Why is the groom supposed to carry the bride “over the threshold”?
Ancient Romans believed that a bride should only enter her new home through the main door on her wedding day, but that if she tripped or fell, it would bring bad luck upon the couple’s household. The Romans feared that demons would try to trip the bride to ensure that bad luck fell upon them, so to avoid the potential downfall (get it?), the groom would just go ahead and carry her through the door and over the threshold.
