Even though the age of superstition, proverb and myth has (supposedly) passed as we humans head ever deeper into the world of hard facts and technology, you don’t have to look too far to see how it still features in our lives on a daily basis. From the language we speak to the clothes we wear, it’s clear that we are not ready to give up all the magic just yet…
It is during the big, life-changing and unique (yet surprisingly similar to one another) major life changes we share that our love of a more magical time is really visible. Births, deaths and the birthdays between are particularly rich with superstition and ritual, allowing us some deeper connection with our more mystical past.
And of these events, it is the wedding that really goes all out for old-time wisdom; almost everything we do at weddings, pretty much without thinking, has a fascinating history behind it (throwing rice, old/new/borrowed/blue, the wedding veil, cutting the cake… the list goes on).
There is one old saying we all use regularly yet don't always truly believe: “the best things in life are free” (sometimes also rendered as “money isn’t everything” or similar”. On the one hand, the truth of the statement is obvious and undeniable but try living without money for a couple of days and you will soon change your mind!
When it comes to weddings, the proverb is again both true and not-true. Of course, the very fact that you’re getting married would not be so if it were not for love, which is completely free of charge. But it’s nice to have some spare cash in your pocket for treats, all the same!
The average wedding budget is always on the up and even those who want a low-key, cost-friendly ceremony can end up shelling out far more than they intended even if they economise, due to increased prices across the board.
