Get your guests involved by having them "tie your knot"

Everyone gave advice and tied a string around our wrists.

Taymar and Max had an interesting way to get their guests involved in the ceremony. Taymar's "ribbon ladies" passed out pieces of string to all of the guests, who then lined up and each tied their ribbon around the couple's wrists, offering advice and love at the same time. It was like a communal handfasting! This is an awesome idea to get your guests involved, as long as your guest list is a manageable size. [Updated to add: the concept is an adaptation of an Hmong tradition.]

Check out the rest of Taymar & Max's summer camp weekend wedding.
