When you plan to host a wedding internationally, a lot of times our minds wander in search of marriage undertakings. We all want our wedding to be unique and out-of-the-box, here we have listed a few styles of international weddings you might wish to have.
French Style Weddings
French weddings are in trend because of their eclectic culture and frolicsome customs. In France a groom may meet his fiancé at her home on the day of the wedding and guide her to the chapel where the ceremony is being held, there, the children stretch long white ribbons across the road which the bride will cut as she passes. The bride and groom are seated on two red velvet chairs beneath a silk canopy called a carre, at the chapel.
The French weddings are sober at the same time having all the fun-filled activities. If your dream is to have a French style wedding you can assure all the charm. Decorated with pastel flowers and bouquets the wedding can be as detailed as you have I imagined.
Greek Style Weddings
Greek weddings are filled with traditions and have a charm of their own. For instance, on the very day of the wedding, the groom cannot see the bride until the wedding ritual is held. The groom arrives first in church and waits for the bride, who typically arrives late. After they trade flower bouquets, they have the wedding ceremony, where the best man puts the wedding rings and crowns on the couple. So if you have wanted a crown on your head and want to feel like a princess then we suppose that Greek-style weddings are made for you. At the end of the wedding ceremony, as the newly wedded pair leaves the church, the guests throw rice and flowers for fertility and happiness.
Italian Style Weddings
In some parts of Italy, a party, known as a Serenade, is thrown outside of the bride’s home by the groom. Italian wedding is a fun-filled event which comprises of modern as well as olden traditions which blend into each other seamlessly. If you wish to have that old-world-charm in the 21st century then Italian wedding is what you are looking for.
The green color is very vital in all Italian weddings. This is thought to bring good luck to the married couple. The veil and bridesmaids are also very important for an Italian wedding.
Indian Style Weddings
The Indian weddings are colorful and vibrant. They have an electrifying vibe that is unprecedented in the world, mostly because of an eclectic cultural background. The ceremonies usually start with a tilak ceremony, then a ceremony called Mehendi for adorning the bride’s hand and feet with henna is hosted accompanied by Ladies’ Sangeet (music and dance), and many other pre-wedding ceremonies.
Another important ceremony is the “Haldi” program where the bride and the groom are rubbed with turmeric paste. Lastly, the procession called baraat is held, and then the religious rituals take place to celebrate the wedding according to the religion of the couple.
Russian Style Weddings
Russian weddings have amazing traditions. The dress, itself, usually is made from white fabric that is believed to be the color of joy, the symbol of purity and goodness. Wedding shoes served the symbol of the bride’s thrift and willingness to be a good housekeeper, as she was supposed to buy the shoes from her savings.
These traditions are suggestive of the vast culture and tradition of the Russians. If you want to be a Russian Bride then gates are open for you!
