If I get married, my wedding gown will most likely be pale blue, it's my favorite color :D Most of all I'd love to have a handfasting(a Pagan wedding ceremony), but that's actually out of the question...I'll not marry in a church though. And here's my idea of my perfect wedding ring, a Celtic Claddagh Ring ;) :

That's a beautiful ring, Marianne!

My something borrowed was my Grandma's wedding ring (she had passed away 3 years earlier), which I tied to the ribbon on a tiny bible (the something new) I carried with my bouquet, and my something blue was my garter.

BTW, I carried a bible because I loved that my mom did the same thing for her wedding and I have never seen anyone else do that. I liked that I was carrying on a tradition.

Also, I thought rain on your wedding day was good luck! It rained all day on our wedding day. We are still blissfully married going on 6 years this Fall.
