I know it’s been on here a million times BUUUUUT we’re doing an outdoor ceremony and I don’t want to have a candle and I don’t want sand but I was thinking of doing maybe the hand binding ceremony but I’m not sure actually if we’ll do anything at all …. so 2 questions….
1. What ideas do you ladies have for an alternative?
2. If you did/are doing a hand binding ceremony, can you outline kind of what you’re doing for it?
Thanks in advance!

We didn’t do anything, we had our vows and that was it. Short and sweet.
BUT I always thought the love letters/wine box ceremony was really cool.
You each write a letter to eachother about why you are getting married, why you love eachother etc, seal them without reading them and put them in a wine box with a bottle of wine and 2 glasses. Then in the future if you two ever go through a really rough patch and are forgetting the reasons you got married, you open the letters while sharing the bottle of wine…or something along those lines.
I thought it was an awesome idea.

@mrsreid: Oh that is really cute! We are planning on writing letters to one another to exchange right before we get married so that would go right along with it!
Any other ideas?? Keep them coming! 🙂
