The Wedding Bell

When a Bride finds her perfect dress at David’s Bridal, we get her to participate in the “Ringing of the Bell” ceremony. She closes her eyes, makes a wish and rings the bell. Kinda cheesy, I know, but a lot of Brides love it!

Church bells would ring to let everybody know that a special event, like a wedding, had taken place. They were said to ward off evil spirits that would try to ruin the newlyweds happiness. From ringing the bells, it was said to bring good luck and fortune to the newly married couple.

Now, the bell is still a popular marriage symbol and is rung to celebrate the couple’s new life together.

Here are some ways to integrate bells into your big day; putting a bell graphic on your invitations or programs, hanging them at the ends of the pews for the ceremony, adding them to your reception centerpieces or hand them out to your guests to ring as you leave the reception onto the honeymoon.
