    The Blessing Stones (or Wishing Stones)

 Based 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.
