Wedding Rituals can be a meaningful way to bring family members to connect with the couple, or to include children in the couples’ lives to create a new family, or to recognise the value of the community to the couple. I have listed a few suggestions to include in your ceremony to make it even more memorable. There are several imaginative and memorable ways to use a wedding ritual in your ceremony.
- The Unity Sand Ceremony represents the union of two lives. The bride and groom are represented by two or more sand colours, which represent everything they have been and will be in the future.
Tying the Knot:
- Tying the knot after you and your spouse have exchanged your beautifully written vows and symbolic wedding rings is a wedding ritual done by some couples during their weddings. Usually, couples use a Fisherman’s rope or a ribbon to do this. Tying ropes together as a couple signifies your everlasting connection with each other
Jumping a Broom:
- It may seem odd for some, but newlyweds, perform the ritual to greet their new married life happily. The broom is placed flat on the floor for you and your partner to jump over once the ceremony has ended. This wedding ritual has been carried out since the 1800s and was highly influenced by African weddings.
