Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. It’s a lovely wedding tradition but it’s not terribly adventurous, is it?

Western weddings, while just as wonderful as those taking place in other parts of the world, feel fairly straightforward, even staid and boring compared to the thoughtful (and often fun) wedding traditions of other cultures where throwing plates, pinning money on the couple and stomping on glasses is de rigeur and, usually, contains some lovely symbolism.
