Etched Navajo Wedding Vase

Native American Wedding Vase

The meaning: The wedding vase symbolizes two lives coming together as one.  The two spouts represent the two separate lives.  The bridge at the top unites the two lives.  The wedding couple will cherish their wedding vase throughout their married life.

The ceremony: The future husband’s parents traditionally provide the wedding vase. On the wedding day the vase is filled with holy water and given to the bride.  The bride drinks from one side of the vessel while the groom partakes from the opposite side.
