45 Remarkable Wedding Customs From Worldwide

From the bride tossing her bouquet to wearing something old, brand-new, obtained, and blue, American wedding customs are still so popular today that even the most non-traditional couples happily participate. (Why lure fate and begin your new marriage with anything other than all the best vibes?) But Americans don’t have a monopoly on such routines– pretty much every other country and culture also has its own precious wedding event custom-mades.

Some are sweet, like how wedding guests in Sweden kiss the bride or groom anytime their new spouse leaves the room. Some are difficult: Couples in the Congo, for example, are forbidden to smile on their big day. And some are apparently unusual, such as the way engaged pairs in Mongolia need to kill and butcher a chicken to discover a healthy liver before being permitted to wed. However what binds these apparently diverse custom-mades from near and far is one simple thing: love.

If you follow these traditions, the theory goes, you will find everlasting delight with your soulmate. So, even if some Hindu bride-to-bes must initially wed a tree or some South Korean grooms have to tolerate getting their feet whipped by family and friends, hopefully, it’s all worth it in the end. When love and joy ever after are the results, it’s usually a win-win for the freshly wedded couple.
