Something that we feel should be celebrated more often is the diversity and joy that comes from the range of wedding traditions from all around the world. Each nation has different customs, and here at wedding wish lanterns, in our new blog series, we’ll be exploring and finding out about some of them, and sharing what we discover with you. So, to begin with, we look at some of the traditions that have long been observed in Britain:
- Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue are what the bride often desires to have on her person on her big day. Each object represents a different aspect of their marriage, such as fidelity, keeping old friends close and a happy and prosperous future.
- The age-old tradition of wearing white to symbolise innocence and maidenhood is still mostly complied with, more so than any other custom.
- Marrying a man with a surname that began with the same letter as the bride’s maiden name was once thought to be bad luck, as was practicing her new name by writing it before the big day; this was thought to be tempting fate.
However traditional your wedding is to be, wedding wish lanterns will bring something special to the end of your reception, and give you and your guests the chance to experience a wonderfully serene and magical moment.
