My fiance and I are a deeply religous couple, so as a part of our ceremony, to represent serving one another through our lifetimes we are going to wash each other's feet. We need to find a basin or bowl big enough to wash feet in. However, I want it to be pretty. Any ideas?

The ceremony is taking place outside, my dress is vintage 40's inspired, we're both pretty outdoorsy people (he is a whitewater raft guide). Our colors are chocolate and orange. Any ideas would be appriciated. Perhaps even an idea for the towel and wash cloth we'll use to wash and dry our feet?

You could look at thrift/antique shops for nice punch bowls--those should be big enough, and very pretty. You could also look for a pretty wooden salad bowl, some of those might be the right size.

I am picturing a real antique wash basin... Maybe porcelain and cracked a little so you can see that blackish color underneath.
Could be very romantic!

If you can't find the "perfect" one, maybe embellish the basin with flowers. That makes anything look beautiful!

I have a metal bin/ basin thingy that I bought at a party supply store for $20 and use for parties to serve cold beverages.  

You could buy one, paint it and even stencil it so it looks vintage-y and keep it for entertaining, storing throws or afghans.......so you always have that lovely reminder in your home.

I agree with the antique porcelain idea - that's exactly what I was picturing.  Whatever you get though - think about this - it will be least ackward if your feet can rest on the bottom of the basin.  So I'd make sure the bottom of the basin is big enough for your feet - not just the top.  With a punch bowl - I have visions of top-heavy-knocking-overness.

I think it's an awesome idea btw!

The antique washbasin would be awesome. It would be plain and simple to keep the attention on the act and the meaning of it.  I would float some roses or other flowers in it to make it beautiful but still keep it simple. I think floating flowers are romantic.

 I think that is so cool that you are doing that.

Check out your garden centers for either a wash basin or galvenized style "planter".

Check out your feed and seed stores for galvenized containers; they come in oval as well.

Check out your housewares departments in discount stores through gourmet stores for an oval pasta bowl.

If you're using this as a foot washing vessle, you might find something in a second hand store or even collectables store with damage on it at a more affordable price than mint condition -  that won't necessarily show 2-10 feet away.
