We did! They had many options at a Spanish bridal store in my neighborhood, but ultimately my MIL bought one for us in the Philippines. It was an ivory silk cord with silk flowers gathered at the center. You could totally make your own.

I am! I think it looks like a rope with flowers and ribbon on it.  I am not 100% sure…the lady who actually picked it out wanted to the get the rosary beaded type but I guess they told her those were bad luck……personally I’m not superstisious so I was kind of off-put when they told me that’s why she chose the other one (she liked the beaded one better!)  kind of a strange way to run a shop if you ask me….

I dont think that the beaded ones are bad luck but the flower ones are considered to be good luck so thats probably what they were trying to tell her. I am doing the beaded kind just because I think they are prettier. In any case don’t the padrinos buy that?

We are using a laso.  FMIL is getting us a flower lasso to go with our nature-inspired theme.  If you make your own, you can really use anything you want.  I’ve never seen a ribbon lasso; that sounds pretty and unique.  What’s your theme?

Hi There! We did the Lasso ceremony for our wedding last November. My Aunt made us the Lasso, she’s amazing at that sort of thing. She used rope & flowers for ours. I think you could easily make one. You could maybe ask someone to make on for you, I bet a family member would be thrilled to contribute in that way.

@DanielleZara:

A winery sounds beautiful!  I agree that a floral lasso would be pretty and would go with your setting, maybe even a lasso made of a grapevine!  If you don’t mind something artificial, I found some ivy garlands at Dollar Tree as part of our budget wedding decor.  Perhaps you could use them to make your own lasso; your guests probably wouldn’t even know it wasn’t real from where they’d be sitting.  Or to go with your vintage theme, you might try thrift stores or estate sales.  Good luck!

Yes….ours was made of crystals with a crucifix at the end.  We were able to find it for really cheap in a lil shopping strip that had several bridal stores.  We paid only $100 and it was beautiful.
