Guest post by

Have you wondered why women wear a veil while walking down the aisle or how the rhyme about something blue started? Many of the wedding rituals practiced today have origins that can be traced back to ancient times. Even though some of these customs have been long forgotten and many may seem peculiar, here are 21 from around that world including ones you may be familiar with and how they started.

From pinching the bride and dressing in drag, to having your wedding on a specific day of the week, we hope you enjoy these wedding traditions. Feel free to leave a comment below with your favorite and also share it with someone who is about to celebrate their big day.
