This is the year of the handfasting! Pt. 2!
Here are some tips for your binding!
1- definitely look up some knots and see which you would like for yours!
2- would you like the officiant to bind, friends and family, etc.
3- are there colours or fabrics that are meaningful to you that you would like to have the importance explained within the bind introduction
4- would you like to invite someone special to lay the cords
5- check the size of the cords based on the knot (2.5 ft is usually safe)
6- will you use one cord or many?
7- is there a special blessing you would like acknowledged into the ceremony
8- ribbons do not create a nicely shaped knot (if you are looking for an infinity knot)
9- do you have children that you would like to incorporate into the ceremony but don’t know how? How about a family handfasting to connect everyone together!
So take your time, think about what a handfasting means to you, and make it your own! There are no rules in 2019!
