Wedding Fact 101-Tie the Knot

From our friends at Wedding Zone:
Ever wonder where that phrase "tie the knot" comes from? This apparently goes back to Roman times. The bride would wear a girdle that was tied in many knots, which the groom had the duty of untying. As a side note, this also can refer to the tying of the knot in hand-fasting ceremonies, which were usually done without the benefit of clergy.
