How many cords do we need?
The ceremony can be done with as few or as many cords as you like, though they are most commonly done with 2 cords, with the idea that one cord represents you and the other represents your partner, and you are tying your lives together.
However, handfasting ceremonies can use 3 or even up to 6 cords - since multiple cords can be wrapped by close friends or family members, with each cord representing their love and support for you, it is a great way to involve them in your big day and works especially well for blended families.
Our cords come with an organza bag to keep them safe until they are ready to be used. Each of our cords are approximately 1.5cm in width and 1.5m in length which is a suitable size for the various handfasting methods. However, if you need a longer or shorter length, please email us.
Each cord is made to order. Processing time is 3-7 working days from purchase. Please also allow sufficient time for shipping.
Unreliable service. Took ages to arrive, ordered-a standard non personalised cord. I am returning.

I purchased two handfasting cords for our upcoming wedding and am so thrilled with the quality of these items. They arrived quickly, were exactly as described, are colourful and beautiful and, as an added bonus, were packed with tissue and flower petals so smell amazing! I would definitely order from here again.
