You have been engaged for months, you've made it thru planning the event, the clothes, the reception, the honeymoon, and you have not snuffed out one another yet.
You both have been waiting and planning for a considerable time so as to make this day go off without a hitch. Just remember that things NEVER go as planned, so expect the sudden and do not get too worked up about it. It's the unforeseen events which make the best stories for several years to come. If you get a run in your pantyhose, they are going to be on call to run to the store.
In traditional times, brides were believed to be especially exposed to malevolent spirits, so in order to give protection to the bride, her pals were luxuriously wearing costumes like the bride's and acted as decoys to confuse the malignant spirits.
It was once common for the bride-to-be and groom together with their buddies, to stroll to the church on the morning of the marriage.
Today, the function of the bridesmaid is to be a support to the bride as well as her supporter and pal. The groom-to-be would bring along his 'best men ' to help fight off indignant family members or from competing suitors. As there stayed a threat of the bride's family making an attempt to forcibly gain her return, the best man stayed by the groom's side across the wedding rite, safeguarding the bride and bridegroom from any threats.
It is said to bring good fortune to the groom if the best man prepares for the groom to carry a good luck charm in his pocket on his big day. It's also considered good luck for the best man to pay the officiant's charge in a peculiar sum. Having lots of rest is critical before the hours of socializing you will be doing today.
