The Western version of handfasting ceremony--use a country rope.

Handfasting: The term "tying the knot" originates with the practice of handfasting. During the ceremony, the couple's hands are tied together with one or several colored cords or ribbons, symbolizing the desire of the couple to be united. The cord is often kept by the couple in a box or ornate bag as a reminder of their vows.

"Our Story" on the seat of each chair. A really cute idea and something to look through while the guests wait for the ceremony to begin! Also answers all the questions everyone wants to know.

Great guide to what the colors represent for the handfasting cord. I think I want our wedding colors to be black, silver, and blue. Gotta run that by him though.
