Mother’s Rose Ceremony

The Mother’s Rose Ceremony is a way of honoring the Bride & Groom’s mothers and showing their gratitude for the love bestowed upon them.

Mother’s Rose Ceremony 1

Marriage is a coming together of two lives, and a celebration of the love of two people.

But it is more.

The love that you feel for one another is the flowering of a seed your mothers planted in your hearts many years ago.

When you were first born, you were a bundle of diapers and tears, and your mothers lost sleep caring for you.

Their love for you has brought them great happiness and great challenges, and their love did not diminish as they met these challenges.

That is the great lesson you can bring into your marriage.

As you embrace one another in your love, so too do you embrace the families that have been brought together on this happy occasion.

As a token of your gratitude for your families, I would like to ask you to offer these symbols of eternal love, these roses, to your mothers.

Today, as they embrace each other in their love, they also embrace the families, which have come together on this happy occasion.

As a sign of their love for their families, BRIDE and GROOM would like to offer these roses, to their mothers as symbols of their eternal love.

These Roses are a promise that no matter how far away you are that you are not forgotten and that you are always in their hearts.

This wedding celebration is a joining of two unique families who stood separate until today.

Today we unite these families by the marriage of BRIDE and GROOM.

BRIDE and GROOM would each like to honor the separateness of their families and now, the togetherness, with the giving of a rose to their mothers.

They would also like to acknowledge the love and sacrifice that each mother has made to make her children who they are today – – a man and woman who are ready to be in a committed, loving marriage of their own.

It is only out of families that new families emerge.

Today, the flowers that are placed here symbolize your separate lives and that of your individual families.

BRIDE and GROOM, you come to this moment from these families and the new emerges from the old, the present from the past.

I ask that you take these flowers, symbols of your appreciation, love, respect, and admiration, and present them to your mothers.
