Have you ever wondered where the wedding traditions we all consider to be part of a wedding day come from.
This month I am going to look at a few of these traditions in my blog.
So why do most brides wear a white dress ?
This tradition didn't start until the 1800's. Prior to this time couples got married in their "Sunday best" and during the Middle ages brides often wore blue as a symbol of purity.
It was Queen Victoria who set the trend for white wedding dresses, when she wore a lavish white dress. This became so popular that even today most brides opt to where white or ivory. Interestingly, in a nod to the past brides often also have "something blue"
Choosing a Celebrant to help you create that special ceremony is an important step towards making your occasion a really memorable one. Why not take advantage of the free initial meeting I offer ? I believe it is important to meet informally to discuss your ideas and what I can offer. Meeting also gives us an opportunity to explore the type of ceremony that would best suit your needs.
