Traditional Ways To Bring A Little Extra Luck To Your Wedding Day

According to a Japanese proverb, "The day you decide to do it is your lucky day!" If you've managed to find the person you love unconditionally and want to spend the rest of your life with, then you've already had plenty of good luck shining down on you. Planning a wedding date together will be a lucky day, no matter what. Just in case you're superstitious, WhereBrideGo.com has found a few traditional symbols that can add some extra good luck to your wedding day.

All About Wedding Cakes & Wedding Cake Tops

Wedding guests anxiously await the appearance of the bride at the ceremony, but when they enter the reception, the first thing most people look for is that gorgeous wedding cake. Whether you opt to have a gigantic cake full of edible decorations, a simpler cake with a beautiful wedding cake topper, or a dessert station with lots of sweet options, dessert will be a focal point at your wedding reception.

Creative Wedding Themes: Steampunk

Some couples keep it simple and just pick a wedding color or two, but others prefer to get creative and come up with a theme for the entire wedding.

One really fun theme that we carry creative wedding accessories for at WhereBridesGo.com is Steampunk. 


What is Steampunk?
Steampunk is categorized as a genre of science fiction. It has a historical setting, often Victorian England or America's Wild West, and it incorporates re-imagined modern technology in a way that is inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.
