Continental Bridal Traditions

The day to find married is the biggest and most exciting function of a lifetime for any couple Although the majority of bride rites conform to a rudimentary framework, some Continental states have their own special customs that are sure to entertain friends and the newlyweds.

In remote France it is usual to have a write-up- bride tradition called la rotie, in which the bride and groom are kidnapped by their associates( or the best gentleman). The team likely next point the couple out of bed and push them to sip a mash- up of champagne and chocolate from a chamber pot or toilet bowl. While this seems instead scatological and out- putting, it is actually meant to symbolize the couple’s viaduct 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.
