Moroccan wedding blanket

I stumbled upon this post at Love, Adorned's blog about a new product they got in their NYC store.  I was immediately in love with the idea and beauty of this antique Moroccan wedding blanket.   Apparently, in this country, friends and relatives of the bride create these beautiful blankets made to bring good luck- sewing each sequin by hand!  Amazing!  


I think I may want one these...Mom and friends, you have time though ;)

What do you think of this type of wedding ritual?
