YOUR WEDDINGwith ROCO
A BRIEF HISTORY AND PLANNING GUIDE FOR
The History of the tradition
Marriage has been a long standing tradition for hundreds of years, but it's not always been as we know it
today. In more barbaric times of the past, the groom would "steal" the bride and pay the father a ransom.
Thankfully that's no longer the case.
many of today's wedding traditions can be traced back to ancient customs. these were often due to
superstition and religion, for instance, the bouquet was originally made of strong herbs to frighten away evil
spirits. Nowadays these traditions are more of a fun custom to keep up, who knows, they might even work!

Not the best part of planning a
wedding, but one of the most important
- give this the attention it deserves!
Write everyone you and your partner can think of,
then decide you who really want to come. Although
brutal, the best way to cut costs is to reduce this list.
a sumptuous bit of work to get done. try
sample menus from a few different caterers
and pick whoever tingles your taste buds.
Fun fact: a honeymoon is called so because the couple used to drink mead
(honey/alcohol mix) for a moon cycle
you'll need at least three fittings. make sure you
look around. wedding fairs are great for this.
this may seem early but some bakers require a long
lead time! As with the caterers, make sure you
attend several tastings first (partly for free cake)
You should know definite numbers now, so you can
stock the bar accordingly. always order more than
you think you will need, running out isn't fun!
This will be your last week as an unmarried person.
99% of the planning headache should be out the way
so just enjoy this time and pack for your honeymoon!
You are now all ready for your big day
