Mercedes Wedding Cars provide a quality wedding car service to Falkirk and surrounding areas.
There are many wedding traditions that we still use and conform to both out of tradition, and superstition.
Wedding cars have long had one tradition associated with them – noise!
At one time, wedding cars would take the bride to the church and then the newlyweds to a separate reception venue. After spending some hours at the reception, eating, dancing and celebration, the happy couple would then depart from the venue to take their honeymoon – usually in the same wedding car.
Quite often, at this point, the wedding party well-wishers would have tied a variety of objects to the bumper of the wedding car so that as the couple were driven away, noise would be made.
Tin cans were one object that was tied to the bumper, and as they were dragged down the road, would make a fairly loud noise. The idea behind this was that the noise would ward off evil spirits!
Wedding cars Falkirk customers do not usually tie shoes to the bumper of their cars anymore, but their car can be decorated with a variety of objects.
But where did it come from?
Originally, in Tudor times shoes were thrown at couples to wish them luck. Shoes at this time, especially the bride’s shoes played an important role in passing the ‘possession’ of the bride from her father to her husband. Gradually this tradition evolved into tying shoes onto horse drawn carriages, followed by tying on to car bumpers.
However, the popularity of tying shoes to wedding cars seems to have given way to noisy cans.
Wedding traditions are steeped history, and pinpointing where they come from is difficult as they are often passed down through families over the years.
