Did You Know?
Traditionally, the date of a Hindu wedding was chosen using astrological calculations. Many modern Indian couples still follow this beguilling ancient tradition. In ancient Rome, bridesmaids (and groomsmen) were included in the wedding party to act as decoys. They would dress like the bride and groom in the hope of confusing evil spirits who may wish the couple ill health and unhappiness.Ever wondered why the bride and groom's families sit on opposite sides at a wedding ceremony? Because, in days when marriages were arranged to unite warring houses, families had to be separated to avoid potential bloodshed!
