The first recorded evidence of weddings comes from ancient Mesopotamia around 2350 B.C. In those days, marriage was a strategic, political alliance that expanded a tribe’s circle of trust and resources. Later, marriages became so economically important that they needed to be recognized publicly—often by throwing a huge party. As the middle class grew and ideas around marriage changed, so too did wedding customs.

Famous royals from Queen Victoria to Princess Diana influenced wedding fashions the way social media, influencers and reality television do today. And as happy couples plan their dream celebrations, they’re helped not only by vision boards but also by the planners, wedding professionals and small businesses that comprise this $300 billion dollar a year industry.

So if you’re looking for “I do” inspiration or just curious about the origins and innovations behind these age-old celebrations, get ready to lift the veil on this episode of Trailblazers. Featuring Stephanie Coontz, Chloe Schachter, David Tutera and Hamish Shephard.
