Some fun fact about Wedding Tradition around the world:

  1. Much like the modern tradition of feeding wedding cake to one’s spouse, in ancient Rome, couples pledged their unity by sharing food. Today a Japanese bride and groom drink sake together, Jewish couples drink from the same cup of consecrated wine, and Muslim couples eat from the same piece of candy.

  2. Because ducks mate for life, a Korean groom will ask a happily married friend to make him two small wooden ducks for his new household.

  3. In Bali, a bride holds a cloth in front of the groom, who strikes it through with a dagger, in a display of obvious symbolism

  4. In the United States, there is no law or religious dictate that says the bride must take the groom’s last name. However, approximately 70% of Americans agree that a bride should change her last name.

  5. In India, it is considered a form of protection and luck to be symbolically married to a tree.
