Are there any European brides in the Beehive? Where are you from, where are you planning on getting married and what are typical wedding customs from your country?
Would be nice to share!
UK is also welcome in this thread of course (I’ve previously lived in the UK and loved it), but I’ve seen several UK brides, but no other Europeans…

@sfp: EU bride here! fiance is french, and we are having our wedding in the south of france.
there have been some small surprises about a custom french wedding – like bridesmaids not expected to carry bouquets (mine will though), champagne & wine only, everything starting and ending later (we expect ours to be finished around 3am!)…. we’re also not doing a lot of traditions common in the US/UK (bouquet toss, parent/child dances, cake cutting, reception entrance, etc). we will have amazing food and wine, wonderful weather and a beautiful provencal venue 🙂
where will your wedding be?

Oooh the South of France, love love love it there! I always went there on vacation with my family when I was little (and still as an adult). Any idea where you’re wedding will be? Lots of wine and food sounds perfect.
I always love comparing those traditions, it’s so different everywhere.
I am from Holland and here it’s not even common to have bridesmaids, just one or two legal witnesses each (who tend to be your siblings or best friends).
We’re not engaged yet, but I have already a prefered venue 😉 It’s nearby where we live.
