One of my lovely couples wanted to know about alternatives to the Ring Exchange which usually follows your vows and symbolises your eternal commitment to one another.

However, your wedding ceremony should be exactly as you want it to be – it’s your day and it’s all about YOU!!!!

So, if one of you or both of you can’t wear rings for work or don’t want to exchange rings because you’re just not jewellery wearers or for any other reason here are a few alternative ideas…

Unity Ceremony


Ring Finger Tattoes

Message in a Bottle

Handwritten Vow Exchange

Exchange artwork

Tree Planting

Wine Lock Box

Exchange Lei’s

‘Blessing’ of the Hands

… or you could just simply exchange your vows then be pronounced Husband and Wife.
