning. The officient asks each of our parents if they offer us their goodwill and welcome the other into the family. After the parents say "We Do" a rose is presented to the others mother. (ie. I will give his mom a rose and he will give mine a rose). We are also doing a sand ceremony (instead of unity candles), but it will be towards the end.

I dont think we will do this at our wedding-just an idea :)
At the end of the ceremony, some couples like to walk back into the sanctuary to escort their guests out. Say you start at the very front pew working back (your parents in the front), you could each carry a rose back in w/ you, and when you get up to the front pew w/ your parents-you could each hand your mother a rose.
When I first heard of that idea-I thought it was so cute.
This way the mothers dont have to hold onto it throughout the entire ceremony, they have it just before they leave! :)

I'm doing this. As I walk down the aisle, I'll have two loose roses tucked in my bouquet with a small ribbon tied around them. As I get close towards the end where the moms will be seated, I will take one rose, give it to my mother and kiss her and the other to my mother in law. They will be seated at the edge of the aisle. I thought it would be a nice suprise for them!

Ask your floral designer to design two detachable floral sprays into your bouquet. After your father walks you down the aisle, just before he turns to leave you and take his seat, remove one of the special flowers from your bouquet. Hand it to him and give him a kiss. Let him know in advance that this will take place and tell him that as he takes his seat in the pew with your mother, he is to present the flower to her on your behalf. Or if your mother is standing there with you, present the flower directly to her.
Then at the conclusion of the ceremony, as you begin to make your way back up the aisle as husband and wife, stop at the pew where your mother-in-law is seated. Remove the second special flower from your bouquet and present it to her, along with a kiss, before continuing up the aisle.
Don't tell the moms in advance that this will be taking place! It is the element of surprise which helps to make this so very sweet and special. There will not be a dry eye in the place...

The Rose ceremony is gorgeous, I would do it but my FH's sister did at her wedding last yr. We are doing Unity Sand and including our mothers, and then FH's sister and my Borther will poor sand on behalf (in memory) of family who are unable to attend.
