Wedding Traditions from Amazing Alterations: Giving Away the Bride

Western Wedding Traditions and How Amazing Alterations in Minneapolis Can Play a Role in Your Wedding

The tradition of the father giving away his daughter at the wedding originates from the days of arranged marriages. In those times, daughters were considered the property of their father and were usually given for a price. Today, the tradition is a symbol of the father’s blessing of the marriage. The giving away of the bride can also be done by a mother, grandparent, or whomever the bride is closest to.

The wedding will be just as big of a day for the parents as it will for the bride and groom; at Amazing Alterations, we will make sure the one giving the bride away feels comfortable in their attire so he or she can be comfortable in their duty.
