Your wedding will be a day to remember for a long time but, have you ever wondered why we do certain things at weddings? Here, as you search for the perfect wedding cars in Johnstone, we explain some of the reasoning and superstitions behind common wedding traditions.
Like many wedding customs, throwing confetti is a pagan custom, brought from Italy many centuries ago. Before manufactured confetti, anything from rice to flower petals was thrown over the happy couple as a way to wish them a prosperous and fertile future. The throwing of confetti and such like, however, has a chequered history with many wedding venues asking for confetti either not to be used, or environmentally degradable type only…
The bridal party is important on the wedding day. And, when it comes to wedding cars in Johnstone, the number of bridesmaids dictates the number of vehicles on the day. In modern weddings, the group of female friends surrounding the bride are there to soothe and cajole, but traditionally the bride was seen to need their presence to ward off evil spirits on the wedding day.
… in all honesty, the best man was nothing more than a friend to accompany the groom to the church. In the modern age, his organising prowess extends to making sure the stag party goes smoothly and the turn up to the venue with the rings. After this, apart from a speech, the job is done. And, according to tradition, there is no place in wedding cars in Johnstone for the best man.
Modern day interpretation is that to wear white is a symbol of purity which it may be, but the tradition did not start out as such. Queen Victoria set the trend for a lavish and white wedding gown when she married Prince Albert in 1840. Before this, the bride married in any colour she desired, but usually her best dress.
If you do, then you are carrying on a Roman tradition that preserved the modesty and chastity of a bride before her marriage. It was in and out of favour over the centuries, making a re-appearance with a bang in the 19th century. Today, many brides choose to wear a veil in their hair, but not necessarily covering the face.
Everything went great and thank you so much for the kind gift and champers!
