Saving the top of your cake
Preserving the top tier of your wedding cake and eating it a year later is known as an omen for good luck. You’ll get to celebrate your first anniversary together by reliving one of the most special moments you’ve shared.
Your wedding ring is a romantic symbol of eternity with your partner, hence the circle that has no beginning or end, the bling is just extra love.
White wedding dress
Women didn’t always wear white on their wedding day. It wasn’t until 1840 when Queen Victoria wore a white gown on her wedding day that this trend took off. If you want to go against the grain why not wear a different color, you may create your own trend like Queen Victoria.
Bridesmaids & Wedding Veils
Fun fact, bridesmaids used to wear white like the bride to protect the couple from evil spirits. The wedding veil was also originally created to ward off evil spirits and protects the bride’s purity on her wedding day.
This tradition started as a way to shower the newlyweds with fertility. We wonder though, does it work the same when you use sparklers?
Over the threshold
