tanya4285: I love that you are doing a handfasting! I’m trying to incorporate one into my Catholic ceremony… we’ll see how that goes.
There are some good resources on the Bee (http://www.weddingbee.com/find/?search=handfasting#axzz2vVGaK5wM)
An example from one bee…
BLESSING OF HANDS
“These are the hands of your best friend, strong and full of love for you.
They are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow and forever.
These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future.
These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years,
And with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.
These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind.
These are the hands that will, countless times, wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy.
These are the hands that will help you hold your family as one.
These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.
And lastly; these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours,
Still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.”
