Story of the Wedding Vase
The wedding vase is widely used by many Native American Indian tribes, each with varying rituals. As part of the ancient marriage tradition, the tribe's medicine man, or Shaman, would prepare a special potion for the brave and maiden - a mixture of herbs and water signifying the promise of deep love and eternal happiness. To finalize the wedding vows, the brave and maiden would then drink from the wedding vase, each using one of the two spouts to symbolize their unity. The handle between the spouts symbolizes unity between the two. (Note how the two spouts go into one container) To this day, the wedding vase remains a symbol of happiness in marriage and the wedding vase, usually given by the brave's parents as a gift to the couple, is kept by the couple as a cherished reminder of their unity.
