Im thinking of actually “tying the knot” at my wedding. Does that take place of the unity candle part or do you do both? I’m not exactly sure! Have any of you”tied the knot” or seen anyone do it? Yay or na?

Are you thinking of a handfasting ceremony, or something along those lines?

We’re actually thinking about doing this because I am not wanting to do a unity candle. We’re going to tie a fisherman’s knot and have the officiant read the meaning behind it (rope will break before it comes undone and only becomes stronger with pressure). We are then going to put it in a shadow box and hang it in our house! I really like the idea!

Love the idea of placing in the shadow box. Sorry no help for your question though.

@misschickpea: We are doing this too! No unity candle for us!

It’s part of our ceremony in The Book of Common which is what we have to go by as we are Anglo- Catholic and Unity Candles or anything not in the BCP are not allowed. The tying the knot ceremony is much more meaningful. Good choice
