Tying the Knot: A Gender-Neutral GT Handfasting or Weddings for Pagans and Goddess Worshippers (Paperback)
Chris and Jesse ""tied the knot"" last weekend. That still common figure of speech is an ancient idiom from Pagan handfastings, where the couple’s hands are literally tied together to symbolize their being joined in love. Tying the Knot describes the Pagan magical rite and explains the steps needed to plan a handfasting or a wedding that is simple or elaborate, for just a few friends and family or a large group, whether you are a different-sex or same-sex couple. This book offers advice on envisioning and designing a ceremony, interviewing a priest or priestess, and talking with non-pagan family and friends. The book includes step-by step checklists. Jade River’s Tying the Knot is gay-friendly and gender-neutral. It includes examples of actual Pagan ceremonies and gives step-by-step instructions as well as useful advice for creating a Pagan wedding. Jade offers money saving options and helpful tips with cheerful good humor.
