I found this site and thought it was interesting.
Do you have any other reasoning behind wedding traditions you hear’d from the grapevine? Do you have any other family traditions that your family does at weddings? Do you know of any other sites?

Oh thanks for posting! Very interesting! I always wondered why they pinned handkerchiefs to the bride and groom in Orthodox weddings—never knew it was to catch the tears of the bride!
One other tradition was to put a sixpence or penny in the bride’s shoe. My mom and sister did this, but I will be wearing sandals and wont be able to (unless i tape it in there). I’ll have to ask her why they did this tradition.

I love wedding and family traditions!
@honeybeelove: You shoul.d definitely ask but either way, I think thats really neat you have a tradition like that! it may be for luck as a penny for some reason usually symbolizes luck or maybe for wealth but either way its a beautiful tradition!
I wish I had a family tradition but I am not sure if there is one or not in mine. I go by all of the good luck traditions.
