Where did the ring bearer come from?

Wedding season is on a full swing. Couples are busy planning their weddings and incorporating all the possible traditional elements to make it eventful. While we talk about traditions the first thing that pops in the head is “Something old something new something borrowed and something blue”, we might forget another very important and relevant tradition of a page boy carrying the “ring bearer” which is included without much thought to the history behind the custom.

So did you ever wonder: Where this term come from? How did this become a tradition and probably the history behind it?

We decided to take this upon ourselves and let you know. After much researching, we came to know that there is no proof where this tradition has originated from. Some sources say that this was born in Ancient Egypt where it was customary for treasured jewels to be carried on ornamental pillows during wedding ceremonies so others say that this came about during medieval times when the Northern Europeans started to charm their brides-to-be by presenting the ring on the tip of a sword. During some periods of history, rings were thought to be pagan and therefore they were not used to establish marriages whereas in other eras the mere absence of a ring exchange in a wedding ceremony was considered to be bad luck for the couple.

A ring bearer has always been carried to the alter by a page boy who is of the age 4 to 10 , way back page boys used to be servants who originally carried the bride’s train and a prayer book along side with the rings. The tradition has continued into modern times. The pillow signified wealth and good fortune for the couple. The rings were tied onto the pillow for the page boy to deliver to the altar for exchange. Back then, they used to wear a white lace collar and sash but with time that trend is done and dusted. Today a page boy sports a dapper tuxedo just like the groomsmen and the groom.

The wedding ring symbolizes the new bond between the couple, the commitment to each other and trust. They are the most precious gift that the couple exchange on the day of their wedding and make a promise of a lifetime so it is only fair that rings are treated with care. Hence the “Ring Bearer” serves the purpose!

Days before your big day – 4 things a bride must do!

Source blog

After getting engaged if there is one thing that haunts every bride to be day and night, it is the thought of looking and feeling perfect on her big day. Her dream of being the Cinderella in a castle dancing with her Prince with her perfect smile, flawless skin, long and luscious hair. Sighh… well it’s natural to feel that way but are you planning to do anything about it or just dream about it? We hope not. That is why we are here to help you. This article will tell you the what are the things you should be doing weeks before your big day. .

  • Skin care – Let’s face it. A bride is all about being beautiful inside out and having a flawless skin is a must. Even though cosmetic inventions have taken quite a bunch of load off our shoulders, if you take care of your skin, you will have that extra glow making you look radiant. We would suggest start the treatment at least a month before your big day. Try out home remedy and go for a facial at least a week before the wedding. Go and see a dermatologist if you are suffering pigmentation and other skin conditions.
  • Stay fit – We advice this not only so that you can look great and fit into your wedding dress but also so that you have a healthy life. Involve yourself in some kind of sports activity and if you have access to the gym then spend sometime in the treadmill. It is not only good for toning up your body but also for a good cardiovascular conditioning.
  • Eat healthy – One of the key factors to be taken into consideration as what you eat will not only affect your body but also your skin and hair. So make sure you are eating appropriate and on time. Not to forget, drinking lots of water will help.
  • Manicure and pedicure – Manicure because he will be putting a ring on it (wink) and pedicure because… well just because you do not want an un-kept feet and you may be wearing an open toe shoes.

So while you are dealing with the jitters in the stomach and occasional mood swings, make sure that you take good care of yourself and yes take good sleep as well because we all want to see brides happy and beautiful.

Throwing a perfect bachelorette party for your friend – Yes we understand you want to make it perfect for your friend and also prove that you are her BFF but do not let this feeling overwhelm you. A bachelorette party does not have to be extravagant and expensive. All you need is a private place, few good friends, music, food and some drinks and rest will happen.

Your bridesmaid dress and your expectation – It’s human to expect more than one should. It is quite normal for a girl to keep her hopes high when it comes to her bridesmaid dress. After all, she will be the third person who will get the attention after the bride and the groom and she would want to look perfect to be able to handle that rite?

Fear of tripping and falling – Well, we’d be lying if we say that it won’t happen. No one knows the next second of life so even if that happens stand up again, laugh along with the people who you catch laughing at you and carry on. The best thing to do is to keep the front length of your dress short enough for you to be able to move you feet freely.

Fear of raising the toast – So what you are not a natural speech giver, you do not have to talk to dozens of people present at the venue. You only have to talk to one person. So focus on her and let the audience listen. – So what you are not a natural speech giver, you do not have to talk to dozens of people present at the venue. You only have to talk to one person.

Four fast fixes to wedding day wardrobe disasters that brides freak out about

Blog Source

So it’s your wedding day. You are getting butterflies in your stomach. You are excited and nervous at the same time. You are hungry but do not feel like eating, you want to laugh and cry at the same time. You are losing patience and looking zonked for no apparent reason. We understand. It’s your big day and you want everything to be perfect including your man.

Well, we do not want to be a party pooper but it’s only fair for someone to give you a heads up. When the final countdown begins, the bride goes on cloud nine and nothing can destroy that faster than a wardrobe malfunction. Here we have described commonly found malfunctions that brides face and how to quickly fix them.

 

Malfunction no 1 – Zipper getting stuck : One of the most commonly occurring problems on wedding days. While we understand that you get over excited to put on your wedding dress, please make sure that you handle the zipper delicately. Make sure to check you’re not accidently dragging any fabric in it while zipping. Always keep a wax stick or a desi candle with you to apply on the zipper in such situations as it will smoothen the movement. And worst comes to worst – If the zipper breaks down, your safety pins or needle and thread will come in handy.

Malfunction no 2 – Staining your white dress disaster : The last thing you want to see is one small spot on your wedding gown. So if you happen to spill some red wine on your dress, pour some white wine on top, it will pull out the stain. If you are too scared to try this new technique then keep a white chalk handy and cover the stain with the chalk dust. This would help even if you spill things like tea or coffee on your dress.

Malfunction no 3 – Lint problem : You are about to walk the aisle and you find lints and your cat fur all over the train of your dress (God help your love for animals). Keep a lint roller handy and roll it over your dress twice or three times.

Malfunction no 4 – Heel fix : Nothing can be more embarrassing for a bride than trip over broken heels rite before she walks towards her man. For avoiding such situation or to fix such situation a quick fix glue would be a great idea. While you cannot stop a wedding, you can definitely get another pair of shoes while the ceremony is going on and change later. How about that ha?

So what we are trying to suggest here is that – While planning a perfect wedding is very much achievable, unseen disasters are also likely to happen. So it is always advisable to stay well equipped and hey , you do not need much to do that you know .

All you need is a candle stick, bottle of white wine, a white chalk stick, lint roller and a quick fix glue.
