European Bridal Customs

German bridal customs add a jovial blend of customs and frolicsome challenges to a woman’s quest into matrimony, from breaking dishes to sawing through logs Family and friends gather outside the couple’s home to crack numerous porcelain dishes to bring good fortune to the couple’s wedding. One quite pre-wedding ritual is known as Polterabend. The handful is then required to remove all the pieces themselves, reiterating their commitment to working along through any challenges that may arise in the future.

La rotie, a post-wedding ceremony in Italy, is heavily physical and lurid, but it has a strong connection to rural tradition there Following the marriage, a group of friends abduct the bride and groom, who then transports them to a bar or restaurant where they serve the brides with a beverage of champagne and chocolates served in a compartment container. The couple does subsequently share a bowl of vegetable soup, which represents married life’s daily closeness.

Although it may seem common to most people to sprinkle rice or petals on newlyweds, in Poland, oats and barley are also sprinkled on the handful to wish them good fortune and fecundity. Before the marriage ceremony, the pair is likewise sprinkled with salt and bread, which are considered the essentials of life, so that they will always include what they need to thrive. Additionally, it is customary for the couple to step on vodka bottles that are displayed at the venue’s “passing gates” to wish them good fortune and abundance.
