Something Old: This represents the link with the bride's family and the past – a common solution is ” for a bride to wear a piece of family jewellery or the garter of a married woman in the family. Something New: Represents good fortune and success in the bride's new life. This is usually the wedding dress. Something Borrowed: To remind the bride that friends and family will be there for her when help is needed. This might be something like a lace handkerchief or an item of jewellery. Something Blue: Symbolises faithfulness and loyalty and is thought to date back to biblical times when blue represented purity. Frequently the bride has a blue garter or a small blue ribbon sewn into the inside of her dress. A silver sixpence in her shoe: This is to wish the bride both financial wealth and happiness. Thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony, the words were lovely – not a dry eye in the house, we had a wonderful day. Richard & Wendy 20 Rings In ancient times, engagement rings served as a partial payment for the right to court a bride. The significance of the third finger of the left hand stems from the ancient Egyptian belief that the ring finger follows the 'vena amoris', the vein that leads directly to the heart. If the ring is dropped at the ceremony this is believed to shake out the evil spirits. Where to stand The bride stands on the left of the groom during the marriage ceremony to allow his sword arm to be free ready to fight off any other man who may want her for his bride. It is believed the father walks in with the bride on his right arm as nothing should stand between true love. Dress The tradition of wearing a white wedding dress gained popularity in the Victorian Age when Queen Victoria wore a beautiful white dress to marry Albert, which started a world wide trend. In some countries it is considered lucky if a bride finds a spider in her wedding dress! Wedding veil The veil is worn in order to ward off evil spirits. The time to get married The couple should exchange vows as the minute hand of the clock is upwards and 'ascending towards heaven'. Seeing the bride It is considered good luck for the groom not to see the dress before the day, and luckier still if he does not glance at the dress as the bride walks down the aisle. Confetti Rose petals or paper have replaced rice or grain in modern times, the rice was thrown to encourage fertility. Carrying the bride over the threshold This protects her from any evil spirits that may be lurking in the new home. It is also believed to bring good fortune and stops the bride from stepping into the new home left foot first which is considered to be unlucky. Throwing the bouquet The bride should throw her bouquet over her shoulder into a crowd of all unmarried ladies. Whoever catches it is said to be the next one to be married. Similarly the groom should remove the bride's garter and do the same for the single men! 21 approved PREMISES IN LANCASHIRE The following section showcases a selection of Lancashire Approved Premises for Your Perfect Day.
