Some Ideas In Planning The Wedding

The actual wedding ceremony is what makes nuptials possible! It may take place in a religious facility, outdoors, or any other venue. When planning the wedding ceremony there are many things that need to be taken into consideration. Taking the time to carefully plan this will ensure that everything runs smoothly, and details can make all the difference on the actual day. Depending on the style of wedding there will be many things that need to be decided. Some of the items or tasks that may be overlooked are the wedding veil, the ring bearer pillows, and the flower girl.

The Wedding Veil

The wedding veil has been a tradition for thousands of years; it was first worn by Roman brides to protect them from evil spirits. It has been a part of Judaism from the time of the biblical patriarch Isaac. Today, wedding veils are traditionally worn by the bride until she meets the groom at the altar. After they are pronounced man and wife, the groom lifts up her veil. There are many different types of veils to choose from; from those that trail down to the floor, to ones that cover some of the face. Not all brides will cover their face and the veil exists more as an embellishment from their hair downwards along the back of their dress. Veils are available in a number of sheer fabrics like organza, tulle, chiffon and net. They can have flowers entwined in them or ribbon. While there are infinite varieties out there, what is important is that you are comfortable with the style and that it matches your gown.

The Ring Bearer Pillows

These are small satin covered pillows, often in white, that are carried by the ring bearer down the aisle to the altar. Nestled cozily on the top of the pillows are the bride and groom’s wedding rings. They tend to be heavily decorated to stand out as they progress up the aisle to the waiting couple.

The Flower Girl

The young girl who participates in your wedding procession will probably be a relative or friend from either side of the family. Her role is to precede the bride up the aisle and strew flowers on the path in anticipation of her. The flower girl’s dress should fit the style and color of your bridesmaids, albeit her dress will be age appropriate. You can choose to have her throw petals on her walk or thorn-less roses.
