The weekend is upon us and we can start winding the week down and getting ourselves ready for a couple of days off (well away from the office anyway) and I’ve got that Friday feeling!
I have ANOTHER treat in store for you today as just like last week, there will be two posts again! This isn’t usual practice here at MWD (although we are hoping to increase our posts after Christmas!) but again I couldn’t let this one pass so make sure you pop back at 3.00pm (UK time).
To start us off with though it’s our usual Friday Fun Facts & Tips and today we carry on from last week and look at the meaning and traditions behind more elements of the big day….
♥ Wedding Dress – Traditionally, brides didn’t wear white wedding dresses. Throughout the 18th century most just wore their best clothes. Blue was meant for consistancy, Red was very popular in the Middle Ages in Europe and Green signified youth. As the years passed white became much more popular and was worn as a symbol of purity.
♥ Veil – Mystery and romance has surrounded the veil for more than a thousand years. Originally, it was thought that the veil was worn to hide the bride from abductors (just as the similar dress of her bridesmaids was meant to) but a more romantic interpretation came about later concealment rendered what was hidden more valuable.
♥ Honeymoon – Early weddings comprised of a groom caputuring his bride and taking her somewhere hidden away so noone would find them. They would stay for on moon phase and would drink Mean (a wine made from honey) which would make them more more amorous – hence the word ‘Honeymoon’. They’re alot more fun these days though and last alot longer too!
Don’t forget to come back at 3.00pm (UK time) when we have a fab treat instore for you!
