Last Kiss Before the First Kiss

Here's a clever idea to celebrate a special moment for the bride and groom and their mothers during the ceremony.

In the wedding ceremony just before the "first kiss" as wife and husband, the minister calls the mothers of the bride and groom forward and says the following:

Minister: The mother's of the bride and groom will now come forward as we honor them as mothers and to help us with the next part of the ceremony.

Both mothers come forward and stand next to their child.

And now Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time for _______ and _______'s last kiss as singles before they become wife and husband. __(Bride)__ and her mother, __(Brides' mother)__ and __(Groom)__ and his mother __(Groom's mother)__, will now offer this kiss.

These mother's lips were the first to kiss them and bring them into this world and today a mother's love - together with their blessings - will be first to send them on their way to their new life together as wife and husband.

Mothers. . . please kiss the Bride and Groom!

This is a very tender and poignant and sometimes emotional moment for the mothers, the bride and groom and also for the guests.
