    I've gotten good e-mails today!

    In English tradition, Wednesday is considered the "best
    day" to marry, although Monday is for wealth and Tuesday
    is for health. Saturday is considered the unluckiest
    wedding day!


    A Swedish bride puts a silver coin from her father and a
    gold coin from her mother in each shoe to ensure that she'll
    never do without. Moroccan women take a milk bath to purify
    themselves before their wedding ceremony. For good luck,
    Egyptian women pinch the bride on her wedding day.


    Diamonds set in gold or silver became popular as betrothal
    rings among wealthy Venetians toward the end of the
    fifteenth century. Seventeen tons of gold are made into
    wedding rings each year in the United States!

    Queen Victoria started the Western world's white wedding
    dress trend in 1840 -- before then, brides simply wore their
    best dress.


    The tradition of a wedding cake comes from ancient Rome,
    where revelers broke a loaf of bread over a bride's head
    for fertility's sake.


    In many cultures around the world -- including Celtic, Hindu
    and Egyptian weddings -- the hands of a bride and groom are
    literally tied together to demonstrate the couple's commit-
    ment to each other and their new bond as a married couple
    (giving us the popular phrase "tying the knot").
