Planning your wedding? Kfm Mornings say it's time to say goodbye to these outdated traditions.
Wearing a white wedding dress
White wedding dresses only became a trend in the 19-century after Queen Victoria wore one for her wedding to Prince Albert.
Before that, brides wore a variety of colours with red being the most popular.
Father giving the bride away
‘Who giveth this woman?’ This old-fashioned custom originates from back in the day when daughters were considered property of their fathers until their marriage was arranged. The father would 'give' the bride to her new husband on their wedding day.
Nowadays, this is seen more as a meaningful way to honour parents.
'Obey' in brides wedding vows
Back in 1981, Princess Diana made headlines when she chose to omit the 'obey' part of her wedding vows, choosing instead to "love him, comfort him, honour, and keep him, in sickness and in health."
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle both followed suit.
Today modern couples tend to skip the 'obey' promise opting to rather "love, honour and cherish," or to write their own, more personal wedding vows.
