German Bride Customs

Although traditional Western wedding customs do not include these activities, most American couples properly own time-honoured engagement parties, marital showers, and bachelor/bachelorette parties. This does not mean that Europeans are starting to combine some of these entertaining and well-liked customs, but instead that they do so in their own unique way.

For instance, guests will insert a piece of toast into the Coupe de Marriage, also known as the ceremony cup or baking mug, during a French marriage ceremony. We derive the name” to toast” from this custom, which literally means to raise a glass to the handful! A castle of creme-filled dessert puffs known as the croquembouche is even served by the French as their snack.

It is customary for family and friends to hold a krevati, three days before the wedding, in the countryside of southern France. Families and friends will visit the partners at their home and place their children and money on the bed for wealth and benevolence. The partners subsequently transports this gift collection with them to their welcome.

Without some amateur enjoyment, a wedding is incomplete in Switzerland. The best person and maid of honor likely arrange a game schedule to make up the period between the mid-day drink and meal a few hours afterward. In order to honor or make fun of the few during this time, visitors will dress up and perform sketches or songs. For instance, they might force the groom to chop wood or force him to make a blanket. The couple may also receive a surprise of green apples to provide them good fortune in their future together, in addition to these amusing activities.
