International Wedding Traditions

What International Wedding Experiences Have You Had?

From the first toast to the cake-cutting ceremony, weddings are filled with traditions. However, it seems like each culture has their own set of customs. For example, a friend recently attended a wedding where they had a Peruvian "Crazy Hour" in which everyone dressed up in big hats and glowing bracelets. The lights were turned off, the music was turned up, and the guests went crazy!

Another friend helped her cousin make fruit cake to be served a couple of months down the line as favors at a traditional Irish-American wedding. According to the custom, single female guests are supposed to put the cake under their pillow and hope for a man! Since I find these international wedding practices to be fascinating, I want to hear about yours: what country wedding experiences have you had?
