Romanian Wedding Traditions

A wedding is one of the few days when romanian citizens really go all out and dress up. Fancy suits for males, dresses and gowns for women and attired mane and thorough nails are all the norm. The event is also a time to bring products of income and displays for the bride and groom, which they collect as they leave the church and breakfast reception.

After the bread is served a specific dance known as “hora” is performed. The wife and all adult friends start to dancing. Gentlemen does subscribe but they have to give a small sum of money and the collected amount goes to the wedding.

Close to the end of the bride greeting a tradition is performed whereby the couple’s godmother takes off the marital mask. The wedding is supposed to refuse and ‘ struggle’ against it ( three times at least ) and then she is ultimately allowed to take off the shawl. This is to symbolise the move from a child to a committed woman who will take care of her husband and future babies.

It is not uncommon for the group to last up to 10 days and there are typically 4 training plus cake.

There may be special events during the group to such as the one woman who catches the bridal bouquet and the separately person who catches the badge.
