      I was interested in the lasso ceremony too. I'll be curious to hear what past brides have done or future ones are planning on doing!

          I'm incorporating many Mayan and a few Mexican traditions. I have never heard of the lasso ceremony - Can you explain?

            I'll have a "lasso ceremony" as it's part of the Mexican catholic ceremony. FI is Mexican. Basically after exchanging rings and receiving arrhaes (some tiny gold chips that symbolize money / property - that your hubby will take care of you financially while you need to manage the household finance well) from the groom, the bestman of lasso will put a long chain (with beads and a cross) over both of you, symbolizing unity of the 2 souls.

                I'm thinking that I want to incorporate the lasso ceremony into our wedding as well. Do any other brides have any ideas on different traditions that they are including?

                  I'm Filipino, and it's custom at weddings to do the veil, cord/lasso, and coin ceremonies during the service, similar to the Spanish/Mexican cultures.  When searching on ceremony scripts, I loved the idea of the hand blessing, so we're doing that too.  I figured it would be too windy to do a unity candle and did not want to do the sand ceremony because it might get messed up in transport on the way back.  I gave a preliminary copy of our script to the minister that will be presiding over our service, and he said it should not add too much extra time.

                    The lasso is actually a large double rosary and the arras are gold coins.
