So then came the question, what to do with our rings?
We thought about having a ring warming ceremony.
We then decided that it would probably just be best to have the best man, his brother, hold onto both of the rings throughout the ceremony. But having him just keep them in his pocket made me nervous. I saw these ring pouches early on in the planning process.
Then, like many other brides, I came across the Etsy seller, palomasnest. I became obsessed! Those cute little ring bowls were just so darn cute. And although they could be personalized, they would have a life after the wedding.
We decided on putting lyrics from our first dance song on the bowl (which is actually our song, and will be the longer version of what we have engraved on our rings) along with our wedding date. Here it is!
I will add a dark purple satin ribbon instead of the twine. We will tie our rings around it and then the best man will keep the bowl in his hands throughout the ceremony.
