I knew I didn’t want to do the unity candle or sand so I searched high and low for something that would be meaningful to me and my Darling Husband and incorporate the most important part of our marriage…The Lord.
When I came across the rope idea, I knew we had to go that route. Here are pictures from our rope braiding ceremony. The Green represents Darling Husband, the purple me and the white one is God. We did it to the song “As for Me and My House” by John Waller.
Now it hangs proudly on a wall near our kitchen where I will see it everyday.

@knvprincess143: What an awesome idea! Darling Husband and I had unity sand, but I really like what you and your Darling Husband did! Beautiful pics, by the way!

@knvprincess143: one of my best friends did this at her wedding and it was really touching! They had a close friend sing during it but I don’t remember the name of the song

Beautiful! That is called handfasting and is actually one of the oldest wedding traditions (being very common with Medieval Europe).
Also, the wedding itself is about unity, which alot of people don’t seem to realize oddly enough, so the mini-ceremonies aren’t even required.

@Ember78: It was not handfasting. We braided a rope, we didn’t tie our hands together. Although I always thought that sounded like a cool idea too.

So awesome!! I love that, and it really is the perfect representation of the 3 parts of a lasting Christian marriage (God, you, and your DH).
