Wedding Traditions From Around the World

The word wedding:
The derivation of the word "wed" comes from the Ancient Greek for "pledge" which means "to make a solemn, binding promise". The wedding, although it hasn’t been as formalised as it is now, has been one of the most important events through all cultures in history.

The wedding promise is always made before the immediate families of the Bride and Groom, who witness the event, sometimes to ensure that it did take place.


  The nature of the pledge has always varied from culture to culture.
