We went to the craft store this weekend and picked out our ribbon and beads and charms. We each picked one ribbon for me, him, and us and three charms each for me, him, and us plus some matching beads for the ends. I braided it while saying prayers and meditating. It’s full of so much live I swear it radiates energy.

Thanks you guys, it turned out even better than expected. I can’t wait to frame it in a shadowbox with a wedding photo.

That’s beautiful! We made ours not long ago as well! I love the idea of a shadowbox with a wedding photo, I think that will look lovely. 🙂 I really like the colors you guys picked, and the charms are awesome.

I see a lot of people doing only one long cord. However some older or Renaissance style photos seem to show multiple cords. I found a ceremony that I worked into our wedding with a sort of 5-question line, each followed by a “binding”. I am currently working on 5 separate cords. Did anyone do that? Or is it almost always just one cord that gets wrapped around multiple times?
I kind of like having a bundle of the 5 different cords just curious how anyone else went about it. I’ll try to show pictures when I finish them up.

@WitchyHomemaker: Depending on the region or time people used one cord, or multiple cords. Sometimes the couple would be tied with up to 50 cords, as their families came and bound them together.
