The origin of the word “wedding” means to gamble or wager.
Women proposing on February 29th dates back to when the date was not recognised, so had no legal status. This 'loop hole' date was chosen by women who felt they had been 'left on the shelf' too long.
Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, Something blue. This originated from Victorian England. The bride should carry one of each on her person during her wedding to ensure future happiness and prosperity.
