Our bridal room
Many keep the tradition of the bride and groom not seeing each other before the ceremony. At The Clermont Venue we have many options to help you keep this tradition.
We have a room upstairs and downstairs with enough room for your entire entourage and a full bathroom in both to get you ready in private before you walk down the aisle. We would love to provide you with any extra needs you have, just ask and we will help you make your day perfect.
WEARING A VEIL
This custom originated in Rome, when a bride would wear a veil down the aisle to disguise herself from evil spirits who were jealous of her happiness.
NOT SEEING EACH OTHER
This superstition dates back to the time of arranged marriages, when people believed that if the couple saw each other before the ceremony, it would give them a chance to change their minds about the wedding. Today, however, many couples choose to meet up and even have portrait sessions before saying their "I dos."
CARRYING THE BRIDE OVER THE THRESHOLD
This superstition began in Medieval Europe where many believed that a bride was extra vulnerable to evil spirits through the soles of her feet. To avoid bringing in any evil spirits, the groom carried the bride into their new home.
Bells are traditionally chimed at Irish weddings to keep evil spirits away and to ensure a harmonious family life. Some Irish brides even carry small bells in their bouquets as a reminder of their sacred wedding vows, and they are a common gift for newlyweds.
