I want to use the cords in my handfasting. Where do I get them and what do the different colours mean? Also how many cords do you use?Answer Question
We just bought lengths of silk cord at JoAnn Fabrics. I don't know if this link will work but here's a pic of ours in our handfasting. There is a lot of different ways to do the cords. Some do ribbons, some do only one, some do six.
Here's a good article Make your own handfasting cord.
And here's a quick color chart I just googled.
Hope that helps :)

The cords can be anything you want... I like the idea of ivy or some other vine type of plant. But you can really do almost anything. If you are not using a vine of some kind just make sure it's natural fibers. And as for colors I would stick to either the colors of your wedding, white or red. You could also look at what colors represent in association with their magical uses...
