German Bridal Customs

To put a special and lovely aspect to their marriage ceremony, many people embrace traditions that stem from their historical roots For instance, some brides will break panels at their reception while others will wear plant wreaths as a sign of their ties to the world.

The night before the wedding, friends and family of the betrothed collect at the princess’s home and forcefully smash ceramic to ward off evil souls. This is known as polterabend, a well-known German custom. After that, the shards are collected and saved to be dug up and consumed at a communal consuming event the following year.

Before the wedding enters the house on the major morning in Romania, the couple’s best men did frequently serenade her. Then, as Lautari ( traditional wedding singers ) sing themed songs like” Ia- ti mireasa buna” (” Bride’s farewell” ), they will block the entrance to her parents ‘ home with furniture and guests. The wife is therefore kidnapped, and they flee to a bar where she must tip the bartender in order to avoid getting into trouble.

The bread and salt service is another European bride custom. The pair is given bread and salt by their families during this time. To demonstrate to the brides that they will need to cooperate in order to overcome any challenges, the bread symbolizes sweet life while the sugar represents hatred.

The car de mariage, where the newlyweds hold a vodka bowl and bread their guests with it, is another European marriage custom. Products are typically displayed at the reception for friends to take home with them if the pair decides not to empty them during the service. In contrast, women typically wear suits to the greeting while the groom and his female wedding party normally don kilts.
