Wedding Traditions

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is seeing which traditions and symbols the couple uses to accentuate the meaning of their very special day.

From the white dress in Judeo-Christian weddings, representing the bride’s virginity, or purity of spirit, to the symbolism of an eternal union expressed by the continuous circling gold of a wedding band, each element from the ceremony to the honeymoon has an explanation.

Knowing why generations have followed the same customs, knowing why traditions are traditions makes these gestures thoughtful and full of feeling.
