While many wedding traditions have been scattered to the wind over time, we find that the custom of the groom not seeing his bride before she walks down the aisle is still popular with many couples. This precious moment of a bride and groom incorporating the tradition, while praying together before the ceremony, exemplifies that marriage is one of God's many blessings.

Something New!  A specially selected piece of bridal jewelry, such as a bracelet or necklace, can be purchased at a moderate price, adding beauty and sparkle to the bride's attire. And remember, something that is new to you can later be passed on to another bride as her something old or something borrowed!  Content courtesy of Juliette Weddings, LLC.

Something Old!  For the bride that is feeling pressured to wear her mother's wedding dress but it is just not your style, try incorporating elements of that heirloom gown into your own dress. Satin buttons, a piece of lace or an appliqué can be removed from the older dress and easily added to yours, creating a memorable touch to your wedding day that makes both mother and daughter happy.

Something Blue! This tradition has evolved over the years and is no longer limited to the blue satin garter worn by generations of brides. Today's bride has opened the door to new ideas and trends such as wearing sapphire jewelry on her wedding day, incorporating gorgeous blue flowers into her bridal bouquet, and my favorite...making a fashion statement with blue bridal shoes.

Something Borrowed! The list of ideas on this topic are endless. As the bride, try to borrow something that has a special meaning to you and perhaps to the person who is lending the item. Juliette Weddings loves this idea of Grandma's lace hankie  Content courtesy of Juliette Weddings, LLC.

The African-American tradition of Jumping the Broom dates back to before the Civil War, when slaves were not permitted to marry. Couples would jump over a broom in front of witnesses as their way of solidifying their relationship as a wedded couple. This custom is occasionally still practiced in today’s  African-American wedding ceremonies as a way of honoring tradition.  Content courtesy of Juliette Weddings, LLC.

The veil is a custom that dates back to Roman times, symbolizing the bride's modesty. In certain cultures, the veil was worn to hide the bride's face from the groom until after the ceremony.  While the symbolism of the veil has decreased over the years, it is still customarily worn, although today’s bride exudes confidence as she marches down the aisle, rarely choosing to cover her face, unlike this bride who wears her veil in the traditional fashion.

The Lucky Sixpence was originally given to the bride by her father and placed in her left shoe, representing financial security in her marriage. If there is a Lucky Sixpence in your own family, it has most likely been passed down from generation to generation; however modern brides will often use a copper penny for lack of the traditional sixpence.  A little good fortune is always welcome!   Content courtesy of Juliette Weddings, LLC.
