The wedding tradition of the groom wearing a boutonniere originates in medieval times when a knight wore his lady’s colors (through flowers) as a statement of his love. Nature has it’s own beautiful colors that amplify and bring to life in many different ways the colors of your own wedding. Every color finds a glamorous glow in the natural lights of nature.

Showering the couple with rice is an ancient tradition. As rice is considered a life giving seed, it is thought that by throwing it on the couple they will be bestowed with fertility and have many children. Many churches now forbid it on their property, but there are some safe alternatives to throwing rice such as bubbles and bird seed. There are plenty of birds here in Foxburg, so the bride and groom can be showered with many of the life giving blessings for this ancient tradition. Call or email us for more information on setting up your special day here in Foxburg.
Wearing white dates back to Victorian times when Queen Victoria abandoned the usual royal tradition of wearing a silver gown, instead choosing to wear white. Before that time brides simply wore their best gown, rather than a special wedding dress. The popularity of white can also be attributed to its symbolizing purity and virginity, White was also thought to ward off evil spirits. Here at the Foxburg Inn the color of your wedding dress can be as formal or as simple as you desire. The atmosphere is like a “horse of many colors” and can be suited to fit your needs. So call or come visit us here at The Foxburg Inn and find out how your colors fit into the beauty of mother natures creation.

The saying, Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue is a popular rhyme that has been used since the Victorian age. The “something old” represents the bond to the bride’s family and her old life. “Something new” represents the couple’s new life together and their future hope for happiness, prosperity and success, “something borrowed” from a happily married woman is meant to impart similar happiness to the bride and “something blue” represents fidelity and constancy.
