Wedding Tradition – The Ring Bearer

Feb 09, 2016 | Comments 0


ring bearer

Ever wondered why a tiny human carried your diamond ring down the aisle before you entered the church? Maybe it’s because no one looks cuter in a suit than a kid!

There are several theories on where the tradition started.  In the Medieval era, a young male servant had the job of holding the bride’s train when walking down the aisle and the ring was carried on the tip of a sword. Soon after, wealthy families swapped out the sword for a pillow (much safer) because pillow’s were rare and it was a symbol of good fortune! This is the tradition we are most familiar with, even though the sword tradition makes us feel very Queen like (think Game of Thrones minus all the fighting).

  As you know, we at Mojuba believe in making weddings fun and thinking outside the traditional wedding box. Don’t have a nephew, young cousin or the money in your wedding budget to rent a ring bearer(kidding)?

This little girl was the ring bearer for her mom, and she is giving us suit envy! One thing that goes hand in hand with kids at a wedding is our Mojuba Wedding Day Emergency Kit. So whatever surprises they throw at you, Mojuba has you covered.

    Wedding Tradition – Throwing Rice

    Feb 04, 2016 | Comments 0

    Throwing uncooked rice at newlyweds sounds so romantic, right? The tradition of the rice is to “shower” the new couple with prosperity, fertility, and everyone’s fav, good fortune. Rice took the backseat recently as it was rumored that if birds ate the rice it would expand in their stomach and kill them. No worries though as that is FALSE!

    Still concerned about the birds or is rice not included in your no carb diet (kidding), we say break tradition! Shower the couple with flower petals, lavender, bird seed, paper confetti, or get creative…YOLO!  If you do go the “showering” route don’t forget your Wedding Day Emergency Kit. No bride wants leftovers hanging out in her updo!  TRUE!

      That bling does more than just shine! Your wedding ring is meant to symbolize eternity, since it is a circle it has no beginning or end (cue the aww’s). Don’t get us wrong, we love that it shines too!

      Want to make sure your face doesn’t shine bright like a diamond? Don’t forget our Mini Bride Wedding Day Emergency Kit. This kit is big enough to hold the items you need to save the day and small enough to keep all eyes on you and that ring!

        Wedding Tradition- The Bouquet Toss

        Jan 29, 2016 | Comments 0


        tossthebouquetNow it’s time for all the single ladies to hit the dance floor, and it’s not for the latest dance craze, it’s for… The Bouquet Toss.

        The theory is that the single lady who catches the bouquet will be the next one to get married, but did you ever wonder why the bride was tossing her beautiful and expensive flowers at her wedding guests?

        This tradition started in England when women would try to rip off a piece of the bride’s dress or flowers in order to obtain some of her wedding luck. Since this sounds like every bride’s nightmare, the bride would throw her flowers into the crowd of women and try to run away. We happen to prefer the toss vs. the ripping of the dress and flowers!

        If your single lady guests do try to rip the dress for luck, don’t fret! Our new fav “wedding trend” is having a Mojuba Wedding Day Emergency Kit on hand.

          Wedding Tradition- Silver Sixpence

          Jan 27, 2016 | Comments 0


          Just because the shoes are underneath your dress doesn’t mean they shouldn’t stand out right?! We’re of the mindset that when it comes to the big day any style or color goes. One of our Mojuba brides even rocked floral combat boots (see photo at bottom)! The old rule of having shoes that match the dress is no longer the rule, so “treat yo self” to that pair of red soles you have been eyeing. We apologize in advance to your groom if you happen to be staring at the shoes instead of the ring!

          Since we are talkin’ shoes we just have to ask, do you know the old saying- “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”…. Do you know the rest of the saying? Care to take a guess? Survey says, “and a silver sixpence in her shoe“. This phrase has been forgotten, and we are here to resurrect it! Here at Mojuba we know all about Murphy, the dreaded wedding guest (we are talking Murphy’s Law people). So we say why not bring on all the good luck possible and put a sixpence in your shoe. Why risk it, don’t mess with Murphy!

          We LOVE the tradition of the sixpence and it is said to bring wealth and prosperity to a marriage. Taking your first steps down the aisle can’t get much sweeter. It’s like winning Powerball! Especially because it becomes an heirloom after the wedding day. Some women make charms out of the coin and others save them to give to their daughters for their big day or another special bride-to-be in her life.

          Most brides walk down the aisle with something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. We say it is time to bring back the rest of the saying to the bride’s list of must-haves as she takes her walk down the aisle. Pair our Silver Sixpence Coin with our Wedding Day Emergency Kit for the ultimate protection against Murphy!
