A Brief (But Funny) History About Bridesmaids

According to Wikipedia, the tradition of brides having bridesmaids in weddings was borrowed from the ancient Romans. At the time, it was believed that evil spirits used to attend weddings with the purpose of disrupting the event.

And so, the Romans believed that if ten women were dressed similar to the bride on the wedding day, the evil spirits would not know which of them the bride was.

Today’s brides love the glam and sparkle that bridesmaids and maids of honours add to their weddings, and have defined other useful duties for bridesmaids and maids of honour.
