With all the wedding traditions that surround us, it is always fun to think about how everything came about. Here are five surprising and interesting facts about weddings that you may have not known.


  1. Why is your “Ring Finger” your ring finger? As we all know, the fourth finger on the left hand is designated for engagement and wedding rings. This is so because it was actually once thought that this finger had a vein that led straight to your heart.

  2. Why do brides wear veils? Interestingly enough, brides traditionally wear veils because ancient greeks & romans believed it protected them from evil spirits.

  3. Why a wedding cake? This tradition also comes from the ancient romans as guests used to break a loaf of bread over the brides head for fertility sake.

  4. Where did the term, “tying the knot” come from? In many cultures across the globe, the hands of the bride and groom are actually tied together in order to demonstrate their new bond and the couples commitment.

  5. Traditionally flower girls would throw flower petals in the bride’s path to lead her to a plentiful future.

Next time these wedding traditions pass you by, you can now know what they mean and where they came from!
