I’ve heard other brides on this forum saying they’re going to incorporate hand fasting into their wedding ceremony.  I didn’t realize that it’s traditionally a ceremony in itself.

Your mom must be sad that she’s missing out on your actual wedding, which is totally understandable for a mom.  Sometimes I think moms dream about their daughters’ weddings more than the daughters do!  Just curious, why do want your wedding to be private?

Also, you might want to consider if a wedding overseas will count legally in the US.  I’ve heard horror stories about getting married abroad on cruise ships and such, so you might want to look into that if you haven’t already!!

We did a handfasting in our wedding.  It was really unique.

I understand why your mom is upset about not being there when you get married, parents want to be there for the ceremony.  Is there any way that you could elope with your parents present?
