Why American Wedding Traditions Standout Among Others?

To answer the question, the American wedding tradition is greatly popularized by Hollywood movies. Because of the popularity of these movies, most couples look for wedding inspiration base on American weddings.

So, what are some customs that are being followed?

Carry the Bride

Have you ever heard about ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue’? For an American wedding, it is customary to let the bride wear or carry which will fit each one of the categories and according to the tradition, it will bring them good luck. While sometimes it will become a bit hilarious, it is certainly one of the most interesting parts of their traditions.

Each of the categories signifies a meaning. For something old, it means about the family or friends on the wedding, while something new signifies the couple, and something borrowed signifies borrowed happiness for this customs; it is ideal to borrow from someone who has a successful marriage, lastly, something blue signifies the purity and love of the couple.

Carry a Bouquet of Flowers

The bridal bouquet- every bride loves to carry a bouquet of flowers during their wedding. The significance of bringing flowers of the bride is probably not very known, thus the brides tend to choose flowers base on its meaning, but the real significance of these flowers is that… according to ancient tradition,

“The fragrance of flower tend to scare away evil spirits that may possess the couple, so during the marriage ceremony, most of the decorations are flowers and thus the more fragrant the flowers are, the more it will bring good luck.”

Ring in The Marriage Ceremony

The ring- it’s not about the famous Asian horror movie, its bout the significance of the ring in the marriage ceremony. Exchanging of rings during the ceremony is vital, it means loyalty, purity of love, or a symbol of attachment to your partner. But why is it in the fourth finger? It is said that the veins connected to the fourth finger are directly connected to the bearer’s heart. So, it does make sense right? But some also say that it was only capitalized by the jewelers during the 19th century.

Best Man and Groomsmen Are Rather Ornamental

Best man and groomsmen- as of today, best man and groomsmen are rather ornamental which is very important when playing wedding games. But according to history, best men and groomsmen have a very important role in the marriage ceremony, they are the ones responsible for abducting the bride or escorting the bride to reach the ceremony especially if there are parties that are not in favor of the marriage. They also are the ones who are responsible for the security of the wedding ceremony.

Beautiful Bridesmaid

Yes you read it right, a beautiful bridesmaid. Bridesmaid- most might probably think that they are just like groomsmen, an ornamental part of the wedding, but according to tradition, they have a specific role which is to confuse the evil spirit as to who might possess the bride.

6. Breaking a wine glass- many married couples don’t follow this tradition because it wasn’t always shown on any movie, but it is a part of the American wedding tradition where is symbolizes the fragility of the relationship and it must be preserve.

Fertility Rice

Throwing rice- has been known as a symbol of fertility and prosperity for the newlyweds. But before it became rice, ancient Romans threw meat or wheat to the newlyweds with the same meaning, but after the rice has become the symbol of fertility they adapted to it.

Tossing a Sexy Garter

Tossing a garter- this part is probably one of the humorous parts of the ceremony the same as the toss of the bouquet, where the groom would retrieve a garter that has been worn by his wife and throws it to the eligible bachelors. The history of it is that before it is known that having a piece of garment from the bride would bring good luck. So the guest would rush to the newlyweds to rip a part of the dress for them to have a stroke of good luck. To prevent hurting the bride during the process, they thought that throwing something would pacify the guess from ripping a part of the dress.

Tossing Bouquet to Single and Available Ladies

Tossing of the bouquet- the same as tossing a garter, before women will also try to rip a piece of the garment so to pacify that, the bride will toss her bouquet and the runaway and whoever catches the bouquet will like to be the one who will be married next.

The Last Dance of Being Single

The three main dances- newlywed dance is probably one of the most anticipated parts of the ceremony, some tend to have proper choreograph steps while some choose to have a slow and romantic dance. The first dance is between the newlyweds, the next is between the parents of the newlyweds. After the three main dances, the DJ will tend to call the other guest to join the festivities. The significance of the dances in the ceremony is that the couples must have proper synchronization in order for their relationship to be successful.

First Day of Drinking Wine as a Married Person

Wedding toast- typically toast means to honor something, but for a wedding toast, it means to wish the newlywed to have a piece of good luck throughout many years. But beware, there are kinds of beverages that are must not be used during the toast and would be considered an insult to the newlyweds. Nevertheless, these beverages are probably not present at the wedding except for water.

Clinking of Glass Permission to Kiss

The clinking of glass- after the toast, the guest would be clicking each other’s glass or any silverware to entice the newlyweds to kiss. But the true meaning of this according to ancient Christians is that clinking glass will tend to scare away bad spirits.

Slicing The Womanhood

Slicing the cake- traditionally, only the wife will be the one to cut the cake, since it symbolizes the first act of the couple which is the loss of the virginity of the bride. But as time evolves, the couple will now cut the cake together.

After cutting the cake, the newlywed will try to eat the cake together which also symbolized the commitment to provide for one another.

Make sure your are slicing your cake the right way.

Bridal Shower

Bridal Shower- usually a party to be held by the bride before the wedding day with the purpose to give present to the bride just before her big day.

Though is not really known, there is a good story behind it.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to wedding ceremonies, there is a lot that a couple can choose. You need to know that weddings are not complete without ceremonies, to some people the ceremony is not just a formality, but the main agenda. The majority of the couples out there are not open-minded, and they only know religious and civil weddings.

For those getting ready to settle down, they need to understand that marriage is a rite of passage that requires a lot of respect and commitment. You can have the wedding ceremony that you have always wished for only when your option suits your needs. In this article, we will cover the five different types of wedding ceremonies.

Religious Wedding Ceremonies

Wedding Ceremonies

Religious weddings are entirely based on the religion of the couple. The event focuses on uniting the couple together to be partners while strictly following the beliefs and traditions that the particular religion sticks to. For instance, if it is in your local church, the evangelist or any other church leader mandated to carry out the wedding ensures that they follow the church traditions and set rules.

A tradition in the Christian wedding is where the parent walks the bride down the aisle and gives them to the groom. Religion is widespread, with different people sticking to what they feel comfortable with. Religious weddings include Muslim, Catholic, Hindu, Jewish, and Christian weddings. In each of them, the ceremonies showcase varying elements. The readings, hymns and sermon ministers are also selected differently.

The most important aspect of all religions is the act of exchanging the rings and marriage vows between the couple. Also, there is a celebration that follows. Whether it includes the majority or a few people, every religion value celebrating these moments.

Civil Wedding Ceremonies

Wedding Ceremonies

Civil weddings are non-religious. For quite some time now, many wedding couples and wedding planners are appreciating civil weddings. Before you get into this type of ceremony, you need to know that you don’t have to be non-religious to have a civil union, everybody is entitled provided the couple agrees.

In the civil ceremony, the clerks, judges, registrar or any other public official in charge of civil marriages presides over the wedding. The occasion can occur at the courthouse, local registry or any other place recognized by the civil marriage law. However, the majority will still choose an alternative place away from the courthouse.

Before heading to the officials, the couple will have agreed that they are ready to settle down. Also, unlike the religious wedding, civil involves little preparation and expenses. A major advantage that people enjoy here is that they can personalize their wedding. The procedure to take, readings, music, and wedding vows get manipulated based on the couple’s needs.

Interfaith Wedding Ceremonies

Wedding Ceremonies

Well, this might be confusing, but it is a wedding ceremony choice worth considering. In the current world, intermarriage among people of different faith seems to be increasing steadily. Thanks to the widespread interaction. If you’ve had a chance as a wedding planner to organize these weddings, you can bear with me that they are most interesting of all.

Interfaith ceremonies involve people with varying religious backgrounds. With varying religious background, it means that either couple is strict with their religion but they both do not share a common religion. The wedding ceremonies aim to bond the union and receive blessings from parents and friends.

In the ceremonies, personalization takes center stage any anything the couple wants is included. The legal team presides the marriage in a small celebration. However, couples are free to take any approach they feel comfortable on provided their desires are met.

Humanist Wedding Ceremonies

Wedding Ceremonies

Humanist ceremonies are now common in every corner of the United States, and their popularity is on the rise. Humanists are individuals who entirely do not obey religious codes. Instead, they believe that humans can be good and love each other without involving religion. Every human is expected to follow the moral codes that society sets.

The non-religious wedding involves extreme personalization. The couple meets the wedding planner and explains what they need on their special day. These weddings are very humorous because you will realize that the couple vows, reading, and symbols are what they prefer.

During the ceremony, the humanist celebrant officiates the marriage. These officials are highly trained, and they enable you to have a memorable day. For some individuals, they will prefer to have a civil wedding but stick to the humanist celebrations. Others want a celebration just with friends and family without the need for legal documentation.

Same Sex Wedding Ceremonies

Wedding Ceremonies

Same-sex marriage involves two people of same sex and gender. In these weddings, the couple sets a day and visits the registry for civil legal partnership. Although the marriage of people with the same gender is believed to have started in the first century, its legal recognition here in the US started at the beginning of the 21st century.

The ceremonies get officiated by a celebrant or civil attendant, and the celebrations follow after that. Those marrying and are not religious, will usually personalize their wedding to suit their dream specifications. With the LGBT churches, the couple is also free to enter into a union through a religious-based ceremony. The best thing you can do when planning to have a wedding is being able to appreciate the many types of wedding ceremonies available.  When you are ready for the wedding, there is always an option for you. Talk to your partner and then your wedding planner and ensure you agree on the way forward.

Staying in a marriage for a decade deserves a celebration. For the first few years of your marriage, you probably deserve to celebrate as a couple, but once you reach the decade mark, it is necessary to celebrate with your friends and family.
