Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue……..
The wearing of a white gown to get married in is an old tradition dating back to the nineteenth century but probably influenced by Queen Victoria and her family. Victoria wore a gown of white satin with Honiton lace which she then wore to subsequent royal weddings and the dress was also worn by her daughter on her own wedding day. Previous to this, white and silver were strongly associated with royal weddings and that of nobility, infact at this time it was considered unlucky for the bride to wear anything other than white!
Today, the wedding ring symbolizes a promise of never-ending love, devotion, and loyalty. In short, it is the physical representation of the wedding vows. The history of the wedding ring, however, is not quite as romantic. Throughout history, the wedding ring has symbolized various parts of the traditional wedding vows, but rarely all at the same time.
Wedding cakes are a significant part of a Wedding ceremony. Today, wedding cakes are an elaborate multi-tiered artistic extravaganza and at the same time they are a gourmet’s delight. No wonder, couples like to cherish this sweet and special part of their wedding every year by cutting a cake on their anniversary.
