In Eastern Orthodox weddings, a beautiful bridal cloth (sometimes called a hand tie) joins the right hands of the bride and groom. This represents their joining together to become one mind and one flesh. Traditionally, the names of the couple and the wedding date are embroidered on the bridal cloth. The couple then keeps this as an heirloom and remembrance of their wedding day.
Bridal cloth features:
- Customizable heirloom piece
- Hand-made and embroidered
- High quality white sateen-cotton blend fabric
- Authentic Venetian lace trim
- Hand wash only
Our bridal cloths feature an embroidered Orthodox cross in the Antiochian style. Additionally, we offer three thread color options: champagne gold, metallic gold, and metallic silver. We also offer personalization options for the names of the bride and groom, as well as the wedding date. If you’d like to add addition embroidery to your cloth aside from names and wedding dates (see the product image above), please contact us and describe what you’d like! We are more than happy to work with you to create a unique bridal cloth just for you!
