Wedding Traditions from Around the World
In Greece, it’s traditional for the bride to hide a sugar cube in her glove – to sweeten the years of marriage ahead.
There is a ‘kissing tradition’ in some Scandinavian countries. At the wedding reception, if the groom leaves the room, the bride is expected to kiss all the single men. The same goes for the groom. If the bride leaves, it’s his turn to smooch the single girls.
In the Sichaun region of China a bride is supposed to spend an hour a day crying for 30 days before her marriage – as an expression of her happiness! In some marriages, the crying starts AFTER the wedding.
