    By now you've probably heard the phrase "it's tradition!" like a hundred times. While some wedding traditions are arguably on their way to being out of fashion (it seems like every year fewer brides make time for a garter toss), there's good reason why some of these tried-and-true wedding staples are still around: They're steeped in history.
