So, me and my fiance are going to be doing the “tying the knot” ceremony instead of a unity candle/sand. We’re going to be tying the double fisherman’s hitch/hook. However, our colors are peach, white, and a steel-blue accent. My question is where did you guys get your cords? I haven’t looked too hard yet, but I dont know where a good place is to get a peach colored rope/cord that will work well enough to tie that knot.

We’re doing a handfasting, and we made our own cords out of ribbon.

We are also doing a handfasting and using cords made out of ribbon from Michaels and Joann Fabrics.

this is the knot we’re doing. But we are doing a double instead of a triple. I’m afraid that the ribbon wont be able to hold the knot..

@ohmybears48: @vorpalette: SOOO jealous. I’m still working on bringing up a handfasting to Boyfriend or Best Friend, but when he saw it on Offbeat Bride once he made a comment that while HE liked it. his family (and hell, mine too) might see as “witchy.” I looked over at my altar sitting 5 feet away, looked back at him, and went “…well?” They can get over it 🙂

@Caila: What about this? Unfortunately, rope/paracord doesn’t come in peach. There’s also this stuff, but neither of those are as substantial as actual rope.
@badabing88: Fiance really liked the idea, but I said that people could get over it, too. We have LOTS of very religious people in our families, but they’re not the ones getting married!

I made cords out of satin jewelry cords. I got 6 strands and did a 6 strand braid they look great.
