Traditional wedding costumes have also been integral to the celebration of marriage. Shoes, in particular, have a rich history of being the focus of many auspicious traditions. From customs that encourage good fortune to playful traditions, the first steps of a newlywed couple are often seen as setting them in the direction of a happy, fruitful, and successful union.
