Fun Wedding Tidbits!

I was doing some research on the wedding traditions we are familiar with today! Here are some fun ones I found.

*As early as the 13th century, it was considered good luck to have a piece of the bride's clothing. Therefore, wedding guests would chase after the bride to try and rip a piece of her dress off. Thank goodness we now toss bouquets instead of the wedding dress!

*In medieval times, a knight would wear his lady's colors through flowers. Thus, the reason the grooms wear boutonnieres today!

*In ancient times, the wedding ring was places on the third finger, left hand because it was thought to have a vain that runs straight to the heart. Thus making it have the strongest love connection. <3

Hope you enjoyed these fun tidbits! Happy planning!
