Cute Wedding Gowns
Unfortunately, women were not regarded as an important element of the society and I believe that is not necessary to detail this idea, their main occupation was the household and raising children. The marriage as an institution has started long before Christianity and it was based, as I said above, on the social interests, economic, political, etc. As a proof, the woman was more like an object change for wealth or dowry. If the girl belonged to a wealthy family or she had a high social status, she was getting married only with a man on the same social stage or even higher, but never with a commoner man.
However, in the ancient Rome, marriage customs were beautiful. There were games that supported the couple relation, for example every year organize a raffle in the city center so that in a big container, all girls put tickets with their names and boys were extracting a name and the girl whose ticket was extracted, stocked together with that boy for an year.
In the hardest times, when the plague destroyed many families leaving children with only one parent, polygamy was accepted. Thus, the uncle was getting married with the widow of his brother to ensure the children rising.
In other times, marriages were made in secret (just because of the emotional involvement of the two lovers) even without witnesses need. Because these secret marriages grew, the Concil of Trent ordered that no marriage can be made anymore without a priest and two witnesses.
Since then, the wedding started to head the current importance, the traditions were gradually taken over from one nation to another, and habits of wearing something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and the wedding dress color to be white as a symbol of purity and virginity. During the renaissance, marriages were preceded by a religious training, like an initiation into the mysteries of the couple relationships.
Nowadays, marriage has gained more freedom and it is made between people of different ages, social status and religious affiliation, but they are still a lot of marriages motivated by the financial interests. Some cute wedding gowns have been presented but be sure you will wear something old also, as I said above, the tradition says we should have at our wedding something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue . If you choose a white wedding dress you can have the “something blue” thing, under it (garter).
