seeing groom before the wedding?
wearing a veil?
wearing the garter?

something old, something new?
i wont see him before the wedding.
am wearing a veil
am wearing pearls
am wearing garter
not throwing it
doing the something old something new
just wondering what everyone else is doing?
I also want him to be blown away when he lays his eyes on me in all my finery as opposed to seeing me in various stages of getting ready.
I'm wearing a veil but not over my face.
I won't be throwing my bouquet or wearing/throwing a garter - that is the most tackiest thing I've EVER seen.
Pearls are a no as my dress is quite detailed at neck line so will be wearing something small & understated.
Something old/new/blue/borrowed also not bothering with.
I think the only thing we are doing is not spending the night before together & this is more to do with the fact that I know h2b would be winding me up about how long it is taking me to get ready
seeing groom before the wedding? YES - maybe the night before but not staying together all night.
wearing a veil? YES
wearing pearls? YES
wearing the garter? NO
throwing the garter and bouquet? NO
something old, something new? Not sure yet - maybe
I plan on not seeing him before wedding, wearing a veil, something old, new. Not wearing pearls as they wont match my dress and I dont think im gonna do the whole garter thingy.
My h2b doesn't want to see me after midnight before the wedding day and will probably do the something old, new, borrowed, blue tradition and will throw the bouquet but that will be it, not into the garter thing at all.
not seeing groom - am staying my mams the night before,
not wearing a veil
wearing a garter but not throwing it
doing something new borrowed old blue etc, though have no idea still what my old is.
old - a necklace i got a few years ago from a friend
new - dress
borrowed - hair jewellery
blue - don't know yet
Not really doing anything else traditional - unless you count wearing virginal white!!
I am quite supersticiou at the best of times so for our wedding day am definitly trying to stick with tradition
seeing groom before the wedding? No, definitly not wont be seeing him after midnight the night before
wearing a veil? Yep I am indeedy
wearing pearls? Nope, not wearing pearls, they are meant to be bad luck so wont be doing it just in case.
wearing the garter? Yep
throwing the garter and bouquet? Never heard of throwing the garter, but will throw the bouquet think its just abit of fun for the girls
something old, something new? Not sure what my old will be, something new is my dress of course, dont know what my something borrowed will be and my something blue will be a holy medal belonging to my mam pinned to the inside of my dress and of course i will have the sixpence in my shoe
and also i wont be wearing a watch on the day of my wedding as its meant to be considered bad luck because your not meant to watch the clock that day or its said you will be doing it for the rest of your married life.
after the groom takes off your garter he will throw it to the grooms men and you throw the bouquet to all the single ladies. the two 'catchers' will be the first up to dance after your h2b and yourself. thats the tradition

Is it not that whoever catches the bouquet sits down and then whoever catches the garter has to take it off that girl?? Im not sure now....
