All handfasting cords are sent out in high quality, rigid cardboard boxes with an
ivory finish, but sometimes a little extra is required. If you intend to display
your tied handfasting cords at a Reception for instance, you may want a more elaborate
box to do so. Some couples choose to display their cords when they get home, hanging
them on the wall above the bed is a popular choice, whilst others prefer to keep
them tucked away in a special keepsake box, often with their photos, and take them
out to reminisce from time to time.
Either way, if you want a box for your cords that’s a little bit special, we can
help. All the boxes start out either a plain ivory or plain white finish, and everything
else is added. So if you want a bronze shimmer on your lid, or you like the ideas
of feathers and diamante, or a plush, padded box interior lined in bright pink satin,
just ask! Unless you want something personalised to the extent you want names and
dates added to the box, there's no commitment to buy after you ask for a custom creation.
The Keepsake box will be created and an email will be sent to let you know its available,
and the box will be added to the Custom Boxes page so you're free to make a decision
to buy, or not, at that point.
To complement your handfasting cords, accessories can be created as a 'mini' version
for gifts to friends and family on the day - perhaps bracelets for young bridesmaids,
or handbag charms for the Matron of Honour and mother of the bride.
And if you’d like a more personal accessory to your handfasting cord, why not have
a matching garter? With no elastic and all made to measure, you can be sure it’ll
be totally comfortable and stay put all day!
Any accessories created will be as unique and bespoke as your cords, created to your
specifications. They can match your colours, or perhaps be in a complementary, paler
shade. If your cords are complex, they could be simpler but perhaps with similar
beads and pendants. As with the cords, the only limit is imagination!
