YOUNG COUPLE

YOUNG COUPLE

Bride. The outfit of the bride and groom depends on this, how solemn the wedding and the party itself are to be. In fact, the bride chooses the white one, a long dress and a traditional veil (this tradition is not that long, as you might think). It is a symbol of her purity (just like the garland). During the ancien regime, French women got married in colorful dresses. Long or short, from cheaper or valuable fabrics, modern or romantic, the dress must be modest, no deep, provocative necklines, it must also lie well, do not crush and do not restrict movement. It is customary to hide her from the groom until the last moment.

Groom. If the bride decides to wear a long dress, the groom must be dressed appropriately – in a light gray or dark jacket (swallow), dark vest, a do tego – a plain white shirt or a tailcoat, (sometimes) cylinder, gray gloves, black shoes and socks. It can also be worn in a tailcoat, but not in a tuxedo. (There are wedding dress rentals.) If the bride is wearing a short and simple dress, the groom puts on a dark suit, white shirt and silk tie. An officer always wears a gala uniform.

Wedding rings, jewellery. The bride does not wear jewelry, except for the engagement ring – in Poland on the left hand, so as not to hinder the insertion of the wedding ring. (Let's add, that in most European countries the wedding ring is worn on the left hand, so the ring is put on the right hand during the ceremony. In Poland, the opposite is true. Before the ceremony, the groom brings a wedding bouquet, in Poland – stored or thrown among the brides during the wedding, in France – placed on the altar in front of a painting or statue of the Virgin Mary).
