Cultural Traditions

Your cultural heritage is a significant part of who you are. It can influence your appearance, choice of religion, even temperament. In this section we have compiled overviews of wedding traditions from around the world. The variety of wedding traditions is a wonderful reflection of how cultures can vary dramatically between countries and even regions. You may wish to use touches from one or more cultures in your wedding, or use these overviews as a springboard to explore a particular set of traditions in more depth.
