"See all the cute photos below? This is an old German wedding tradition that Franzi told me about. A bed sheet is strung up and a large heart shape is painted to the front of it. The bride and groom each get a pair of scissors and have to cut around each side of the heart and meet in the middle. The groom then has to carry his bride through the heart. Could this tradition be any cuter?!?!

There, the signs aren't necessary, guest just know that they are invited to come and chat.
