So I am near to the portion of my story where the hero and heroine are going to get married. I've been researching the topic online and boy, there are a lot of conflicting statements. One thing to avoid, I found, are wedding sites. I'm not sure where they get their info, but they all seem to conflict with each other. But here are a couple I found pretty handy for an English wedding.Marriage in the 18th Century
talks a bit about the concept of marriage in the era. Later on through the pages it does get into specifics. The second site, The English Bride
is a breezy, easily-read site that is fun and informative.
The one thing I cannot find is the place of the wedding ring. They were considered essential in Church of England marriage, but there seems to be some indecision if they were part of the ceremony or given sometime afterward. A little thing, really, but I wish I had a concrete answer. If anyone has a source, let me know.
