Gifts and Horseshoes

Today we are going to talk about horseshoes and gifts.

Years ago, you didn’t see a bride walk down an aisle without 10 or so ornamental horseshoes hanging from her wrist.

As the bride walked down the aisle, guests would put horseshoes attached to ribbon onto her wrist.

By the time they got to the end of the aisle they were laden with them.

Aunties and Grandmas usually gave it to the bride, as a loving gift for good luck.

The brides that I work with are usually not too keen on having horseshoes hanging off their wrists.

They have carefully planned every detail right down to the design of their bracelet, so horseshoes aren’t usually a part of the look.

If you have them placed on your wrist as you walk down the aisle and you don’t wish to have these on you during the ceremony, ask your maid of honour to take them from you and she can hold them for you or maybe she can give them to the flower girl.

This way you won’t offend anyone, and they are still a part of the service.

You can ask your maid of honour to put them back on your wrist when you get outside just for the congratulations time with your guests and then put them away.
