Fun Wedding Fact Friday-Rain on Your Wedding Day

Rain as a symbol of good luck on your day is a tale as old as time. Why exactly is it good luck? Well, it has a little something to do with the old age phrase of “tying the Knot”.

Tying the knot comes from the handfasting ceremony, a practice that binds couples together by tying knots of cloth around their hands. This ceremony represents two becoming one.

Handfasting ceremonies originated in Scotland. This ancient Celtic practice dates back to the medieval era, but over time, handfasting became part of the engagement period. It was a ritual used to strengthen the bond of the soon-to-be-wedded couple before the official ceremony.

Because a wet knot is harder to untie than a dry one, rain on your wedding day is a sign of good things ahead.
