Perfect! 3 strand wedding cord (a great alternative to the candle and sand ceremony) In a Cord of Three Strands Ceremony, husband and wife weave or braid three separate cords into one. Two of the three strands represent their lives and the gold strand represents God. The Bible verse behind this idea is Ecclesiastes 4:12, states, "A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
The God's Knot - Cord of Three Strands (alternative to a unity candle in a wedding ceremony)
Instead of lighting the traditional unity candle during the ceremony, the couple opted to do a God's Knot, tied with the light mint green and ivory color themes of the day. The "knot" consisted of three strands, one to represent the groom, one for bride, and one for God - the meaning behind was that the couple ties their life in together and with God... I LOVE THIS
The "Blending of the Sands" ceremony can be a beautiful and meaningful alternative to the " Unity Candle" ceremony. Like a Unity candle the pouring of two different colored sands together is used to symbolize the joining of the bride and groom or the joining of their families.
