Starting Family Traditions on Your Wedding Day

When women were just girls, a good number of them dreamed of the perfect wedding that one day will be theirs to celebrate. Some of them would even picture themselves in their mother’s old wedding dress or even wearing their grandmother’s necklace, which she wore in her own wedding day several decades back. As these girls mature, they become more detailed in their thoughts that they would go as far as planning the theme and some of the activities of this special event. Dreaming is free, so why not dream big?

There are plenty of traditions involved in a wedding. Of course, we are very familiar with common line “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue”. Some people would really try to complete these items on their special event. They believe that they will have a better married life if they do. Another tradition is the so-called heirloom. It can be as simple as a handkerchief or as elegant as a studded bracelet, but there’s just something to be said about the feeling you get when you are able to participate in a tradition that has meant so much to your family. An “heirloom” doesn’t have to be old. Memories are continuously made, so why not start with you?

The quality of an item that could possibly become an heirloom candidate is very important. It needs to have quality construction so that it can last long enough to be in the family for generations to come. Timelessness is another factor to consider. When you want something to be passed on to your children and to your children’s children, avoid trends or fads since you can’t be sure if during their time to marry, the same fad or trend still exists. Styles come back after generations, but you can never tell exactly when.

One of the easiest ways to start a tradition that will stay in the family is with jewelry. One that has a story to tell behind a certain piece is just perfect to start a lasting heirloom. On wedding events, wedding cuff links are just the right pieces to consider as an heirloom. They are built to last and they never go out of style. Wedding cuff links can easily be marked with designs that mean a lot to you. They can also be shaped into whatever form you like and can be made with any special metal or precious stones to add solid value to it.

Just imagine yourself sitting on the couch with your daughter or son while you are flipping through photo albums from your wedding day several years from now. Your child will surely enjoy viewing your photos knowing that one day, he or she will be walking down the aisle, too, and you will be there for them – with a special gift that is a nice pair of wedding cuff links worn with love in a very special event a few decades back. There really is no reason you can’t start your own family tradition on your wedding day, right?
