Leap Year Weddings Were a Hit at Viva Las Vegas

Bride & Groom of the Week

Here at Viva Las Vegas Weddings we had no shortage of Brides and Grooms. Leap year day has quite a history..I thought I’d share. In Scotland and Finland Leap year day is when a woman could propose to a man. That kinda reminded me of the old high school Sadie Hawkins dance when the gal gets to ask her date out, and pay for the evening. Hmmmmm.

In Scotland, it is considered to be good luck to the relationship when the lady proposes on leap year day. Although there was one string attached upon the proposal, the proposer had to where a red petticoat as to warn the lucky one that they were about to pop the question. The Irish tradition states that any gentleman who refused a proposal had to give the gal a silk gown. I think I like that one. 🙂

So, to those of you that married with us at Viva Las Vegas Weddings yesterday, we bid you a beautiful “happily ever after” from your friends at Viva Las Vegas!
