”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.
