Did you ever wonder how all the wedding traditions were started?
The ceremonial bouquet toss originated in medieval Europe! Single women would chase the bride and rip pieces off her dress to take home as a bit of bridal luck. Over the years, brides began to toss the bouquet as a distraction. Hands off the dress!
The tradition of the white bridal gown was started by Queen Victoria who decided on white rather than the usual royal tradition of wearing silver. White also is said to symbolize purity and virginity.
