S/O of Top Tier...
« on: Yesterday at 11:12:37 AM »
the thread about the top tier of the wedding cake being eaten on the couple's first anniversary brought this to mind. It isn't exactly related to weddings but it's close.

When I was growing up, it was a tradition for the Maid of Honor to pot a piece of ivy or philodendron from her bouquet and present the plant to the couple on their first anniversary. 

Does anyone know of this or similar traditions?

I've never heard of it -- I'm glad too, because I have an utterly black thumb!! If one was gifted to me I would have killed it, and if I had that as part of my duties, I would fail. :(

My MoH used some of the silk flowers from her bouquet to make us a flower arrangement, but it wasn't because of any tradition that we followed (I don't think anyway).

I'd never heard of that, but it sounds like a neat thing!
