The wedding goblet has a deep, spiritual meaning for an engaged couple. The outside pieces of wood represent each person. The middle wood, always the lighter wood, represents God, the Light. Their faith in Him and staying centered in Him will be the glue that holds them together. Many couples use the goblet in their wedding ceremony to receive their first communion as man and wife.
