Honoring your Family Ancestry

There are a number of ways you can honor your family ancestry or deceased loved ones, but one of my favorite ways to do this is to carry a family heirloom with your bouquet. Pictured above is a bride who carried her grandmother's rosary to honor her Roman Catholic heritage. I've also seen brides carry a small Bible down the aisle, as well as an antique brooch pined to their bouquet wrap. Carrying a family heirloom with your bouquet is the perfect sentimental touch to a wedding ceremony!
