Wedding Dress Back Detail

Once a precaution against evil spirits or family demons (which seem to have been a common concern in ages past), the groom carrying his bride across the threshold of their new home was thought to protect the new lady of the house from harm.

Going back even further and the tradition came from a time when brides were literally carried, kicking and screaming, across the threshold having been forced to tie the knot without their consent.

Fortunately today it's just a bit of fun when it happens, as well as a test of the groom's strength!
