What is the tradition for having bridesmaids?

Related to Ceremony

Bridesmaids were traditionally believed to be decoys, protecting the bride as she made her way down the aisle. Any lurking spirits were expected to take the bridesmaids first, believing them to be the bride. As the bridesmaids were taken away, the bride was free to make her way happily to wedded bliss.

What should I do if I am having second thoughts about getting married?

Related to Relationships

It is common for brides (and grooms) to feel nervous or anxious prior to their wedding ceremony. In many cases the feeling of 'wanting to run away' dissipates after the ceremony. However, my best advice would be to seek the opinion of a Marriage or Relationship Counsellor.
