Make up bells
Wedding bells are common in most Christian weddings. They drive away evil spirits and remind the married couple of their vows. Irish culture calls them make up bells because they are rang at home in case they argue.
The bells remind them of their wedding vow and the arguments stop. Of course the bells do not replace the need to solve your differences but it helps couples do so in a calm manner. Though not commonly used in modern weddings, if you would choose them, the better. Have them rung as your take your vows and then keep them as a reminder.
Tying the knot
Handfasting ceremony represents the coming together of the couple. It starts at the engagement stage. Their wrists tied together with a ribbon symbolizing infinity. This is where the term tying the knot came from. In Irish custom, when a couple tied the knot, they agreed to stay together for a year and a day.
At the end of their period they were either to enter into a permanent marriage or go separate ways. Getting a ribbon to tie your hands as a married couple can act as a reminder of your commitment to one another. Be sure to keep your ribbon as a reminder.
