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 don't know...that's up to my new hubby. We already own a house together and have been living together for over 2 years so it may be pointless.

    Well would he carry me to the hotel room? Or would he carry me into our house? But we've been living together already...

    I like this idea, but we currently live with his brother, saving for our own place. Maybe when we eventually buy our own house

    Haha keeping. I love it when he carries me around (which does not happen very often) so I've informed him that this is a must
