We’re doing a love letter box, and considering a hand-fasting as well.

Nope, no unity candle, sand rituals, hand-fasting, etc. Just a lovely ceremony.

We’re not doing anything.  We discussed it all – unity candles, sand ceremonies, wine sharing, chocolate sharing, wine box, tree planting ceremony, water ceremony… none of it feels right for us, so we’re not including any rituals in our ceremony.

We didn’t do anything other than our vows and it was a lovely ceremony 🙂

We are planning on doing a hand-fasting ceremony. I was a little concerned when I keep reading about it being a wiccan ceremony. I continued looking and found a lot of information. I really like the idea of the hand fasting ceremony I watched a youtube video of one and it’s perfect for us.

I don’t think we’ll do any of these ceremonies either. None of them really seem to fit with our “style.”

Ceremony, kiss, that’s it! Candles, sand, etc… None of that is “us”. We want to keep it short and simple 🙂

No sand or candles for us either. I couldn’t find anything that we really loved, so short and sweet it is!

No candles, sand, handfasting, love letter box, etc.  We kind of figured that “unity” was inherent in its being a wedding.  We had the chuppah, ketubah, rings, seven blessings, and stamping on the glass, then called it a day.

We are doing the blessing of the hands “hand ceremony” in place of a unity candle or sand ceremony
