Marriage Traditions

There are many wedding traditions; from the white dress to the honeymoon. Some fun wedding traditions that I found to share with you:
Jumping the Broom
This tradition is said to have originated with an African ritual in which a broom is used to demonstrate that all past problems have been swept away.
Tying the Knot
In some African tribes, the bride and groom have their wrists tied together with cloth or braided grass to represent their marriage.
Tying Tin Cans to the Back of the Marriage Car
Historically this was done to scare away evil spirits so the bride and groom could get a clean start at life together. Over time the wedding party had fun tying empty tin cans and tin buckets to the get-away-car so it would make tons of noise and everyone in town would look. Of course there is always the attached “Just Married” sign to be sure that everyone gets the picture!
