#5           If the clog fits… wear it!
In the old days Dutch farmers and labourers would wear wooden shoes: clogs to protect their
feet and keep them warm in the cold winters. Nowadays these wooden footwear have become
a symbol for Dutch culture. Wearing these wooden clogs in a few of your wedding photos or
even with all your guests in a group photo is a unique souvenir for a memorable wedding.
A great gift to your guests would be handing out custom made clogs with your initials and
colours of the wedding. There’s clogs in different types of shapes and sizes, even as small as a
keychain.
