Wedding Traditions
Make One your Own

What are Wedding traditions?
Wedding traditions are rituals or customs that families and cultures carry on through time and make them part of your day.

There are some traditions that are so popular that you don't even think about them.
You just take them for granted and they are a big part of your ceremony and celebration.

Wearing a veil, a white wedding dress, exchanging vows, wearing wedding rings, a bouquet, etc, all of them form part of the traditions that come with marriage. Do you see what I mean? You just take them as part of that special day but they all started long time ago. While some of them have an uncertain beginning they have endured through time and are as rich and present today as they were centuries ago.

Some other traditions are specific to a region or culture.
The truth is there's a wide variety and not everything has been written in stone.

For example , most of us may find impossible to enter the church with the groom, but for the Greeks, this is part of their ritual.
Some cultures celebrate for days in preparation for the festivities, while others celebrate for days after the union.

There's a tradition favorite for everyone.
You can even start your own. In my case, for example I was the first sibling to get married, and I wore a crystal and pearl tiara. Now that tiara is passed along within the family weddings and I am keeping it so one day maybe my kids or nieces will wear it.

This tradition was not planned, it just happened naturally and now forms part of our family customs.

But as I mention before, there's something for everyone.
So read about the different customs, find one and make it your own!
