Info on marriage rituals
When a warrior wanted a bride, he would capture her from a nearby village and carry her back to his home. Once there, he would shackle her to his home so she could not return to her family.
Today, carrying the bride over the threshold is a symbol of the "capture custom", while the ring is the symbol of her shackles.
On her wedding day, a bride will do everything to make herself more beautiful. In Ancient Rome, it was feared that demons would see her beauty and steal her away, so she would wear a veil until the very last moment of the wedding ceremony.
