Many of these customs come from older marriage ceremonies. For instance, I attended the wedding of a Hindu couple, and the officiant was a Pundit who spoke in Sanskrit and translated into English. the wedding couple's hands were also tied together with rope, and then the couple circled the wedding bower. The Pundit commented on the ancient custom of "tying the knot."
