What is the top wedding destination in the world? Las Vegas of course! The city sees more weddings than any other destination in the world!
Your flower girls are more important than you think. In ancient times, they threw flowers in front of the bride to lead her to a sweeter life.
Brides that love the colored dress trend in some countries steer clear of yellow when choosing their gowns. It implies cheating and jealousy. Two issues that will definitely doom a marriage.
We love this one. Ducks have lifelong partners so Korean grooms will have a happily married friend make two wooden ducks to place inside the new couple’s house. The meaning is that the couple will stay together forever like ducks.
If you can’t have ducks….Try having 1,001 origami cranes present at your wedding. The Japanese believe they bring good luck. Ask your guests to start folding ahead of your nuptials.
Ouch, talk about hurt feelings. The most ineligible woman in a Jewish family found a groom. So, the guests crown the bride’s mother with a wreath and celebrate around her. It’s seen as an accomplishment of sorts that the mother was able to find a groom willing to marry the “most ineligible” bride.
First yellow, now green. Scotland may have beautiful, lush, natural greenery, but Scottish brides don’t dare wear green on their wedding day. It’s considered a color for fairies and revenge. The superstition even boils down to the menu. So, good luck finding broccoli at a Scottish wedding.
This is Sparta! Grooms and groomsmen heading out to celebrate their bachelor parties have the ancient Spartans to thank for that tradition. Back then, all Spartan men were in the military and engaged Spartan men viewed an impending marriage as a celebration fit for a soldier. The men celebrated in the same way as they would going to war.
