The Marriage Braid...
                            Ceremony Procedure

Here's a brief summary of the ceremony procedure to ease some concerns...

    ~ The Marriage Braid procedure involves the bride, groom and representatives of the bride and groom (usually parents).

    ~ On the Marriage Braid, the center cord represents God and the outside cords represent the bride and groom.

    ~ The Marriage Braid (with the center cord attached) is in place on the pulpit/stage prior to the beginning of the ceremony.

    ~ Then, instead of the moms lighting candles, mom and dad (or representatives) take the bride's and groom's cords and attached them to the frame.

    ~ After the vows, the bride and groom braid the cords of the Marriage Braid.

   And That's It!
