Gulf Beach Wedding wishes - Blessing Stones Ceremony
Blessing Stone History
Throughout history, stones have marked important events in the lives of people. The sites of important battles are marked with monument stones. The passing of a loved one is marked with stones of remembering.
The modern symbol of the casting of the stone of blessing on the water has evolved. When a wish or blessing is made over a stone and cast into the water, the waves will wash the blessing back to person to be blessed. It is repeated over and over with the passing of each wave.
So here is my blessing for you both:
“May your love for each other grow deeper and stronger each time the wave strikes the shore!”
Then others may make a blessing and toss a stone.
