Continental Wedding Customs

While traditional Western wedding customs do not include these activities, most American people may possess time-honoured proposal parties, marital showers, and bachelor/bachelorette parties. This does not mean that Europeans are starting to add some of these entertaining and well-known customs, but instead that they do so in their own distinct way.

For instance, friends at a French wedding ceremony will insert a piece of toast into the Coupe de Marriage, also known as the marriage bowl or cooking mug. We get the name” to pancakes” from this custom, which actually means to raise a cup to the partners! A building of creme filled dessert sips known as the croquembouche is also served by the French as their dessert.

It is customary for family and friends to keep a krevati three days before the wedding in the landscape of southern France Families and friends will visit the partners at their house and place their children and money on the pillow for happiness and benevolence. The handful then moves on to their welcome area and brings this stack of presents with them.

A ceremony is incomplete without some aspiring leisure in Switzerland. The best man and maid of honor does create a game schedule to make up the period between the noon appetizer and dining a few hours later. In order to honor or make fun of the pair during this period, customers will dress up and perform sketches or songs. For instance, they might require the groom to chop wooden or push him to weave a scarf. The pair may also receive a surprise of green apples to send them good fortune in their futures together in addition to these interesting activities.
