A wedding is a very exciting event to be planning and there are numerous decisions to be made; whether you are planning a small intimate affair or 'pushing the boat out'. I have a strong belief that the run up to a wedding should be as enjoyable as the big day itself.
As civilizations developed, political, military, and economic ties became very important to prominent families and clans. Arranged marriages were a means of cementing ties between families, middle class family businesses, and countries. A man's daughters, who were considered to be his property in those days, provided a means of securing needed alliances with other families. Thus dowries were introduced as a means attracting and securing the most beneficial family alliances possible.
