    Oh, that’s quite attractive! Don’t think I’ll be able to convince Mr. Pants that we should wear sabots, though.

    Check out this sampling of traditional Norwegian bridal gear. Gooodness gracious. I love the traditional dress, but the concept of their bridal headwear seems to be pin as much silver jewelry onto a felt hat as possible!
