Wedding traditions from around the world, world wedding traditions .
In Ancient Egypt, the first civilization known to us, was recognized and legitimized the idea of marriage. Other civilizations, marriage was considered a positive and stabilizing factor in society. The Roman Empire gave us the modern word “marriage” in the sense in which we perceive it now.
Although many wedding traditions are specific to each individual culture, but one of the components of wedding ceremonies generally remains universal: the beautiful, delicate dress of the bride.
