"Tying Up The Bride & Groom"
Around the world there are many
traditions involving the tying together of the married couple. The most
common is the Mexican Wedding Lasso. A large loop of rosary beads or
a lasso (rope) is placed in a figure eight around the necks of the Bridal
Couple after exchanging vows. A beautiful variant is to make the lasso
of entwined orange blossoms (symbolizing fertility and happiness). A
double rosary lasso is sometimes gifted by the grandparents and blessed
with holy water 3 times in honor of the Trinity. A special person/couple
places the lasso around the shoulders of the Bride and Groom, his shoulder
first. The lasso could also be tied around their wrists. The couple
wears the lasso throughout the service. The loop symbolizes their love
which binds them together forever, sharing equally in the responsibility
of marriage. At the end of the ceremony, the lasso is removed by either
the couple which placed the lasso on the couple, or by the priest. The
lasso is generally given to the Bride, a symbol of being the mistress
of the Groom's heart and home.
We recently tied those knots and have tips, tricks and trials to share:
Whether you are thinking
of making an orange blossom lasso, sets of swags to decorate the pews
or small table arrangements you can save a lot of money if you can do
some of the floral decorations yourself. Wholesale warehouses like Costco
and sam's Club often have a good variety of colors and many will let
you order your flowers in advance. You can go for the simple elegance
of using one kind of flower, or if you want to get more bang for your
buck, mix in coordinating baby's breath and carnations. These flowers
are extremely cheap but can really pump up the volume of an arrangement.
Dendrobium orchids which have many blooms per graceful stalk are available
in many colors and are an economical way to get more drama.
