Discovering the Folklore and Traditions of Marriage

Full Product Description

What colour should a wedding dress be? What is the origin of the wedding cake? Why do we throw confetti? What is so special about Gretna Green? Why a wedding breakfast, and is the pre-nuptial contract a new idea? In Britain today, the celebration of a marriage in the 'traditional' manner is a mixture of something old, something new and something borrowed from other traditions. "Discovering the Folklore and Traditions of Marriage" looks at the ways that marriages are celebrated in multicultural Britain and how the practices of the past are observed, and sometimes altered, for contemporary times.

Discovering the Folklore and Traditions of Marriage by George P. Monger was published by Shire Publications Ltd in April 2011. The ISBN for Discovering the Folklore and Traditions of Marriage is 9780747808190.
