I'm not carrying a bouquet; I'm carrying a bowl of apples.

Nice! I guess that's traditional Viking?

Research doesn't say. I found myself having a violent reaction against carrying a bouquet, so I found an alternative. You have no idea how hard it was to look at bouquets for my sister at the florist -- I almost cried, it made me so twitchy.

That's very cool!

Does the type of apples coordinate with your dress? Do you have a bouquet of apple colors? Did you just tell someone to go to the store and get whatever. I'm very curious about this... what a neat idea.

Coordinate? Me? You must have me confused with some other bride. :-) I tried as hard as I could to get the colors of the bridal party's clothing to clash, because I wanted a riot of color, and yet they all look pretty good together.

I'm going to try to get Fujis, Galas, or Braeburns, because they are oh so tasty. Otherwise, I'll get Golden Delicious or whatever else I can find; it's early in the season for apples.

I chose to carry apples in honor of Sif, Thor's wife, and Idunn, goddess of youth, vitality, and springtime. Her magical apples kept the Aesir eternally young.

It also eliminates the question of whether I'm going to toss a bouquet (I wouldn't anyway; there'll be like three unmarried females at my wedding and one of them is 13). Now I can say, "No, I'm not, but I can pelt you with apples if you like." I'll leave out the part about playing varsity softball in college. :-D
