Check out my rehearsal dinner bouquet, one of my bridesmaids made it out of the ribbons on my gifts from the bridal shower. I dunno if this is a southern thing or not but for every ribbon I broke, that represents the number of children we’re having. I ended up breaking 2 but one of them broke 3 times lol

So does that mean you’re having triplets for one of the pregnancies??? Food for thought… hehe!

Definitely not just a southern thing…I did the same thing for my sister’s wedding and my friend had one for hers…although I’ve never heard of the blue ribbon thing

Definitely not Southern! My girls did it for my rehearsal, too. I purposely broke some ribbons!

@JenniMichele: That’s exactly what my Future Mother-In-Law and Mom said, they were pretty excited about that thought lol, they both desperately want girl grand kids, we want boys though haha.
@Chillmer: Yeah I broke the first one purposefully, but the 2nd one that I broke in 3 different places was it for me, I was very careful with the rest!! haha

this is not something we do in UK, we do have a rehearsal, but cannot see the need for a bouquet……the rehearsal is only for knowing who goes where isnt it?
and we dont have wedding showers either, but we have begun having baby showers, and also a few years ago we didnt have favors either……
i mean arnt the guests meant to bring the gifts not the other way around.
there are many US customs that are hitting UK, all designed for spending more and more money….like halloween too! as long as the disgusting feeding each other cake and ramming it in each others face’s doest get popular……

@anne B: the bouquet is just fun. Not necessary at all. And I don’t understand wedding favors either. This isn’t a birthday party for kids who don’t understand why they don’t get presents too.

@anne B: I certainly know the shower thing! I live in Canada and my FH is from England (moved here when he was young with his family) and they are clueless when it comes to the shower AND many of our guests are coming over from the UK (which is great they can make the journey) but I know there are no shower gifts coming from them (which is totally fine!)….
I wish we could put the “cake ramming” tradition on a boat and let it set sail never to be seen/heard of again!!!!!

yeah i can see the rehearsal bouquet is just for fun, and why not, its quite nice actually.
but why have the shower? wedding or babyshower?
i mean when people come to your wedding they bring a gift dont they? and when we have babies then on your first visit to the baby, thats when you bring the gift. dont get it really/
