Collaborative Post¦ With all the hassle involved in organising a wedding, you may feel as if you have to cut corners. Saying your vows is the perfect example. Most couples are happy to regurgitate words that are written by other people.
If you are happy to choose traditional vows, there’s nothing wrong with opting for a classic ceremony format. However, you may want to ensure that your words are packed with meaning and sentiment. After all, it’s essential to start your marriage on the right footing as it sets the tone for the future.
An oathing stone, stones traditionally used in Celtic ceremonies, are rising in popularity because of the concept. To show long-lasting love, you repeat your words while holding onto a rock as it sets your vows in stone.
Some people will assume that this isn’t an eligible tradition because they aren’t Celtic or of Celtic descent. For those who believe this, it’s worth noting that the oathing stone ceremony is more than an ancient tradition – it’s a promise. So, as long as you intend to keep yours, there’s nothing wrong with adopting this gesture, regardless of your heritage.
To find out more about an oathing stone and how it guarantees your vows are not empty words, you can check out the infographic underneath. It details how to perform the ceremony, the concept behind it and why it’s important, and how it involves all of your guests.
As well as the oathing stone tradition, you’ll also find info on separate Celtic traditions that may make your big day even more special.
