Today's engagment, and marriage customs are pagan witchraft rituals!
The wedding bands that so many of you wear, "jumping the broom stick", the "wedding cakes", even the phrase "tying the knot"? These are all part of "Wiccan Witchcraft".
As with traditional marriages, couples often exchange rings during handfastings, symbolizing the couple's desire to be faithful to each other and to share the rest of their lives together (the unbroken circle0. Many pagan couples choose rings with Celtic designs to resonate with the origins of handfastings, while others choose traditional wedding rings.
Couples opt to jump over a broom, balefire, sword or cord. The couples are symbolically tied together. Couples drink out of the same cup to indicate the joining of their lives and destinies. Rings are exchanged. Most of the traditional symbols and customs we associate with traditional weddings (cake, wine and toasts, having rice or grain tossed over the bride and groom, ivy in the bridal bouquet, the 'unity candle', the veil, the garter, etc) were pagan rites originally. Many of these rites, such as rice-throwing, started out as fertility charms.
