Wacky (and not so wacky) Wedding Traditions
Listen, it’s Friday if you didn’t already know, so let’s have some fun with this Friday post. And something that i’ve always found to be extremely fun, as well as interesting, are wedding superstitions and traditions. First, I feel it’s necessary to quote the great Michael Scott, “I’m not superstitious, but I am a little stitious.” Next, let’s have a look at some of the most interesting superstitions and traditions in the world of weddings.
This first one may seem like more of a fact but the only fact is that Americans tend to have a tradition of opulence and gluttony. Did you know that seventeen tons of gold are used annually, only to make wedding rings? As of 2013, one ton of gold is worth roughly $64.3 million dollars.
Now time for a tradition that many know but none the less is interesting, engagement rings are worn on the the fourth finger of the left hand because it was once believed that that finger contained a vein leading directly back to your heart. Unfortunately, for tradition, there isn’t one vein that leads from the ring finger to the heart.
