on Celtic tradition, this is a perfect unity ceremony for a beachside
wedding. A basket of small stones, decorative or not, with a small
notecard is passed amongst the guests. The officiant will ask the
wedding guests to please make a wish for the bridal couple and asks them
to write their wish down on the notecard, then instructs the guests what
to do with the stones and notecard. Immediately following the
ceremony, the guests are to toss their stone into the water and place the
notecard with their wish into a basket specifically for this purpose.
This can also be done at the reception, with each guest placing their
stone into a decorative container for the bridal couple to keep.
