The Knottie Knot is a piece of wood, plastic or metal that has been decorated in a wedding theme by a previous bride. There are a few in circulation, each of which has been made by different people, and no two Knottie Knots are the same. Each has string or ribbon attached to it which then has been adorned with postcards full advice from the Destination Brides that came before you.
When a bride gets married, she buys a postcard from her wedding location. On this she writes her thoughts, advice and wishes on it for the brides that will follow her and then attaches it to the ribbons. She then sends it on to the next person in line.
The idea is that you wait until your wedding day, and on that day you read all the beautiful things that those who have come before you on our board have written. This tradition has been going since 2007, and a lot of Knotties have enjoyed participating in it. This is one of those great traditions that makes the Destination Wedding board one of the really close knit boards on The Knot.
There are only 3 rules for those who wish to participate in the Knottie Knot tradition:
1. You must be an active poster on the Destination Wedding board.
2. You must mail the Knottie Knot the to the next person via Priority Mail with a tracking number.
3. You MUST enjoy both reading the advice and sharing the advice with the brides to come
