Hidden Heirlooms

(click to enlarge)

Martha Stewart has a great idea for incorporating your "something blue" into your wedding outfit. I had a similar idea for my own wedding. In my family there has been a gold "wedding locket" that has been used by all the brides in my family for several generations. Instead of wearing the locket around my neck I sewed it onto the petticoat under my dress and included a picture of my husband and I inside. Although I was the only one to know about it, it made the wedding more intimate to me and reminded me of the brides who had used it before me. Consider wearing a piece of family jewelry or start the tradition yourself.
