Keep or Skip: Carrying over the Threshold?

Hello everyone! You've arrived at the last question and the end of the wedding night Smiley heart

So...

Will you be carried or carrying your spouse over the threshold? Or are you skipping this tradition?

This tradition began in medieval Europe, with the groom carrying the bride into their new home to avoid bringing evil spirits in! Apparently a bride is extra vulnerable to evil spirits through the soles of her feet Smiley surprise

    I like this tradition! We had planned to do this when we bought our house, but the day went so quick that we forgot.

    I would love to but my poor man wouldn't be able to lift me. He is much thinner than I am and although muscular it's too big of a difference.

    SKIP!! We've been living together for years now, so this wouldn't make me feel any way to skip.

    Skipping, because we may not have our own place by then.

    I have a feeling this is another one I won't have a say in I have a feeling whether I want it or not my husband will e doing it because I feel that is the "grooms thing" the part that they wait for the "you may kiss the. Bride" and the carrying her away!and I'm fine with this also I think it is very sweet!

    I think its cute, but it will likely end horribly so probably skipping. Maybe we will just settle for a piggyback instead of actually carrying me Smiley winking
