Every country and every family has its own weddinging traditions. See our list of the most popular wedding facts and superstitions. What more we will explain where do they come from, and what was the meaning hundreds of years ago…
Something old, something new and something blue.
This one seems to be as old as time. Wearing “something old” represents the bride’s past, while the “something new” symbolizes the couple’s happy future. The bride is supposed to get her “something borrowed” from someone who is happily married in the hope that some of that person’s good fortune rubs off on her. “Something blue” denotes fidelity and love.
The tradition of wearing a veil comes from ancient Rome times. It’s all about fearing away the evil spirits, jealous of bride happiness.
Rain can ruin your wedding plans… but it’s a good sign! In some cultures, rain on your wedding day symbolizes fertility and cleansing.
Have you ever seen a young couple, throwing the champagne glasses and smashing them into pieces? According to tradition, however many pieces the glassware breaks into will symbolize how many years the couple will be happily married.
