≡ What Weddings Are Like In Different Parts of the World ➤ Brain Berries

Different cultures will often try to celebrate different things or celebrate things in their unique way. The typical American birthday party (not the Kanye West one) may look radically different from a French one, for example. While religion is often a huge factor in how we celebrate important moments in our lives, cultural history and habit aren’t to be underestimated.

Since it would be impossible to look at all important moments in someone’s life, let’s take a look at how a wedding would be all over the world.


The most unique thing about weddings in India is known as the Mehendi ceremony. It’s where the bride’s limbs are painted entirely with henna, and all female friends and relatives or the bride join in on the painting.


The biggest wedding tradition in Germany actually takes place before the wedding. Polterabend is something they do the night before the wedding and it basically surmounts to smashing loads of dishes for luck. Because why not.


In Tuscany, it was actually common to get married in black as a bride instead of white. You can imagine this set them apart from the rest of the world quite easily. Sadly, this tradition has all but vanished and most Italian women get married in white like the rest of us.
