The Tradition of Wedding Bells

Kissing Bell FavorsWedding bells have been a part of weddings for centuries, symbolizing love, luck and new beginnings. In days gone by, church bells would ring across the countryside to signify that some event was happening at the church, be it a wedding, a funeral or a Sunday service. The bells were thought to bring good luck to the newlywed couple. Some superstitious tales would say that the bells also frightened away evil spirits and bad vibes to ensure marital bliss and happiness. Today, wedding bells are still oftentimes rung as the couple exits the church, as part of the ceremony, or at the wedding reception. Bells are also now a popular wedding theme, used on invitations, attached to centerpieces, and given to guests in the form of wedding bell favors.

Kissing Bells

Posted on May 15th, 2008 by Kori Ellis in Wedding Favors

A long time wedding tradition is for guests to ring bells that are placed on the tables at the reception. The ring of the bell signals the bride and groom to kiss. The clinking of glasses can also be a sign for the newlyweds to kiss.

White Open Heart Wedding BellIf you want to offer kissing bells at your wedding reception, Truly Wedding Favors offers a variety types of bells.

I think the best thing to do is get bells that can do double-duty as place card holders. The White Open Heart Wedding Bell pictured here does just that. These chrome wedding bells serve as place card holders, yet your guests can also ring them throughout the reception. I also love this chrome wedding bell which features an acrylic rose on top.

The Tradition of Wedding Bells

Wedding BellsIn a church wedding, it’s tradition to have the church bells rung as the couple emerges from the church after the ceremony is over. The ringing of the bells is supposed to drive away any evil spirits and ensure the couple’s good fortune as they begin their journey as man and wife.

Another tradition involving bells is during the actual wedding ceremony. You can have a child walk down the asile ringing a porecelain bell proclaiming, “The Bride is Coming!” right before the bride walks down the aisle. This is a cute tradition that your wedding guests will applaud.

You can also have smaller bells that are handed out as the guests enter the church. At the end of the ceremony, they will ring the bells as the bride and groom kiss and exit the church. These small bells can then be collected or taken by the guests to the reception site where they are rung again during the reception to invite the bride and groom to kiss.

If you are looking to purchase bells for your wedding, Truly Wedding Favors offers a wide variety of different bells.

You can choose the 4″ tall silver plated bells pictured here for as little as $2.29 each. If you want something even more affordable, select these little silver kissing bells. These small bells are 1″ high and your guests can use them as Christmas ornaments after the event. Stumble
