Lovely Wedding Bridesmaid Gifts

Dec 15, 2007
The term bridesmaid refers to the retinue of young woman who attends to he bride during or after a wedding ceremony or marriage. Traditionally, brides maid were chosen from unwed young woman of marriageable age.

During early Roman times, bridesmaids formed a kind of bridal infantry as they accompanied the bride to the groom's village. This "protective shield" of similarly outfitted bridesmaids was supposed to scare off any robbers or vengeful suitors tried to hurt the bride or steal the dowry.The Western bridesmaid tradition seems to have originated from later Roman law, which required ten witnesses at a wedding in order to outsmart evil spirits believed to attend marriage ceremonies.

The bridesmaids and ushers were dressed in identical clothing to the bride and groom, so that the evil spirits would not know who was getting married.Even as late as 19th century England, the belief that ill-wishers could administer curses and taint the wedding still existed.

In Victorian wedding photographs, for example, the bride and groom can look very similar to other members of the bridal party!In modern times, bridesmaid are chosen by the bride herself. And they are generally close friends or sisters. Meant to take care of every possible need that the bride might have to confront in her run up to the wedding ceremony and after, and to aid her in other ways, which lay man cannot be allowed to do, they are people who have been taken into confidence.And undoubtedly, they deserve befitting bridesmaid gifts, both for their traditional significance and their modern utility.
