Here is a question from one of our readers:
Love your Greek traditions blog.
I have a question that I can’t find the answer to and the oldies in the family seem to be at odds with each other over what’s right and not. I wanted to use my wedding veil to be a part of the lambatha for our baby’s baptism. It got a little damaged at the edges at the wedding thanks to my bracelet catching on it and it’s made from nice touli that would be elegant on a lambatha.
Is this, as far as you know, ok to do? My mother says no, cause it’s bad luck, my aunty says yes why not it’s better than leaving it unused in the cupboard.
Thanks in advance for you point of view.”
- Donate the veil to Angel Gowns – a voluntary organisation that uses old wedding dresses to make outfits for babies who have left this world too early.
- Sell the veil online – gumtree or ebay.
- Give the veil to a friend or relative getting married – it can be their ‘something borrowed’.
- Cut the tulle up and use it for bombonerie.
- Keep it in your cupboard. Try it on once a year on your wedding anniversary and reminisce your wedding day.
