Wow!!! Your best friend has been taken, she just got engaged by her lover! After the congratulatory messages, toast, and announcements on other social media, what comes to one’s mind next is: the “will you be my brides maid” conversation. it is an enormous honour.
However even in the sudden rush of intense emotion, you can’t help but think about the dress. A dress that, in all possibility,will not only be expensive,but also will look exactly the same to the dresses other bridesmaids are wearing.
Nevertheless have you ever thought of where the tradition of matching bridesmaids dresses actually came from? surprisingly this is not concerned with beauty or to make the special day look glamorous. Its origins are actually connected to chasing off demons.
Forget the reason of your best friend want to bury you and dead over a dress, and that you wear it once. According to historians this goes way back to the ancient Rome, apparently back then, the bride will also wear the same dress, and the thought process was to camouflage her. the idea was that any suitor or even evil spirit wouldn’t know who to attack if they just saw a group of people dress the same. So there you have it, you have to spend all that money because of evil spirit. Also the tradition of the groom carrying the bride across the threshold was also to protect them from demons that lived in the floor.
