Your mothers can contribute soil from their family homes in glass containers – you can have the containers decorated and placed on a table near where you will stand for your ceremony. The soil can also come from other family members which represents a blending of lives. You can play music during the time you are plating the tree or you could also have a small container with a tree planted inside where you both add the soil. Music can be played during this part of the ceremony such as Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love”, as you – the Bride and Groom add the soil to the potted tree you will be planting in your at home together.

alt="Tree Planting CeremonyAnother way to have a Tree Planting Ceremony is to for the couple to choose a certain type of tree such as an apple tree or a pomegranate tree mentioned above that they’ll put in their first yard together.

Here’s an excerpt from the ceremony:

 “As we are here today, Groom and Bride’s marriage is like the velvety roots of this young, yet resolute sapling. As they have found each other and chosen to share their lives together, two roots will burrow through the mysterious unknown until they find their true counterpart. Intertwined, supporting and being supported by each other, they shall grow stronger in their union into endless depths. The soil they will use to nurture this young sapling has been gathered from the gardens of their parents’ homes. Fertile by nature and nourished with love and attention, this blend of life’s ingredients will be the foundation of great things to come.”

Here are some other wording options:

“Bride and Groom will now take part in a Tree Planting Ceremony, to symbolize the roots of their relationship, and the continued growth of their love, as they become each other’s family today.

Love is the essence of human experience and emotion. It is the root of all and everything we, as humans, do. Love richens our experience, and fills our lives with meaning. It gives us a firm base from which to grow, to learn, and change.  Let your relationship and your love for each other be like this tree you plant today. Let it grow tall and strong. Let it stand tall during the harsh winds and rains and storms, and come through unscathed. Like a tree, your marriage must be resilient. It must weather the challenges of daily life and the passage of time. And just like the tree you are planting, marriage requires constant nurturing and nourishment. Bride and Groom, would you please water the sapling? Remember to nourish each other, with words of encouragement, trust, and love. This is needed on a daily basis so you each can grow and reach your fullest potential – just like this tree. The Bride and Groom will plant this tree in their backyard to always be a symbol of their love for each other.”

Here are a couple of Ceremony Readings, Poems, and Quotes for your Tree Planting Ceremony also known as  Wedding Tree Unity Ceremony:

“Because they are primeval, because they outlive us, because they are fixed, trees seem to emanate a sense of permanence. And though rooted in earth, they seem to touch the sky. For these reasons it is natural to feel we might learn wisdom from them, to haunt about them with the idea that if we could only read their silent riddle rightly we should learn some secret vital to our own lives; or even, more specifically, some secret vital to our real, our lasting and spiritual existence.”

– Kim Taplin, “Tongues in Trees: Studies in Literature and Ecology”

“Two Trees

A portion of your soul has been entwined with mine.

A gentle kind of togetherness,

While separately we stand.

As two trees deeply rooted

in separate plots of ground,

While their topmost branches come together,

Forming a miracle of lace against the heavens.”

– Janet Mills, “The Power of a Woman: Timeless Thoughts on a Woman’s Inner Strengths”

“In a cool solitude of trees

Where leaves and birds a music spin,

Mind that was weary is at ease,

New rhythms in the soul begin.”

– William Kean Seymour, “The Cats of Rome: New and Selected Poems”

“It was as though we’d been living for a year in a dense grove of old trees, a cluster of firs, each with its own rhythm and character, from whom our bodies had drawn not just shelter but perhaps even a kind of guidance as we grew into a family.” – David Abram, “Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology”

“Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” – Robert H. Schulleralt="Tree Planting Ceremony"
