GERMAN WEDDING TRADITIONS

  1. 1. GERMAN WEDDING CUSTOMS BY ITALIA JALOMO
  2. 2. THE OUTFITS In Germany the traditional engagement ring is usually a gold band worn on the left hand. After the wedding the same ring is worn on the right hand. Men also wear their wedding ring on the right hand. Brides normally wear white gowns and the grooms will be dressed in black. The bride carries lengths of white ribbon with her bouquet, and after the church ceremony is over and the guests are leaving the church, she hands each driver a ribbon that they tie to the radio antenna.
  3. 3. BEFORE THE WEDDING A few days before the wedding the groom and his male friends go to a pub or sometimes other places to drink and have fun. (the last time?) In some areas (mostly in small villages) friends kidnap the bride and the groom has to find her. Normally, he has to search in a lot of pubs and invite all people in there (or pay the whole bill). Sometimes this ritual ends badly. The father of the bride has to pay the wedding. This is an old custom but today normally both parents and the couple itself divide the costs for the wedding. After the wedding when the bride leaves the church, friends throw rice on them and it is said that they will get as many children as rice grains stay in the hair of the bride. Besides the flowers for the bride and in church, the hood of the wedding car is decorated with lots of flowers.
  4. 4. Dance - the first dance is traditionally a waltz. Polterabend - plates and dishes are smashed (the broken pieces are thought to bring good luck to the bride). The bride and groom have to clean up everything. Wedding Shoes - another tradition is to collect pennies for years and buy wedding shoes for the bride with this money. First Night - to make the first night as difficult as possible, friends of the couple do lots of funny or sometimes cruel things. They fill up the rooms with balloons, hide lots of alarm clocks in the bedroom, take apart the bed, and so on.
  5. 5. CONCLUSION EVERY COUNTRY IS DIFFERENT, HOWEVER, MOST OF THE WEDDING TRADITIONS ARE FUN. IN GERMANY, THE MOST WEIRD BUT FUN TRADITION I FOUND IS THE POLTERABEND, WHICH HAS ITS MEANING AND THE PEOPLE BELIEVES AND ADOPTS IT. DESPITE MOST OF THE TRADITIONS ARE NOT TOO DIFFERENT FROM OURS, THEY HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL CHARACTERIZE THEM.
