My great-grandma made a headpiece for my aunt’s wedding in 1975. My mom and her other three sisters then wore it for their weddings. My two younger sisters and I then wore it for our first communions. Now, I will be wearing it on my wedding day. This got me thinking, what are some heirlooms, traditions, etc are other brides incorporating into their special days?

My mom’s best friend, who is honestly like family to me because our families have all been intertwined in each other’s lives forever, gave me a handkerchief at my baptism that was to be used also at my wedding day. I wrapped the stems of my bouquet in it. It was a nice touch and meant so much to her!

I have a small vase that has been on wedding cakes in my mums family for over130 years. It’s not worth much but it means a lot. We are going to put white roses in it and it will be our cake topper.

My moms wedding gift to me was the ring that my grandmother gave her on her wedding day. It’s aquamarine (which is both of our birth stones) with side diamonds and absolutely gorgeous! It was originally yellow gold which isn’t my style so she had it dipped in white gold and resized to fit my sausage fingers. The ring served as both my something old and something blue. I’ve worn it every day since…

I’m wrapping my grandfather’s rosary around my bouquet. He died when I was young, so it’s a way to honor him during the day

My engagement ring is my great grandmas (on my moms side), and I will be wearing my grandmas pearls also (on my dads side). I love that I can represent both of them!
