Welcome back! In our last blog post we had a look at some gorgeous wedding hair accessories for the Bride who is having a summer wedding. We thought we would continue the sunny theme & have a look at some fabulous bridal accessory ideas.
When undertaking our research for this blog post we came across some wonderful quirky wedding superstitions so we thought we would share them with you.
Anyone who suffers from arachnophobia look away now …according to folklore, it is the best of luck omen for the bride to find a spider in her wedding dress on her actual wedding day. Not sure that all brides would agree with that one!
This is much nicer – It is considered good luck for the bride to cry on her wedding day, as this symbolises that she has shed all her tears and will not have to weep her marriage.
And, last but by no means least how about this belief ….. Once the vows have been exchanged the kiss was a means by which to swap a part of each other transferring a part of themselves into the other’s soul so that their spirit can dwell in their spouse for all time. … Romantic or not…. You decide!
Wedding Accessories to bring you good luck
Every Bride needs a little luck on her wedding day & these wedding horseshoes are just the ticket! There are some fabulous designs to choose from so you are guaranteed to find one to suit any wedding day theme from shabby chic to vintage, traditional to modern. The wooden horseshoe can also be personalised by adding the Bride & Grooms name & wedding date, it is also available in 12 different colours & the best bit? a bargain at under £20!
We could not feature all the different wedding accessory gifts on offer but before we leave this section we just wanted to mention Wedding Rolling Pins & the mystery of why it is tradition to give one as a wedding gift. All we could find during our research was that in the 40's and 50's, & the early 60's, you gave the bride a rolling pin. Perhaps this was because we had not entered the age of fast food & as such we baked everything from scratch therefore every 'wife' needed a good rolling pin?
OK let's move on ............
