Romanian Wedding Traditions
Before the Wedding Vows
Young women in Romania begin planning for their wedding day long before they know who they will marry. Hopeful, young girls begin making and collecting accessories for their trousseau, or hope chest, as early as six years old.
In the mountains of Romania there is an annual festival, on June 29th, where families gather to display their daughter's trousseau.
After the Wedding Ceremony
Instead of rice, Romanian newlyweds may have candy or nuts thrown at them by wedding guests.
