Wedding myths and traditions

Monday, September 5th, 2011

As we wrap up the unofficial end to summer, I thought it would be fun to take a look at wedding myths and traditions and what they really mean…
It has been said that rain on your wedding day is good luck….have you wondered what kind of luck that may mean?? Babies…thats right girls if you want lots of children to bless your house get married in a rainy month.
Maybe you aren’t quite sure you are ready for a big family..avoid having rice thrown at you…rice is considered a life giving seed, it is said that by throwing rice at the couple you are bestowing the couple with fertility and many children.
Looking for a no fail way to keep your make up looking perfect on the big day? Wear pearls…it is said that pearls take the place of the brides real tears on her wedding day…so there you a go the perfect way to keep your mascara looking gorgeous all day long.
We have all heard that wearing white symbolizes purity and virginity…did you also know the wearing of white was also thought to ward off evil spirits…and we all know that is the last thing you want hanging around the buffet line at your wedding.
Looking to bring purity, loyalty and true love to your marriage, choose orange blossoms, daisies and red roses for your bouquet.
Sharing that sweet piece of wedding cake. The Romans believed that by eating the cake together, a special bond was created between the couple, and the cakes sweetness was thought to bring sweetness to all areas of the couples life.
And finally how could I forget the Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue…here you go..”something old” represents the bond to the bride’s family and her old life; “something new” represents the couple’s new life together and their future hope for happiness, prosperity and success; “something borrowed” from a happily married woman is meant to impart similar happiness to the bride; and “something blue” represents fidelity and constancy.
Happy Labor Day..
