Whether you're tying the knot on Friday the 13th or just want to add a little extra luck to your big day, here's how to incorporate three popular symbols of luck:
- Bamboo: Ancient Chinese legend holds that the hearty bamboo plant brings couples happiness, prosperity and good health.
- Horseshoe: When a horseshoe is hung with the ends pointing up, it's said to attract good luck. But when it's hung with the ends facing down, all of the good luck will fall out. So keep your ends pointing up, whether you sew a tiny horseshoe into your wedding gown, nestle one into your bouquet, or try these ideas!
- Lavender: Carrying lavender on the big day was once though to ensure a long, happy marriage. The bloom also symbolizes love and loyalty.
