Today is Mother's Day, a day to honor a very special person (or people, if you

involved in your wedding, in some way, shape, or form, even if it is a remembrance and celebration of her legacy (if your mom has passed, here are some ideas to remember her and others that have passed on your wedding day.)
The white wedding dress is perhaps the most symbolic part of today's wedding ceremony. Through different religions and denominations, each wedding is unique in its customs.

Many brides today spend an incredible amount of time and effort, in an attempt to make their wedding different, and as unique as possible. But every wedding has many of the same basic elements and traditions: the white dress, the best man/maid of honor, the wedding cake, etc. But where do these traditions come from? This time, we'll look at the Maid of Honor & Bridesmaid.
The Maid of Honor (or Matron of Honor if she is married) originally referred to the female attendant of a queen. Typically it is the bride's closest friend or sister. The tradition of the Maid of Honor (and Bridesmaids) is thought to have originated from Roman law, which required ten witnesses in order to outsmart evil spirits. These evil spirits were believed to be present at all marriage ceremonies. So the Bridesmaids would all dress in identical clothing to the bride and groom, so that the evil spirits would not know who was getting married.
