Banquets halls in miami

Did you know the expression tie the knot actually comes from an Ancient Babylonian custom where threads from the clothing of the groom and bride were tired together to symbolize a union between the couple?

Back then traditions of marriage were related much more to the concept of conception. In fact, early Roman brides carried bouquets of herbs under their veils, like rosemary and garlic, to symbolize fertility and fidelity. These precursors to the modern day bouquets also warded off evil.

Back in Ireland, the tradition for newly married couples was to tie a hen that was about to lay an egg to the wedding night bed. This was to ensure the fertility of the couple.

Of course traditions have changed a lot and weddings in general have come a long way from where they used to be and what they used to mean. Today, according to a Pew Research Report from 2010, only 51 percent of adults who are 18 or older are actually married. Back in 1960, that number was 72 percent.

Nowadays, weddings are more about the marriage, and not so much about fertility or conception. In fact, as of 2011, the average couple spends around 27,000 dollars on their wedding.

After the couple has been married for awhile, that is when it is OK to start thinking about baby shower locations. There are now party hall rentals, banquet halls in coral gables, and ballrooms in miami that would make great baby shower locations.

But do not jump too far ahead. Before you need to worry about a baby shower, you should first focus on wedding places in miami.

    I find it funny that traditionally weddings were all about making babies. People wouldn’t have even gotten married back in the day if they weren’t planning on having kids.
