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)
The Wedding Braid / Marriage Braid / Wedding Knot / Cord of Three Strands Awesome alternative to the unity candle or blending of sand. The wedding braid is a beautiful representation of the marriage (bride, groom and God)
Tree planting instead of a unity candle. Neat idea!
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
I like the three bands idea. Ecc. 4:12 states "a cord of 3 strands is not quickly broken" God, Husband and wife-beautiful Idea!
