A few wedding traditions have been passed on to the present generations for such a long time now, that they have become ingrained within the wedding ceremonies of today. People don’t even realize why they began in the first place. But if you research thoroughly, you might come across really interesting facts about the origins of these quintessential myths.
You must be familiar about the hugely popular myth that the grooms shouldn’t see the brides in her wedding dress before the wedding ceremonies. If he does, it brings ill luck. The origin of this myth lies in the time when arranged marriages were popular.
Two families set up the marriages of their children often as a part of a business deal. In such cases, the bride and groom weren’t allowed to see each other at all. This system was formulated so that the groom doesn’t get any chance to reject the bride before marrying.
A rejection would mean dishonour to the girl’s family and a big loss in business. This ritual of not seeing the bride before marriage has now metamorphosed into the myth of the wedding dress. Today, this has just become a fun ritual that heightens the excitement of marriage ceremonies.
