Lasso Ceremony

20121027-201514.jpg

(Bride) and (Groom) you have chosen to incorporate the old Spanish tradition of the lasso ritual into your wedding ceremony today. Lassoing is a symbolic declaration of intention that you are voluntarily binding yourselves together before your family, friends and God.

A prayer for the couple is then said as they stand or kneel. (Lasso placed on them)

O God, bless the marriage of (Bride) and (Groom) who come to you seeking your blessing. Give them wisdom and devotion in the ordering of their common life, that each may be to the other a strength in need, a counselor in perplexity, a comfort in sorrow, and a companion in joy.

Grant that their wills may be so knit together in your will, and their spirits in your spirit, that they may grow in love and peace with you and one another all the days of their life. Amen.

(Lasso removed)

  1. Really interesting. We covered a wedding in Scotland and they had their hands bound together with ribbon in the Scotish tradition. Hence the phrase of ‘tying the not’. But it is the message that counts behind these symbolic representations. For a couple to give this thought into their ceremony speaks volumes of their intentions together.

    • I agree.

      Too often, a couple will spend a great deal of time planning the party reception and give little or no thought to the ceremony.

      Thanks for your comment!

  2. I was honored to have the El Lasso used in a beach wedding on 6/27/12! The Lasso used was handed down from the grooms family, and was made of cords and decorated with white flowers! Very Awesome!!

    • That sounds wonderful! I recently did a Lasso Ceremony for the first time. It is a nice addition which includes family and tradition.

      Thanks for your insight.
