What is the significance of a ribbon attaching our wedding crowns?
The ribbon joining the wedding crowns symbolizes the joining of the Bride and Groom together as one. In some Orthodox Christian cultures, such as the Romanian Orthodox Church, the tradition is not to tie the crowns together, but to tie the Bride and Groom's wrists together for their walk about the table. In my experience, nearly all Brides and Grooms have a ribbon attaching the crowns, rather than their wrists. As such, all of the crowns that I sell will normally include a ribbon. If your Church does not use ribbon to attach the crowns, please let me know and I will leave it off. If you are unsure of your Church's preference, talk to your priest.
Can we purchase additional ribbon?
Yes! You can order by the yard or by the spool. Most ribbon is $0.50/yd. Spools of ribbon are available starting at just $5.
Some crowns have soldered back joints, others have rivets. be aware that if you order a crown without ribbon you some sort of back joint will be visible....I make the joints as neat and clean and inconspicuous as possible
