Bridal is a word with ancient origins. In Middle English, it is a half-word, meaning ‘bride,’ and is often combined with other words. “Bride-bell” and ‘bride-banquet’ are examples of words with this meaning. They are both derived from the Old English bride-ale, meaning ‘bride-alley’, and have evolved into a more general descriptive adjective. The word was first used as a noun, and by the 18th century, it had become an adjective.
Brides-to-be may be present at a bridal shower, so a game called “The Newlywed Game” may be fun to play. It can reveal the weakest parts of a new couple’s relationship. While not the traditional bridal shower game, this game is sure to keep the party festive. If the groom-to-be is attending the bridal shower, he may be present as well. In such a case, a card with a romantic message from the groom-to-be may be in order.
A bridal ring is traditionally carried by the ring bearer. Traditionally, the ring bearer is a young boy. The ring bearer carries the wedding rings on a satin pillow, and the best man and maid of honor then remove them. Ring bearer attire is paid for by the bride’s parents. The father also arranges transportation for the ring bearer, as he is the only male participant who carries a ring.
Throughout the African continent, traditional tribal wedding garb is still common. The Ndebele people in South Africa wear distinctive ringed jewelry and a beaded train called Nyoga, which means snake. In urban areas, however, Western style weddings are more common, and include a white dress with matching tuxes. But the bride can also choose to wear a white cover for her disposable diapers. There are options available for both styles.
A bridal portrait is a great way to get to know your photographer before the wedding. You’ll be working with the same person for many pictures on the wedding day, and getting to know your photographer before the big day will make the experience run smoothly. This will also allow the bride to convey her vision and get a feel for his or her style. While a wedding photographer can’t replace a personal relationship, having a bridal portrait with the photographer will help the entire process go smoothly.
There is a long history behind the concept of bridal party. A medieval wedding would have been unusual if it were not for the bride’s dress and jewelry. Even more medieval weddings would not have bridal party members wearing the same attire. The industrial revolution and Queen Victoria paved the way for wedding photography to evolve into the modern-day style we know today. Fortunately, this tradition survived to this day. Whether your wedding is Victorian-themed, a flower girl is the perfect accessory for your big day.
