Wedding rituals

Posted by Claire Oxenham on January 21, 2013 at 5:25 PM

Ok this week I’m going to take a look at the rituals of a wedding that are still used today.

Being a wedding celebrant and also a very inquisitive person I like to know why we have the traditions we have and where they came from.

So I did what we all do now and googled it!!

These excerpts are taken from the website factmonster.com; I have also booked marked so I can have a nose around after!

There is only a brief description of each and of course not all of them but you can have a look for yourself if you want.

 

Bridal dress

• Wearing a new white dress to be used only for a wedding ceremony is a tradition that is only about 150 years old. Before that, few women could afford a dress they would wear only once.

• White traditionally symbolizes youth and innocence.

• Red and orange are popular in Asia and the Middle East, where they are considered joyful and festive colours.

Rings

• Engagement rings originated from the custom of exchanging rings to seal an important agreement.

• Rings are circular and without end to symbolize eternal love.

• A wedding ring is worn on the third finger of the left hand because it was believed that a vein or nerve ran directly from this finger to the heart. (this was thought by the Egyptians)

Some interesting facts I think you’ll agree

See you soon
