Croatian Wedding Traditions
On the wedding day of a Croatian couple, the bride's family may playfully try to stall the groom from arriving at the church with his intended, by putting up different obstacles in the couple's path.
After the traditional Croatian wedding ceremony and marriage vows have taken place, female relatives remove the bride's wedding veil and replace it with a scarf and apron while singing to her. This symbolizes the new bride's status as a wife. Then all of the guests walk three times around a well which represents the holy trinity, and throw apples into it, to ensure the newlywed's fertility.
