Do you consider yourself a modern bride?

You still probably plan on doing some of Distractify‘s “outdated” wedding traditions:

Giving away the bride  This comes from the days when women were considered their father’s property until they got married and then became their husband’s property.  The bride was literally “given away” in exchange for a payment, or dowry.

Not seeing each other before the wedding  This tradition dates back to the time of arranged marriages where it was thought that if couples saw each other before the wedding, they might bail.

Wearing a veil  People in ancient Rome believed evil spirits would be attracted to the bride, so they covered her face with a veil to help hide her and confuse them.

Sitting on the bride or groom’s “side” for the ceremony  In traditional Christian weddings, the bride’s family sits on the left, the groom’s sits on the right.

What wedding traditions did you (or will YOU) hold onto?
