Wedding Traditions From Other Countries
Australia

Lisa Schultz shared her family’s tradition:All of the brides on my mother’s side of the family have carried horseshoes for good luck over their arms.

The horseshoes, rather than being actual metal plates, are crocheted and a long ribbon is attached in a loop from end to end. The horseshoe is worn upside down over the arm of the bride during the wedding to bring luck to the marriage.
