I would think it could be sand, handfasting, vows, rings, but seriously – your ceremony order is totally up to you and what you want!

Hey there kelz were doing a handfasting ceremoney part of my fiancee Irish Tradition and we wanted to coperate it plus there are also words that are said over the handfasting are you planning on doing that? And are you planning on braiding your ribbions together and blessing them? I am having a good friend of ours whom is Native American do a blessing over the ribbons before and after there braided..And also incase them in lavender smoke really cool thing…

 

But like bebefly said it is your cermoney so whenever you want to do it but we want to incoperate our like wedding cermoney and then the handfasting and then the reading of a specail message to my grandmother and daughter and mother..and then the ring exchange and then the sand something along them lines since my wedding is small my wedding vows and everything done in the ceremony is very personal to us….But yeah the handfasting is very awesome thing.

Awesome ,I was wondering the same thing also.  We are including my FI’s son in the hand fasting, so figured it should be post ring exchange…

Yeah, last is best because you can walk out with your hands tied together if you tie the bride’s left hand to the groom’s right hand.  We did a hand fasting too.  🙂

@MightySapphire: How did you sign your certificate if you were tied together?  I don;t think we can walk out “tied” as we will end up dragging our son lol, or one of us will have to walk backwards…

Well we only had one hand tied, the one we would be holding down the aisle anyway.  If you wanted to tie your son in too, then you could tie him in the middle, tying your hand to his and his other to your FI’s.

So basically it would look like this:

You ::knot:: your son ::knot::  Fiance
