Southern Weddings Traditions

Don’t ya just love looking at wedding magazines??
As a bridal consultant I’m obsessed with them and always learn so much.
One of my favorite bridal magazines is Southern Weddings.
(Click here to follow their blog)
Lara Casey, the editor, always brings to light old and new wedding customs.
Recently, the magazine featured a page of southern traditions such as the grooms cake…

Steel Magnolias anyone?

Carrying a handkerchief…

Finally, the tradition of brides carrying a bouquet with a Bible attached…


For instance, the significance of carrying a nosegay with a Bible derives from Northern Ireland. This tradition brings to mind Grace Kelly–who also carried a Bible with her lily of the valley bouquet.


You should check out Southern Weddings and think about what types of traditions you want to incorporate in your wedding!
