your future together. And we will have a lot of fun!
|*What is a Handfasting?
Handfasting is the old word for weddings. The term is originally a loan from the Norse word hand-festa meaning, "to strike a bargain by joining
hands". Before the church took over Europe, and required weddings to be done by priests, couples who wanted to marry would have their hands
wrapped together, while speaking their vows. The symbolism of the handshake still translates into "you have my word".
|Handfasting rule #1: Don't put your vows in your pocket!
