There are always traditions that take place before, during and after a wedding. These traditions will seem odd to an outsider of that country who may think why they are doing this, that and the other. But to the residents of that country or the believers for that religion it is very normal and is expected of the couple to take part in these traditions. A marriage Denmark is no different, odd to the outsider normal to the insider. But when two people experience love or even Danish love then they are prepared to do these traditions in order to show there love.
A marriage Denmark is not without its traditions. Before the wedding vows take place in a marriage Denmark then there is the tradition wedding construction of building an arch of pine branches. This arch of pine branches bares the name the Gate of Honor. The pine branches are placed in front of the bride's home. Also when the couple celebrate their silver wedding anniversary then this tradition is reborn again as they receive another arch of pine branches on the anniversary.
At the wedding reception of a marriage Denmark the groom will disappear for a while and all the male guests at the reception will kiss the new bride. When the groom returns the bride will then leave the room and all the female guests will kiss the groom. As another tradition at a marriage Denmark the guests at the reception will all gather around the groom during the dancing and will cut his socks and tie with scissors.
A traditional Danish wedding cake also has its differences. The traditional Danish wedding cake (the cake also bears the name cornucopia cake) is made will almonds and marzipan. On the outside of the cake it is decorated with sugar. The inside of the cake is filled with fresh fruit, candy and almond cakes. There is the option of adding little Danish flags onto the cake, because we all know that the Danes are obsessed with their flags. To avoid any bad luck the couple will cut the cake together and all of the reception guests must eat a piece of the Danish wedding cake.
There is a rather nice tradition that Danish couples are free to do. If the bride or groom has deceased parents then there is the option of having the wedding party in a cemetery, also the couple will place the bride's bouquet onto the grave of the deceased parents.
When two Danish people experience Danish love they will like all new lovers will see if the love that they have blossoms. If the love does blossom and they want to secure their love then they have the option of getting married and experiencing these traditions that occur when there is a Danish wedding. But traditionally the Scandinavians do not like to rush into a wedding, and with good reason. The Scandinavians view marriage as a serious business and in many parts of Scandinavia any engagement can last up to three and even four years. This is the best way for the couple to get to know each other inside out; it can also allow them the opportunity to see their partner at their best and at their worst. Therefore allowing the couple to decide if this person is the one that they want to spend the rest of their life with.
