Fun European Wedding Tradition


Over time, marriage festivities have largely managed to conform to some architecture that is quite common generally in most countries. But, each tradition has its own customs that are distinctive to them. Some of these entertaining european wedding tradition does seemed a little bit crazy to non- locals, but they truly carry meaning for the couple and their family and friends.

The tradition of the wife- snoring is a common one around eastern Europe, it is essentially where close friends of the bridegroom does”kidnap” the bride during the group and take her somewhere otherwise( mostly to a bar or club ). They will then contact the wedding to demand a compensation which he will have to go from tavern to tavern to pay until they release the wife. This is meant to teach the wedding that his wife will not be a wuss and that he should be strong enough to stand up for what he wants in his existence.

In France, spouses does generally drink purple liquor from the same drink during their welcome. This is a symbol of sharing their lives up and avoiding quarrels.

The Welsh also have a sweet little tradition of giving their newlyweds carved cutlery, called lovespoons, decorated with tips and stones that represent the key to their soul. This is to ensure that the couple are not just romantic but true to each other throughout their marriage. In Greece, three days before a wedding, the couple will have a krevati ceremony where friends and family come over to their home and pin money on their mattress in a sign of good fortune.
