Romanian Wedding Cultures

A ceremony is one of the few days when romanian citizens genuinely go all out and dress up. Fancy meets for men, dresses and gowns for women and coiffed locks and extensive nails are all the rule. The function is also a time to bring donations of money and presents for the bride and groom, which they collect as they leave the church and supper reception.

After the cake romanian women is served a special boogie known as “hora” is performed. The wedding and all adult guests start to waltz. Males can join but they have to compensate a small sum of money and the collected volume goes to the wife.

Close to the end of the bride reception a history is performed whereby the couple’s aunt takes off the marital mask. The wife is supposed to refuse and ‘ combat’ against it ( three times at least ) and then she is lastly allowed to take off the headscarf. This is to express the transfer from a female to a married woman who will take care of her spouse and future toddlers.

If you are invited to a romanian bride you can expect a really much evening of partying and consuming. It is not unusual for the party to last up to 10 days and there are usually 4 training plus cake. It is very important to wear comfortable shoes as there will be a lot of dancing and a lot of food and drinks served. There may be special occasions during the bash too such as the single woman who catches the bridal bouquet and the singly gentleman who catches the lace.
