If you would like to include all of your guests in a ceremony enhancement, the wishing stones option is a lovely enhancement to any ceremony.
You and your partner may collect stones from your favourite beach or you can purchase washed and polished stones or engraved stones in your local bargain stores.
As your guests enter the ceremony venue, a child/children give a stone to each guest as they enter. Or you may place a stone on each seat.
Soon into the ceremony, I will explain to the guests that the couple would like you to warm the stones in the palm of your hands, during the ceremony and to place your good intentions, hopes and wishes for our couple as they enter into their married lives together.
At the end of the ceremony, either a child/children collect the stones in a basket/baskets, or the guests drop the stone into a container of your choice as they exit the wedding venue.
The couple takes the basket/baskets or container of their choice home to their living room and each and every time they see the wishing stones it reminds them of their wonderful wedding day and the good wishes bestowed upon them.
