Thematic Tuesday: Johnny Hancock

Today's something blue involves shoes- but not the blue shoes or soles you usually see.  Here, a tradition started of the bridesmaids signing their name on the bottom of the brides shoe as a memory of the day or writing a sweet congratulatory note to make the shoes a special souvenir!

Through some google searching, I learned that this is a Greek wedding tradition (a nice surprise for this Greek!)-- the outcomes differ but it varies from the first/last to rub off is the next to be married or the number of names that rub off/stay on are indicative of how many children the happy couple will bear. 

This is also a great idea for you last minute brides.  Forgot your something blue?  Have someone pick up a blue sharpie that day and boom- all set!  

Would you like some names and notes on your shoes or would you not want to ruin your pristine soles?
