It's Wedding Week!

Wedding week has arrived! I will be getting married in just 4 days--can you believe it?? The planning process has flown by and I've loved every minute of it. I thought this week we could talk about points of etiquette and tradition as they relate to weddings. I'm also planning some scheduled posts for Friday and next week while I'm honeymooning, so if you have any questions you'd like answered or things you'd like me to discuss, feel free to email me

For today, here's an interesting story on the origin of carrying the bride over the threshold from

"The ancient Romans started it: the bride had to show that she was not at all crazy about leaving her father's home, and so was dragged over the threshold to her groom's house. Ancients also believed that evil spirits, in a last-ditch effort to curse the couple, hovered at the threshold of their new home, so the bride had to be lifted to ensure that the spirits couldn't enter her body through the soles of her feet. These days, it's just fun!"
