Fantasy & Nerdy Magical Enchanted Forest Wedding

Wedding jewellery has traditionally been used to demonstrate
the value of the bride’s dowry.

The bride-wain, the wagon in which the bride was driven to her new home, gave its name to the weddings of any poor deserving couple, who drove a « wain » round the village, collecting small sums of money or articles of furniture towards their housekeeping. These were called bidding-weddings, or bid-ales, which were in the nature of « benefit » feasts. So general is still the custom of « bidding-weddings » in Wales, that printers usually keep the form of invitation in type. Sometimes as many as six hundred couples will walk in the bridal procession.
