It is time to get down to the nitty-gritty now that your wedding date has been finalized. Sure, you are a modern girl when it comes to everyday life but being a tad traditional is certainly not going to hurt especially when you are thinking about one of the most important days of your life. It is best to go by the old English rhyme, “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. After all, you are not going to be blushing bride again (touchwood) and would love to get wedded with all the ancient traditions intact. But do you really have an idea of how to go about it? Check out some of the best wedding traditions we feel should be around forever and see if you can be creative about them.
1. Something Old
Take a long hard look at the family heirlooms and decide on the exceptional piece that you would like to wear for your wedding. It could be as simple as a passed down bridal gown, definitely, but we feel that you are entitled to your very own wedding dress. So forget, it and concentrate on other artifacts instead. What about your granny’s beautiful emerald brooch or your aunt’s beautiful bejeweled hair pin? There are many ways to incorporate them either in the bouquet or centerpiece. A simple nametag will do too as long as it is steeped in history. Your man could match you by sharing the tradition wholeheartedly and turn up with his Grand-Grand-Dad’s cufflinks on his sleeve.
