Flowers express love, romance, kindness, and affection. It’s no wonder that flowers are used in happy occasions like weddings. Let us delve into the tradition of throwing bridal bouquets and the meanings behind the diverse types of flowers used in ceremonies.
In the Middle Ages, English brides threw bouquets of fragrant herbs, such as dill, to represent lust. They used spices in the bouquet to ward off bad luck. Brides were considered lucky, so guests would try to grab something belonging to her to improve their luck. To make her escape, the bride threw her bouquet into the crowd. This is where the tradition of throwing the bouquet is thought to have begun.
Make sure you choose your favorite flowers, or some that match your decoration or your dress!
Determining the best type of bridal shoe to go with your gorgeous gown—and finding the perfect pair—is a top priority. For some brides, it's the ultimate fashion quest—almost perhaps even rivaling that of the search for the dress—while for other brides, scoring a solid wedding shoe is as simple as considering comfort (which is key no matter how much you value style).
Whatever your priorities might be, at the end of the day, your wedding-day shoes have a major role to fulfill. You have to like them, yes, but you also have to want to wear them—often for long periods of time over a solid, 15-plus hour day (think about that for a moment). So how do you figure out what type of bridal shoe is best for you? We asked a few professionals to weigh in.
TIP…..Pay attention to any detailing or embellishments in your gown that could be echoed in your bridal footwear, as well as specific materials (lace, satin, tulle, etc.) that could be matched.
Where does the tradition of wearing something blue comes from?
The English custom of brides wearing “something blue” on their wedding day dates back to the 1890s. It derives from the Old English rhyme, "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, A Sixpence in your Shoe"—which names the four objects a bride should include or carry with her on her wedding day. It was said to symbolize purity, love, and fidelity - three key things for a solid marriage.
One belief was that the garter was a symbol of the newly weds consummating their marriage, so family and friends would take the garter as proof of consummation. This ancient belief result in the garter being removed from the bride and given to someone who attended the wedding.
Today, the removal of the garter is reserved for the groom. There is typically a time set aside during the reception for the groom to do so in front of all the witnesses followed by the groom tossing the garter to all the unmarried bachelors in the crowd. This garter toss is very similar to the bouquet toss in that it is said that whoever catches the garter will be the next man to be married. The man who caught the garter will then place the garter on the woman who caught the bouquet.
Because the wedding garter is hidden underneath your wedding dress, you can choose one that fits your personality. Entos garter is a simple white one to follow tradition, but will make you feel as confident as ever.
