Wedding Ceremony Symbolism of Sharing a Drink


For a marriage ceremony to be legal, there are few simple requirements.  After that, a couple may create a wedding ceremony that is both personal and unique.


One of the ways partners personalise their wedding ceremony is by sharing a drink of wine immediately after the ceremony to mark their union as a husband and wife.


Words accompanying this wedding ritual can be delivered by the celebrant, either the parents of the bride or groom, or one of the bridal attendants.

There's a number of different ways this wedding ritual can be enacted.


In the first one, wine is poured into one glass or a goblet and is presented to the bride and groom in turn.


Other couples will pour white wine in one container, and red wine in the second container, and the bride and groom, in turn, will pour the wine into a third container from which they take a sip. 


This is more in the nature of a unity ceremony - the merging of two into one. Also, some wedding couples see this as a great opportunity to buy the so-called lover's cup - with the two handles - and keep it as a memento of their wedding day, and their commitment to each other.


Of course, for the purpose of the ceremony, the bride and groom don't have two use wine. I had one couple who preferred to use soft drink as the ceremony was being conducted in public gardens, and the reception was taking place somewhere else.
