Mar­ria­ge Tra­di­ti­on in Scan­di­na­vi­an Count­ries


If you’­re plan­ning a Scan­di­na­vi­an mar­ria­ge or going to one, you’ll want to know about a few of the region’s uni­que prac­ti­ces. In addi­ti­on to hono­ring your or your fiance’s heri­ta­ge, some of the­se per­suits can also add fun and mea­ning to your wed­ding day.

One of the tra­di­tio­nal of all Nor­dic bridal cus­toms is usual­ly to have a Viking sword exch­an­ge with the wed­ding. This is not a ritu­al that takes place at every Nor­we­gi­an or Swe­dish wed­ding, but if it does, it is inten­ded to sym­bo­li­ze the uni­on of two fami­lies. A part from the groom’s fami­ly group typi­cal­ly pro­vi­des an old bla­de, and the new bri­de then spots her own per­so­nal ring on the hilt for the bla­de.

Ano­ther tra­di­tio­nal bridal cus­tom includes the “some­thing old, some­thing total­ly new, some­thing obtai­ned, and some­thing blue. ” The con­cept behind this real­ly is to bring good luck to the bri­de and groom. Some of the more wide­spread things that bri­des typi­cal­ly include are a hand­ker­chief from their mom (some­thing old), a new white atti­re or cap (some­thing new), a magic antique coin out of her dad­dy or grand dad­dy (some­thing bor­ro­wed), and a blue rose posy (some­thing blue).

Nor­we­gi­an wed­dings gene­ral­ly fea­ture wed­ding crowns, or per­haps bru­ne­kro­ne. The­se beau­tiful crowns are usual­ly fami­ly mem­bers heir­looms and made of sil­ver using firm deli­ca­te veils atta­ched. The veils hap­pen to be said to repre­sent puri­ty. The crowns may also curr­ent­ly have small spoon-shaped ban­gles that dang­le from their store. The­se tink­le when the star of the event tra­vels or trans­forms her brain and are belie­ved to ward off mali­gnant spi­rits.

In Nor­we­gi­an wed­dings, guests often pro­vi­de spee­ches towards the cou­ple through the recep­ti­on. A toast­mas­ter is usual­ly appoin­ted to help release the various indi­vi­du­als that will be spea­king and to keep the spee­ches moving in a time­ly man­ner. The dad­dy of the bri­de-to-be, the star of the wed­ding, the groom, the main bri­des­maid, plus the best per­son are all expec­ted to pro­vi­de a speech at some level during the recep­ti­on.

Swe­dish wed­dings tend to be fair­ly ega­li­ta­ri­an. Unli­ke a lar­ge num­ber of Deve­lo­ped wed­dings, whe­re father pro­vi­des his child away to her hus­band-to-be, Swe­dish bri­des and grooms walk down the por­ti­co tog­e­ther. That is a sign of equa­li­ty and free­dom that is accept­ed by the Swe­des. In addi­ti­on , the star of the wed­ding keeps her bridal bou­quet and does not throw it at the con­clu­si­on of the wed­ding cerem­o­ny.

A waltz is often fea­tured at Swe­dish wed­ding events, and a favo­ri­te vari­ant of this is the wea­ning waltz. In this edi­ti­on of the waltz, all femi­ni­ne guests waltz with the bri­de one by one, and then the woman dances with the groom. You guests in that case take the turn dancing while using the bri­de and, once they’­re done, the pair are reu­ni­ted.

Most of the men at a Swe­dish or per­haps Fin­nish wed­ding par­ty wear kilts rather than suits, and a sprig of light hea­ther is nor­mal­ly often pla­ced in their par­ti­cu­lar but­ton­ho­les per­ma­nent­ly luck. Pro­ducts are not ope­ned at the wed­ding recep­ti­on, but are pos­si­bly pro­vi­ded ahead of time or dis­play­ed with regards to the few to open after­ward.
