Toy boats! [Aug. 31st, 2005|02:44 pm]

Since water symbolized purity, it was not uncommon in Medieval Europe for wedding ceremonies to take place in a bath. Up to a dozen people would stand half-submerged in a large tub, and food was served on toy boats.

I totally think it would be awesome. I love unconventional weddings.

Aww! I was considering that once upon a time. I did not go that route in the end, though. Were you present for the birth?

Hmm... Now, that's something to consider when I get married ;)

What fun it'll be... Have everyone wearing dress clothes from the waist up, and swimming stuff waist down :p

Hehe, somethin' to think about

This says Medieval Europe, so it's not real clear on what country in Europe this is referring too.

And I don't know if being submerged half way would be considered bathing or not. I don't imagine they used any form of soup...

And honestly, I think it's pretty to be marreid like that. :)
