The bride’s veil and bouquet are not the only wedding traditions. It also has an ancient origin, dating back to the Roman confarreatio, in which a bride ate a cake made of salt and held three wheat ears. The ceremony is a fun time for friends and family to come together to celebrate the upcoming marriage. Here are some traditions that are part of the bridal shower. This article will cover some of the most common bridal shower traditions.
The ring bearer is a traditional child or young man, who carries the wedding rings on a pillow. The best man or maid of honor holds the real wedding rings. In some families, the father of the bride and groom may even “first look” on their wedding day. On the big day, the father of the bride often walks her down the aisle, gives her away at the altar, and may participate in the father-daughter dance.
The bride’s mother usually doesn’t plan a bridal shower, but the maid of honor may plan the event. In some cases, if the guest list is too large for the bride to attend her mother’s party, a second shower may make more sense. In either case, the bride’s maid of honor will organize the event. In all cases, a bridal shower should be a joyous occasion for both the bride and her guests.
The guest list should include close friends and family. A bridal shower is typically a female-only event, though there are some occasions when a couple may choose to throw a shower for their son. If you’re throwing a shower for a couple, make sure that you invite only those who have been invited to the wedding. This way, you won’t have to worry about the gender of your guests. You’ll know the number of females and males who attend the party, and the guests will be able to RSVP.
The location of the bridal session should be outside the wedding venue. A beach or swimming pool are some of the most popular places for bridal portraits. Getting a bridal photoshoot is a great way to make sure that you have the perfect wedding photos. It takes the pressure off your wedding day. You can focus on getting ready for the ceremony, and the photos can be taken in a fun and relaxing setting. In addition, you won’t have to worry about time restrictions or nerves, which will help you relax more and look gorgeous.
The bridal party consists of people selected by the bride to assist her in her wedding. It could be as small as four people, or as large as a whole family of friends. You can have more than one flower girl. In fact, it’s not unusual to see more than one flower girl at a wedding, especially if it’s themed after a royal or Victorian event. It can be as large or as small as you want it to be, but it’s important to have a few people with you, as it will make your wedding even more memorable.
