If you’re planning your wedding, or helping someone special plan her own, here are some modern variations on the traditional theme:
Something old represents the bride’s past. Personalize this tradition by incorporating a small memento from you and your fiancé’s past together. Did you keep something from one of your favorite dates? Maybe you still have the ticket stub from the first concert you attended together, or the wine cork from your first date.
Brides are tucking these small items into their bouquets to bring them good luck. At a special moment during the evening, you can reveal the keepsake to your husband and remember how far you’ve come as a couple.
Scent creates powerful memories, and today’s brides are taking notice. Find a new fragrance that perfectly fits your special moment. For years to come, the fragrance will remind you and your husband of your wedding day.
A wedding calls for a memorable scent such as twirl by kate spade new york, perfect for this joyous and festive occasion. A fresh floral bouquet mingles with pink watermelon and red currant, while luminous musks and a touch of French macaroon add that wink of surprise that will keep your husband-to-be enamored and your guests intrigued.
According to tradition, something should be borrowed from a person who has a happy marriage. But your something borrowed needn’t be an object. Think outside the box. Perhaps you want to honor your grandparents and borrow some of the vows they recited those many years ago. Or maybe your best friend has an insight about marriage – a nugget you can print on the dessert napkins for all guests to enjoy. Feeling musical? Ask your parents what song was played during their first wedding dance and surprise them by borrowing it for your own.
Looking for something unique for your guests to take home as a thank-you token? Wrap up blue candies (blue lollipops are a fun choice) in gift bags accompanied by a note thanking them for being part of your special day.
The modern bride is always finding unique ways to incorporate tradition into her wedding. Those old, new, borrowed and blue somethings – if they’re personal and meaningful – will make your wedding even more memorable.
