Here's one we all know- and it's meaning.
Something Old, Something New,
Something borrowed, something blue
Something Old-Signifies a sense of tradition and represents the link to the bride's life and her family. Many brides would wear their mother's wedding gown or a grandmother?s jewelry.
Something New-This stands for hope for the future. Any new item purchased as part of the bridal attire will suffice. Jewelry or a comb from Bella Wedding Shop will be great.
Something Borrowed- You're supposed to borrow something from a friend or family member who is happily married. Their happiness will rub off on you and bring you happiness too. (It must be returned to ensure Good Luck)
Something Blue- Blue originally symbolized purity. Both the bride and groom wore a blue band on their wedding attire.
The wedding band and the ring finger- (according to legend )
The round shape symbolizes the continuity of Love The gold is a symbol of the sun's strength Roman wedding rings were carved with two clasped hands; very early rings had a key through which a woman could open her husbands heart The ancient Egyptians believed a vein ran through the third finger that ran straight to the heart called "the vein of love".
Diamond engagement rings were given by medieval Italians, because of their belief that the diamond was created from the flames of love.
Rose petals in the aisle- Rose petals are thrown before the bride as she walks down the aisle to ward-off evil spirits below the ground and grant fertility.
The Wedding Cake Feeding Cake To Each Other- this symbolizes how the bride and groom will nourish and care for each other. It became tradition to pile up several small cakes, one on top of the other, as high as they could, and the bride and groom would kiss over the tower and try not to knock it down. If they were successful, it meant a lifetime of Prosperity During the reign of King Charles II of England, it became customary to turn this cake into an enjoyably edible palace, iced with white sugar. There we come by the tiered wedding cake.
Married when the year is new, he'll be loving, kind & true,
When February birds do mate, You wed nor dread your fate.
If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you'll know.
Marry in April when you can, Joy for Maiden & for Man.
Marry in the month of May, and you'll surely rue the day.
Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you'll go.
Those who in July do wed, must labor for their daily bred.
Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see
Marry in September's shrine, your living will be rich and fine.
If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry.
If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember.
When December snows fall fast, marry and true love will last.
