thanks to Mrs. H for last week''s thread! don''t forget to post your favorite groomsmen photos there!

this week please share your favorite photo of a tradition you honored on your wedding day. some examples are lighting of unity candles, tossing of the bouquet, the garter removal, etc. it doesn''t have to be an activity. it can also be the use of a certain item on your wedding that has been passed down through the generations. remember to only share ONE photo per weekly thread.

I picked my dad giving me away
I''m the youngest and a total daddy''s girl so it was emotional for a lot of people there who knew our relationship and us as well

We didn''t really have many traditional moments and I already posted cake and first dance pics so I decided to go with toasts. There aren''t any I love where you can see me holding our flutes so here is DH toasting me at our table.

During my father''s speech. You can see him blurry in the background. He is a great speech writer and I really enjoyed that part of the reception. I also love how happy DH looks here.

As much as we wanted to avoid it, our wedding had the 'traditional' conga line and limbo dance contest.

Our korovai, a traditional Ukrainian wedding bread used to welcome the new couple into the community--lots of symbolism in all the different adornments.

us lighting our homemade unity candles for our fairytale themed wedding. I like how you can see the coach on the back.

This is a non-pro shot, but I love it.
It''s from our first dance.

great traditions, everyone! i''ve had a hard time with this. so i decided on this: my mom and i have had this thing where she gives me a kiss on the cheek and we get a picture at different important events. we have one from most of my high school dances, my college graduation, etc. so, here''s ours from the wedding.

sorry the photo turned out so small...
I''ll see if I can try that again

did a different shot of the same cake cutting to see if it will be larger...not sure though if it will so I apologise in advance.

We made our own tradition....instead of a unity candle, we decided to do a "unity didgideroo" of sorts. My husband loves to play and is very good at it, I am far less good at it but I also play a bit (we also make them together). I like it as it reflects the personality and non-traditional atmosphere of our wedding quite well :)

There were a few pictures of us doing this I liked so I just had to pic one already :)

My mom's cousin crocheted me a lucky penny for my dress--she said she had one on her wedding day and it's brought her and her husband luck for the last 35 years. This is it before I pinned it on:
