Does anyone know any fun wedding traditions in Europe?

Jump to last reply

I am throwing a bridal shower at a wine bar in a few weeks. Instead of just doing the traditional shower games (toilet paper wedding gown design, etc), I was hoping to bring a little culture to the party. I thought it would be fun if we incorporated an activity or tradition of a European country...and at the same time, enjoy a glass of wine from the same country. We are going to sample 3 wines, so I was hoping for 3 activities. I will pick the wines after I decided which countries have fun traditions that I can use at my shower.

One fun idea that I found while surfing the internet was to have all of the single ladies at the shower sign the sole of the brides wedding shoes. According to Spanish legend, the girl whose signature has faded the least at the end of the wedding night is the next to get married. This is not really a game or activity, but I thought it may be a fun tradition to copy.

I was hoping some of you on this forum may have some other fun ideas to share with me. Even if it is just the smallest tradition, I may be able to modify it into a full on activity. Thanks for your help
