Why do we 'get hitched'? 

I'm really pleased that this week we have signed up to wedding planning website 'Hitched' This website offers engaged couples lots of suggestions for how to make their wedding days perfect, including getting that all important wedding dress and those cute little flower girl dresses and pageboy outfits 
 
I thought I'd take the opportunity to tell you where the phrase 'getting hitched' comes from. This is where the lovely image on the right comes in. Horses are traditionally hitched together. This helps them to pull the load in the wagon behind them. When couples get married they are joined together to share the responisbilities and pleasures of life, hence the phrase 'getting hitched'
