A Kiss Is Not Just A Kiss

It is a Western custom for a newly married couple to exchange a kiss at the conclusion of their wedding ceremony. Some Christians hold the belief that the kiss symbolizes the exchange of souls between the bride and the groom, fulfilling the scripture that “the two shall become one flesh.”

However, some trace the tradition to an ancient Roman tradition, whereby the exchange of a kiss signified the completion of a contract.  Although the kiss is not a formal requirement of the ceremony, most regard the gesture as a joyful start of the marriage.

The most traditional way guests entice the new couple to kiss is by clinking their glasses. An ancient Christian tradition explains that the clinking sound scares the devil away and the couple kisses in his absence.  

Another tradition is to ring bells placed at the tables by the wedding party. A ring of the bell signals the bride and groom to kiss. Today, most people uphold these traditions as a fun excuse to get the couple to smooch.
