Where did all the habits, the faiths and the traditions surrounding the marriage come from? Here are some explanations.
The bridal dress has changed a lot in style and colour over the centuries. Many superstitions have long surrounded the bridal dress, among them that the bride should never make her own dress, should not look at herself in the mirror when trying it on, or the groom should not see the dress before the ceremony. The wedding veil dates back to the time when men hid their future wife’s face when kidnapping them. The garter dates back to the Paleolithic age and was said to have magical powers.
