10 Fun Wedding Facts!

Have you ever sat down and thought to yourself ….”Why do we wear our engagement and wedding bands on on left hand?” or “What is the purpose of Something Blue, Something Old, etc?”… Well, we did some searching! Check out some of the interesting facts we found!

1.) One of history’s earliest engagement rings was given to Princess Mary, daughter of Henry VIII. She was only 2 years old at the time!!

2.) In English tradition, ‘Wednesday’ is considered to the BEST DAY to marry! However, ‘Monday’ is for wealth and ‘Tuesday’ is for health… Decisions, decisions….

3.) The Groom carries the Bride across the threshold to bravely protect her from evil spirits lurking below!

4.) According to Hindu tradition, rain on your wedding day is actually GOOD LUCK!

5.) Believe it or not, according to English folklore, ‘Saturday’ is the unluckiest day for a wedding! Funny; it’s actually the most popular day of the week to marry!

6.) Engagement and wedding rings are worn on the 4th finger of the left hand because it was once thought that the vein in that finger led directly to the heart… <3

7.) 17 tons of gold are made into wedding rings each year in the United Stated! That’s A LOT of gold!

8.) Brides carry or wear ‘Something Old’ on their wedding day to symbolize continuity with the past.

9.) The ‘Something Blue’ in a bridal ensemble symbolizes purity, fidelity and love!

10.) Honeymoons weren’t always so luxurious! Ancient Norse bridal couples went into hiding after the wedding and a family member would bring them a cup of honey wine for 30 days (or one moon), which is how the term ‘HONEYMOON’ originated!

Thinking about a ‘Winter Wonderland’ wedding theme?

Winter Wonderland Weddings will WOW your guests and save you money…

There is no better setting than a Winter Wonderland for your special day! Imagine a snow white backdrop with white twinkling lights. Your guests will experience something that they will never forget. And the benefits of having a winter wedding for you are endless!
Less Competitive & Savings!:
Because the winter is considered the off-peak season in the wedding industry, you will have an easier time finding a venue as well as your vendors. There are even usually discounts that are available for off-peak wedding dates!
Elegant Decorating:
If you are getting married in a church, chances are it will already be decorated for the holidays. Create an over-the-top feel by incorporating holiday or winter themed centerpieces. Imagine vases filled with pine cones enhanced with beautiful deep red and gold colors that will create a warm and intimate feel for your reception. Ass a stunning white shimmering cake with delicate icicles for the final touches.
Fun Food & Drinks:
Create a unique menu full of winter comfort food. You can also get creative with a signature drink or spiked eggnog! Add a hot cocoa and s’mores station to dessert to really warm your guests!
Favors & More!:
Using a holiday or winter theme opens the doors to some unique favor ideas. And since you will be newlyweds, invite your guests to bring you an ornament that they can ass ti a tree during cocktail hour. Then your first tree as husband and wife will be filled with wedding memories!
