In Hispanic weddings, a lasso/lazo represents the emotional element in a marriage, the binding together of two hands, two hearts, and two lives into one. The wedding lasso is like a double rosary designed in a figure eight, the mathematical symbol of infinity, to symbolize their eternal love. During the ceremony, Sponsors or Padrinos place the lasso around the Bride's and Groom's shoulders while the Priest or Minister blesses it.
Lassos can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish. Some have crucifixes with pearls or crystal beads while others are cords with floral accents. The Wedding Lazo will become a keepsake and family heirloom to treasure always and to pass down to future generations.
