European Ceremony Traditions

The day to get married is the biggest and most fascinating event of a lifetime for any couple. Although the majority of ceremony rites conform to a fundamental framework, countless European nations have their own distinct cultures that are sure to entertain friends and the brides.

In remote France it is typical to have a blog- wedding ceremony called la rotie, in which the bride and groom are kidnapped by their buddies( or the best guy). The team did subsequently edge the couple out of bed and push them to ingest a mash- up of champagne and chocolate from a chamber pot or toilet bowl. While this seems quite lurid and out- putting, it is actually meant to symbolize the woman’s bridge from youth to adulthood as well as the community’s involvement in their married lives.

Another fun tradition can be found in Romania and other European countries. During the days leading up to the wedding, guests work together to abduct the bride and whisk her away to an undisclosed location where they will demand a ransom from the groom. It is a great way to break the ice between the couples and also test how well they will be able to work together.

Lastly, in the Netherlands and Belgium it is common for the groom to gift his bride with something special the day after their wedding. This can range from cash to a car or even a castle! This tradition shows the love and appreciation of the couple towards their loved ones.
