The traditions of the big day!

Some people call them traditions, superstitions or beliefs, either way there are many expectations to respect and pay attention to.

In order to have a long and happy marriage with a “happilyever after” ending, there are a few rules to keep in mind before the fateful “Yes, I do.”

The Bride then has to wear five things:

  • Something new: symbolizing the new life together that the newlyweds will have to face together.
  • Something new: symbolizing the new life together that the newlyweds will have to face together.
  • Something old: a connection to the past that the Bride will take with her in building her new family.
  • Something given as a gift: it stands for the affection of loved ones, take some of that person who gave you the gift with you
  • Something Borrowed: similar to “something given away” symbolizes union with friends or relatives and loved ones.
  • Something blue: stands for the bride’s sincerity, so just wear a small bow or ribbon or a small piece of jewelry in this color. In traction the bride is used to wear garter belt with bows in this color.

Part of the traditions is the delivery of the Bride’s bouquet, which is to be given by the future husband as a symbol of the last gift as fianc├ęs and delivered to the bride’s home by the Mother-in-law, a symbol of passing the baton with the future daughter-in-law.
This bouquet will then be thrown by the bride at the end of the day to a group of unmarried girls, and whoever catches it will be the next to get married.
The same goes for the groom’s tossing of the garter to unmarried guests; whoever catches it will be the next to get married.

…and still other traditions…

The veil also conceals an important meaning; in fact, it is said to protect the bride from the evil eye or evil spirits.

The throwing of rice is a symbol of fertility, a good omen for a large family.

Bridesmaids or best man, very much in vogue in recent years, have become a wedding trend! But let’s go back in time a bit, the bridesmaid in ancient Roman history takes on a meaning related to the possible presence of evil spirits that frowned upon brides, so the bride’s friends would dress similar to the bride to deceive these spirits and protect the bride.

Last but not least, remember to have your husbands pick you up by the neck before entering the house-the purpose is only to avoid tripping over the long white dress, which would indicate bad omens for the couple.

Do you also respect traditions?
