Hi there! I just wanted to share my offbeat plan. I always imagined a small intimate handfasting for our ceremony but a huge party to celebrate; and that is exactly what we're planning.
The ceremony will be held at a primitive campsite TBD the day before. Our celebration will be held the following day at a beautiful picnic area. There is a little confusion about the difference between the ceremony and the celebration and who is invited to what but I did my best to make it clear on my invites as well as my website. I will be sending my invites out this week. Wish me luck.
At the celebration we will be including some of the tradional handfasting components and I also expect a bit of confusion from some of my guests as they may be more use to common day tradition. I look forward to lacing up my chucks to physically jump the broom with my honey in my party dress in front of all my loved ones :
