Can someone give me as much information on wiccan weddings ceremonys as possible?

I need some info on wiccan wedding ceremony’s =D
Im a witch, and so is my boyfriend, we want more info on the wedding it’s self, we are very very interested.


  1. Witches and Wiccans aren’t necessarily the same thing, although if you’re a witch (depending on your other spiritual beliefs) I suppose you might find a Wiccan handfasting ceremony pleasant and meaningful.
    The best advice I can give you is to find a book called “Handfasting and Wedding Rituals: Welcoming Hera’s Blessing”:
    It is the reference book I refer to most often when designing Wiccan wedding services.
    You can also find wedding clergy in your area through Witchvox: http://www.witchvox.com/xvn.html
    Best of luck to you both, and congratulations. 🙂

  2. Hah… no , not as much as possible. That covers a lot of ground.
    Are you referring specifically to Wiccan? Are one of you Wiccan? If either of you are in a coven you might check with elders of your trad.
    Basically you have a lot of freedom to design it. Wiccan weddings are generally referred to as a handfasting.
    My husband and I were handfasted (I’m a Wiccan Witch, he’s a generic Pagan); we were married by my High Priest and Priestess in full ritual style (circle, quarters, invocations, etc.). We had programs printed out for non-Pagan family & friends to follow along so they would understand what is going on (though most guests were Pagan). Our hands were bound and we lept a broom. We exchanged rings and vows. We had a drum band and we danced with our guests. We bought a special cup to drink out of during the ceremony. Then we had a huge barbecue and partied.
    A good place to start would be reading up. A couple of books you might find useful:
    A Witch’s Bible by Janet and Stewart Farrar
    Witchcraft Today Series, Book Two: Rites of Passage (edited) by Chas S. Clifton
    Another good place to begin would be looking for Wiccan/Pagan clergy in your town; try http://www.witchvox.com or your local unitarian universalist church with a CUUPs division. Once you find someone who can perform the ceremony they will help you design it and probably be able to direct you to resources.
