Sydney weddings are very special occasions that ideally are only suppose to occur once in a bride's life, therefore Sydney weddings are a very important day in a bride's life. The bride and groom are suppose to be happy and live together forever with a perfect marriage. As divorce statistics show though, this is not always the case. However, no bride who walks down the aisle is thinking she is going to get divorced. Every bride is hoping that she is not going to become one of those statistics. Often times this makes brides become very superstitious and believe that there are certain traditions and procedures that can make or break their marriage. For some brides, following these traditions is very important to ensure success for their Sydney weddings and marriages.
Sydney weddings are full of traditions. One of them is for guests to hang satin horsehoes on ribbons. Then during the wedding ceremony, the guests put the ribbons on the brides wrist as she walks back down the aisle with her new husband after being married. It is thought that this will bring good luck to the marriage and to the bride and groom as well.
Another tradition in Sydney weddings is the reading of telegrams, notes, and emails by the best man at the reception. Ideally these come from those guests who could not attend the wedding Nsw, but now days, the best man often fabricates amusing messages from friends and relatives for entertainment value.
It is often times tradition for a couple to receive a Bible as their wedding Nsw gift, especially if they come from a very religious background. The Bible is given as a gift to be kept and cherished and later passed on to future generations.
There's also tradition regarding the new last name of the bride. Tradition states that should the bride practice writing her new last name before her wedding, she will bring bad luck to the marriage and to her husband because it is believed she is tempting fate. It's also thought to be unlucky for a bride to marry someone whose last name starts with the same letter as her own last name.
Some traditions no longer carry any weight but are still well known. Back when marriage proposals were more formal involving parents of the bride and groom, the prospective man would send one of his family members or friends to ask permission of the bride's parents. It was thought that if this person saw a blind man, a pregnant women or a monk then the marriage was going to be doomed. However, seeing a pig, wolf or goat along the way was thought to be a good sign.
While many brides buy into some of these traditions and the superstitions they claim, others seem them as old wives' tales. It is important to keep in mind the most important part of your Sydney weddings and the traditions you observe during the ceremony are what you're comfortable doing. Don't do traditions you don't want to do or you think are stupid. Sydney weddings are not the prison.
Think about what you want for your Sydney weddings, and do only what you want. Remember that most marriages survive or fail because of what each person puts into it, not what rituals they followed during their wedding ceremony.
