handfasting Idea

Hello... i stumbled across this group at 3 in the morning wandering google for pagan wedding ideas. I figured i would share what me and my boyfriend are doing. We are planning on getting married on june 6 2009 (our anniversary)and we are going to do an "engagement" ceremony a year and a day before. we are doing it this way so that both our families can be involved because my family is pagan or spiritual his family is hardfast catholic. So we decided to call what i know as a commitment type ceremony an engagement ceremony. We plan on that being a small ceremony with just close family and friends in our yard. We are going to call corners and ask each element to help us during the planning of the wedding. Also that is when i will officially get my engagement ring. Then at the wedding we are going to have a large ceremony with all our friends and family in which we will combine some "regular" wedding activities(wedding party, walking down the isle, ring exchange) and some pagan ceremonies (calling the corners, binding our hands, unity candles.) This is going to be fairy themed probably in Lavender(I have always said this was going to be my wedding color) and forest green (his favorite color)Hopefully we can get a nice outdoor place for the wedding and then we plan on having a party after the ceremony with food and dancing.

First of all - welcome! Glad to see the community getting some posts.

I like your idea about an engagement ritual. It sounds really beautiful.

The fairy theme should be lovely, and the colors you're choosing fit great, I think. What type of foods do you think you'll choose to fit with the theme?
