My fiance and I are both Pagan and would like to have a traditional handfasting for our wedding ceremony. The ceremony itself is beautiful, essentially it asks for blessings of the various elements of nature, the bride and groom have their hands bound with a ribbon, then the ribbon is replaced with wedding rings.
The problem is that the majority of our guests are not Pagan, so how should I present the ceremony to them? I was planning on briefly explaining the ceremony in the programs. Should I tell people before hand that it's a Pagan ceremony? Or should I just leave out the P-word completely?
