Want Something Different Than A Unity Candle or Sand Ceremony?
Consider trying a 'Ring Warming.' The idea is simple, near the beginning of your ceremony, your officiant lets guests know your rings will be making their way through the guests, he/she invites each guest to hold the rings and say a silent prayer/blessing for your marriage and infuse them with their physical, emotional, and spiritual warmth, and then pass it to the next guest. After the announcement the officiant passes out the rings, and continues on with the ceremony until it's time for you and your partner to present the rings to each other. This is only suitable for smaller weddings or you won't get the rings back in time for you to say you vows! So plan with care. But it sounds like such a nice way to have everyone wish you well. You may want to attach the rings to a pillow so that no one drops them and has to scramble around on the floor picking them up!
