ohhh, i do love a pretty veil - that's another popular tradition i adore!
one superstition that they didn't mention and i've encountered dozens of times with our mge brides is that it's bad luck for the bride to participate in the rehearsal by practicing her walk down the aisle.

this obviously varies from family to family, though, as it's also a popular tradition for a bride to carry a silly bouquet made of gift packaging from her bridal shower at the rehearsal!
have any unique traditions or superstitions of your own? i'd love to hear about them in the comments!
