    Handfasting - Irish Wedding Tradition Each partner holds the hands of the other, right hand to right hand, left hand to left, their wrists crossed. The ribbon is wound around the wrists over the top of one and under and around the other, creating the infinity symbol. The practice gave way to the expression tying the knot...

    Handfasting is an ancient Ireland Celtic wedding tradition. I also like the bells idea!

    Hand fasting a nautical rope and ribbon would be darling. A handfasting ceremony is an ancient marriage ritual made popular in Ireland and Scottland during the Early Christian period. This symbolic lashing together of the couple's hands is the origin of the familiar expression, "tying the knot". Interesting and inexpensive alternative to a unity candle.

I like this over the unity candle and sand that everyone does. Great way to honor God and my heritage!
