The most moving of celebrations has given rise to crazy traditions across the world. Getting married, entering to a civil partnership relationship, getting remarried while surrounded by a flock of children…
Many are prepared to take the plunge, but in their own particular way. While the French fight over the bride’s garter, the German’s break plates in front of the house of the betrothed to ward off evil spirits.
The Austrians are also not to be outdone, kidnapping the bride and expecting the groom to find her. Festivities can last for a week in Morocco, or put couples sorely to the test in China with enormous, never-ending meals. But from Lima to Timbuktu, giving gifts remains a universal given demonstrating the affection of one’s nearest and dearest and immortalizing these moments of commitment between two people who are madly in love.
