A Brief History Of Weddings (INFOGRAPHIC)

Weddings are generally considered the obvious step for couples who want to unite their lives officially. This usually means the beginning of a new life for the newlyweds.

Many of us will marry at least once in their life, in fact, most of us don’t really think of the way this important ceremony became what it is today.

Well, the jewelry design company Moissanite, developed this very appropriate infographic about the customs surrounding the “Big Day”.

Filled with facts that most people don’t know, this handy infographic could be interesting for couples who are already married or planning to “tie the knot”.

Actually, did you know that historians believe the first weddings occurred about 4,350 years ago? Or that the first recorded wedding bands exchange happened over 2,800 years BCE (Before the Common Era) in Egypt?

With an average of  7,000 marriages each day in the U.S., it is safe to say that weddings are still popular. And knowing a little bit more about history is never a bad thing. So enjoy this infographic below and I hope you will learn something new about the history of weddings.
