Yes! We are doing handfasting!^^  Your tartan is so lovely! I actually wanted to use tartan to bind our hands together since my family background is Scottish and FI’s is not (ie. doubling the ritual to make it a welcoming of Fiance into our clan); however, I don’t think that is going to be possible.  I think we might end up using cords in our wedding colours instead.  I took a version of a handfasting ceremony I found from the Internet modified it slightly (FI’s first language is Korean, so I tried to simplify some of the responses so he wouldn’t get messed up in the English in a moment of stress!)

The origin I believe of the expression, Tying the Knot.  It last for more than a year and a day (wink).

We’re doing a handfasting too! We’re going to use cords instead of my family’s tartan, though.

I think we might do handfasting! I should probably figure that out pretty soon…his family is part Irish and we wanted to give some sort of nod to that in the ceremony.

Oh my…are you sure you’re not me? lol My fiance is Catholic..and I am not..we’re getting married on the same beach he proposed..and we’ve decided to incorporate a hand fasting!! I love it =) I wanna tweak the hand fasting to fit us..but I have not figured out how exactly to do it yet. I wanna do it as well as doing the rest of the regular ceremony like the ring vows and what not…I think I want to do cords though but not sure of how the actual ceremony is going to take place. I’m excited…any ideas is always helpful!
