Incorporating a ring warming into your wedding is such a special way to involve all of your guests in your ceremony.
A ring warming is when you give your loved ones the opportunity to hold and instill your wedding bands with a wish, blessing or prayer for your marriage. By the time your rings make it on to your fingers they will be saturated with the love of your friends and family.
I also think that this is a fantastic option for couples having a non-religious ceremony but want to consider their religious loved ones. With a ring warming everyone will be welcome to take a moment to bring their own beliefs into your ceremony in a private but meaningful way.
You will want to put someone in charge of your ring warming, to explain to guests how it works and make sure that it runs smoothly.
Depending on the type of ceremony you’re having you have a few options. The most common option is to pass the rings around throughout the ceremony and have your ring chaperone(s) keep an eye on things to make sure the rings are moving along and will be ready when it is time. If you have a larger guest list you may want to have everyone “warm” your rings as they arrive, before they take their seat.
If all of this just sounds like too much trouble but you still love the idea, you can always just do this with your parents and wedding party before the ceremony.
