Bridal Traditions Explained

When a bride starts her wedding planning, there are a few wedding factors that seem to be consistent across the board: white gown (check!), something blue (check!), veil (check!). From a bridal consultant's perspective, there is something about a veil that tops off the bridal look. We all love to follow these traditions but have you ever wondered where they derived from? And why is it so important we follow them? We did a little investigating to explain these world-wide customs.

Although there is no definitive explanation for wearing a veil, many believe it has to do with ancient Greeks and Romans' fear of evil spirits and demons. In many cases, the veil prevented the bride from seeing well. That is why her father or another person "gave her away." Superstition has it that it is bad luck for the groom to see the bride prior to the wedding. A veil hiding her face also ensured that the groom would not see his soon-to-be-betrothed up until the ceremony. Eventually, the meaning behind the veil transformed as weddings evolved into religious ceremonies. The veil came to symbolize modesty and obedience. 
Although engagement rings are great symbols to represent a future wedding, engagement and wedding rings are actually worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because it was once thought that a vein in that finger led directly to the heart. 
In Western cultures, white gowns became popular in 1840 after the marriage of Queen Victoria to Albert of Saxe-Coburg. The queen wore a white gown to incorporate some lace she prized. The official wedding portrait photograph was widely published, and many brides opted for white in accordance with the Queen's choice. So wearing white isn't a symbol of purity as many have come to believe. 

Something old represents continuity.

Something new offers optimism for the future.

Something borrowed symbolizes borrowed happiness.

Something blue stands for purity, love and fidelity.

A sixpence in your shoe is a wish for good fortune and prosperity.

Rooted from the deep heart of Africa, jumping the broom has become a popular African tradition passed down through generations.  The ritual is for the couple to jump over a broom at the end of the ceremony. "Jumping the Broom" symbolizes sweeping away the old and welcoming the new, or a symbol of new beginnings.
