We don’t have any traditions.  Yours is cute, though!

The whole bow tradition has been used at every bridal shower I’ve ever gone to.

I didn’t know the part about the children is equal to how many bows you break.

Maybe it’s a northern thing?

I’m from NY. Maybe it’s only in the North east or something.

Every show I’ve been to has had the bow breaking & bow bouquet tradition.. and I’ve always heard however many you break is how many children you’re supposed to have.. I’ve become an excellent bow bouquet maker! I have no idea who’s going to make mine, since I’m always the one making them! Someone better learn!

@LovebirdsSC:  I don’t really have any suggestions.. some advice though, make sure you have scissors & tape handy.. I just make a hole in a paper plate (classy, i know!) and as I get a bow I thread them through the plate.. or if there’s ones with sticky backs I stick them to the plate.. The 3 I’ve done, I just make them as the bride opens gifts at the shower.. so it’s a mishmosh of bows.. if I took them home, I’d be able to organize it a little better. I’m not that great at it.. I just always get volunteered to do them.. I only have pictures my most recent one.

Oddly enough, there isn’t any pictures of the bride holding it lol just me & other Bridesmaid or Best Man
