{A Wealth of Fertile Wishes}

Dear Bride-to-Be:
Did you know that flowers, cakes, and children used as a part of wedding festivities through history were all originally symbolic of the desire for “fertility”? Many ancient customs came from the wish of the community for the couple to be blessed with children as well as an abundant and full life. Times have changed through the centuries, but a community’s “fertile” wishes of well-being and happiness remain universal.

How does your community express tradition? Even if your community’s ways are not how you do things now, there is still a way to include what’s at the heart of the matter—their love. And whether or not you use any rituals or traditions for your wedding (putting a coin in your shoe, cutting a big wedding cake, having a flower girl, tossing a bouquet, ecetera!) you will be just as married, just as capable to live an abundant life, and just as able to find ways to include your community’s well-wishes of love!

What could be more “fertile”...more beautiful?

Love. Listen. Let go.
...with love from Cornelia
