Soooo... yea i was bored. and went net surfing and came upon some intresting facts (intresting to me atleast). and thought i'd share... I'm a sucker for menial intresting facts....


Why Does the Bride Wear a Veil?

The bride’s veil and bouquet are of greater antiquity than her white gown. Her veil, which was yellow in ancient Greece and red in ancient Rome, usually shrouded her from head to foot, and has since the earliest of times, denoted the subordination of a woman to man. The thicker the veil, the more traditional the implication of wearing it.

According to tradition, it is considered bad luck for the bride to be seen by the groom before the ceremony. As a matter of fact, in the old days of marriage by purchase, the couple rarely saw each other at all, with courtship being of more recent historical emergence.

The lifting of the veil at the end of the ceremony symbolizes male dominance. If the bride takes the initiative in lifting it, thereby presenting herself to him, she is showing more independence.

Veils came into vogue in the United States, when Nelly Curtis wore a veil at her wedding to George Washington’s aid, Major Lawrence Lewis. Major Lewis saw his bride to be standing behind a filmy curtain and commented to her how beautiful she appeared. She then decided to veil herself for their ceremony.


Soo remember ladies.. lift your own veil! XDXDXD

Oooh thankyou, that's very interesting! Umm, do you know why they kiss at a wedding? it's to seal a contract, ancient romans used this method to seal deals. Also the bride stands at the groom's left side so that in olden times the groom could easily reach his sword if anyone barged in to stop the wedding. Strange but true!

Why cant the woman be swinging the sword?? thats how it'd be in this age... "how dare you interupt my wedding that i've spent months planning!!! enguarde!"


heres another wedding fact:

Why Carry the Bride Across the Threshold?

During the days of “Marriage by Capture,” the bride was certainly not going to go peacefully into the bridegroom’s abode, thus, she was dragged or carried across the threshold. In even earlier times, it was believed that family demons followed the woman and to keep her family demons from going into the groom’s home, she was carried across the threshold upon her entering for the first time. After that, the demons could not enter as she would come in and go out of the home.
