Sometimes you read something and it just gives you a little lift. This happened me yesterday as I was browsing the Weddings Online forums and I spotted an interestingly titled post: The Bridehood of the Traveling Lanterns.
One of the ladies, Future Mrs P has kindly offered to send the lanterns she and Mr P bought as pew ends for their weddings on their merry way to light up a few more ceremonies around the country. Her fellow Wedding Online Brides (or ‘Wollies’ as they’re known) then signed up to borrow the lanterns for their own weddings with the promise that they’d contact the next bride on the list after their day was over and pass them on.
And I’m thinking, what a great idea! Paying it forward is the new paying it by credit card.
And I’m also thinking, what else can we pass on from one bride to another? I’ve already received lots of bridal magazines from friends that have been up and down the aisle, and I know there’s a bag or two of hen party …paraphernalia floating around the family that I can expect to see when my time comes.
Have you anything you would like to pay forward? Leave a comment below, or if you’re a Wollie, start a Bridehood yourself.
