German Bridal Customs

Western marriage customs add a cheerful mixture of customs and humorous challenges to a child’s quest into matrimony, from breaking dishes to sawing through logs. Family and friends gather outside the princess’s home to crack numerous ceramic meals to deliver good fortune to the child’s marriage in one of the pre-wedding rituals known as Polterabend. The few is next required to remove all the pieces themselves, bringing home the couple’s commitment to perseverance in the event that they encounter difficulties in the future.

La rotie, a post-wedding ceremony in Italy, is greatly sexual and profane, but it has a strong connection to remote tradition there. After the marriage, a group of friends abduct the bride and groom, who subsequently transports them to a bar or restaurant where they serve the newlyweds with a beverage of champagne and chocolate served in a chamber bowl. Following this, the couple will reveal a bowl of vegetable dish, which embodies the daily intimacy of a married living.

Although it may seem common to most people to sprinkle corn or petals on newlyweds, in Poland, oats and barley are also sprinkled on the partners to wish them both good health and fecundity. Before the wedding ceremony, the couple is also sprinkled with salt and bread, which symbolize the necessities of life, so that they will always have what they need to survive. Additionally, it is customary for the couple to step on vodka bottles that are displayed at the venue’s “passing gates” and wish them good fortune and abundance.
