"You May Now Kiss The Bride"

I was looking through one of my favorite books, Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette, and came across a fun wedding fact I thought I would share.

Why does a wedding ceremony end with a kiss? A kiss was long believed to be the medium for the exchange of spirits, where a part of the bride's soul joined the groom's soul, and vice versa, truly uniting the couple as one. In some cultures, a kiss literally seals the wedding contract, while in others a kiss is not required. Most people just think of it as an expression of love.

Happy Planning!
