Even though I am in Houston TX, most of my family is from Louisiana and that is where my parents were married. I even have "eaux" at the end of my last name. ^.^ My parents 30th anniversary came up this past Monday, July 18th and I was going through their wedding photos with my mom. I noticed a pic with all her bridesmaids and a few guests standing around the cake holding ribbons, preparing to pull the charms from them. I knew this was an old tradition but didn't realize my mom had done it. I would want to do this as well. What are your thoughts? Would it be neat to continue what my mom did or is this tradition old fashioned? Also where could I find these wedding charms?
