”For example, did you know that at Swedish weddings, it’s common for all the men to kiss the bride if the groom leaves the table, and vice versa. It’s a mad moment of chaos, everyone clinks their glasses, all the men (or women) run around the table smooching the newlywed, and all the foreign guests are sitting there gobsmacked. It's quite something.”

:-)

Nowadays a Swedish wedding can take almost any form. Swedes, in general, aren't that devout, so you are as likely to see the wedding take place for instance on a bridge or a boat as in a church.

I guess that compared to what you see in American movies you would think of many Swedish wedding dresses as modest. But white is the most common color.

#3 You can dress how you want and a easy way to get married wouldn't take more than a few minutes and no costs. You can use your money a better way.

We thought it was better to work hard, save money, build our first house than have a costly wedding.
