Did you ever wonder how the tradition of the bride and groom kissing at the end of the ceremony ever come about? (It’s not what you think.) Why was rice thrown after the ceremony? Why does a bride carry a bouquet?
These are just some of the traditions that just about every wedding observes but do you know the meaning behind these traditions. Well, if you are curious, read on!
Traditionally, rice was thrown after the ceremony to signify, are you ready, FERTILITY.
White wedding cakes symbolize what? That’s right, FERTILITY.
Flower girls represent what at a wedding? You might recognize a theme right now, it’s FERTILITY.
Why do brides and grooms kiss at the end of the ceremony? No, it’s not about FERTILITY (although kissing may play a part in that later), it’s because in old Roman times, the belief was that the bride and groom exchanged a piece of their souls during the kiss.
Why does the bride carry a bouquet? Again, in old Roman times (do you know any old Romans?) the belief was that the bouquet ‘warded off evil spirits.’
Did you know that 40% of brides marry the first man they ever fall in love with!
