Symbolism of wedding bands.

What kind of bride are you? Vintage couture, Romantic plush, or Straightforward magnificence, what ever you fall under there's a robe out there to fit your style.

Vintage gowns come in several styles from the medieval princess look, The Charleston swing age, or the Bohemian hobo girl robe. You can also take this style back to the 21st century with clean crisp straightforward white robe with a high waist and gorgeous chiffon wide bottom sleeves. The Design is looser at the waist and tighter round the hips showing lots of skin round the chest, back and arms.

Rings have been exchanged as a depiction of the bond of wedding for so long, and in such a big amount of different cultures, the origin of the practice is obscure. Definitely , the circle of a ring represents perpetual love and the continually replenished promises of the married couple. The circle also talks to the repeated round of the heavens, as well as the never-ending return of the seasons, marked by cyclical ritual and party. Additionally, the circle in rock art, holy stone arrays, and astrology represents both the Sun and the Moon, themselves astrological and alchemical symbols for the masculine and female facets of the cosmos. The widespread custom of embellishing the plain gold or silver marriage band with numerous designs and patterns has been known since at least seven hundred AD, in both Pan-Hellenic and Celtic cultures. The Demetrios collection has this style in numerous of its designs.

Some robes are delightful enough on their lonesome you could get away with wearing no veil in the slightest.
