A New Take On An Old Tradition
'Something new' unique ideas
October 17, 2011
The tradition of "something new", in the past, conveyed success and good fortune for the bride and her husband and the hope for a forever after in her new married life. The wedding dress is one of the most common items chosen to represent this but anything that you newly acquire or purchase for the wedding will do the trick, from wedding flowers to rings.
Let's look at some ways that you can stand out with something new on your wedding day:
Whatever your taste may be from the simple to avant garde, there is a headpiece to right your style. If you are looking for one of a kind pieces, beautifully crafted and embellished with crystals, rhinestones, feathers, flowers or pearls, shop Etsy for unique handcrafted bridal headpieces.
A new piece of jewelry is, of course always welcome but consider something a little more eloquent. Wear a locket that has a picture of you and your husband to be inside. This way your something new can be worn right next your heart.
The sense of smell can create some powerful memories, evoking emotion and romance, so why not incorporate this into your day? Creating a custom scent will always remind you of your special day. For a summer wedding choose floral notes of gardenia, lavender or jasmine. An autumn wedding can set the mood with cinnamon or vanilla.
Some new lingerie hidden underneath your angelic dress is sure to put some spruce in your step as you confidently march down the aisle feeling sexy and secretive.
