The word, "Wedding" comes from the Anglo-Saxon word "wedd" that meant a man would marry a woman and pay the Bride's father.
10 fun and interesting trivia about weddings:
Wedding gifts originated from the notion of a bride price or dowry that was paid to the bride's family. It usually included land, animals, money, and other forms of historical wealth. The first recorded dowry was exchanged in 3,000 B.C.
Traditionally newly weds would often move into a house together for the first time so traditional gifts would often be the gifts that would be used in the new house.
