Weddings are different from country to country by Cristina Nuta -

When it comes to weddings, one can see that each country has its own traditions when celebrating this important event in our lives.

For example, in Slovenia, there is a very nice tradition in the countryside if the couple lives in different villages. Before the ceremony, the bridegroom has to go to the bride's village. On the way, the young men of the village ask him for payment for the bride. This is usually a drink. In the village, they offer lots of other women instead. The bridegroom thanks them politely and then takes his bride.

In Hungary, we come across a nice habit on the wedding day: at the party afterwards, one of the guests can dance with the bride if he puts money in a hat, which is then given to the couple.

Moreover, in Greece, there used to be an interesting tradition, but which only exists nowadays in the countryside. According to this, people at the wedding used to pin money on the bride's dress.

Two unusual things appear in Spain, too. Therefore, it's very good luck if the woman wears something red at the ceremony, on one hand. On the other hand, at the banquet afterwards, the bridegroom cuts his tie into small pieces and gives a piece to all his friends.

In Scotland, when the bride and groom come out of the church or the registry office, family and friends throw confetti at them. And before the bride gets into the car, she throws her bouquet over her head. Unmarried girls try to catch it. There's always a piper playing bagpipes when the guests arrive at the reception. When he has finished, he has to drink a large glass of whisky.

Tradition in Scotland resembles a little the one in Romania, as in our country, too, with use to throw with confetti at the brides after getting out of the church or registry. Then, there also exists the tradition of throwing the bouquet and the unmarried girls try to catch it, as it is said that the one who catches the bouquet will be the next to get married. But apart from these, we can also find another tradition at weddings in Romania: some of the brides' friends have to 'steal' the bride and take her to a place, which can generally be a bar or a disco. The groom has to find her and if he doesn't know where to find her he will have to pay some money and the friends will tell him where she is.

To conclude, we can say that weddings are traditional times for people to have a party, which the brides wish to be the best and hope that their guests enjoy themselves.
