Log cutting – Germany

Spitting on the bride – Kenya

Eh…say what?! Yep you read that correctly!

Try and encourage the father of the bride to do this at the next wedding you go to and see how it goes!

Randsoming the bride – Romania

Apparently popular in numerous parts of Europe, bride-napping is where relatives, friends or family abduct the bride and the groom has to win her back whether that is through grand romantic gestures or through bribing people with drinks!
