French Ceremony Customs

French ceremonies tend to be fairly formal and traditional matters. Guests are expected to use great clothing( no t- shirts or short, for illustration) and hats are allowed for ladies, but not for people. It is also forbidden for a guest to wear light.

Before the ceremony, the man greets the bride at her household and takes her to the chapel or chapel. Kids may block their way with white bows, which the wife cuts to break through the obstacles she will encounter in marriage. This is a pre-cursor to the contemporary veil. Once inside the religion, the pair stands beneath a” carre”, or velvet ceiling, symbolizing protection from bad influences. Laurel foliage are laid down for a bridal journey outside the cathedral.

The bride and groom mark their ceremony certificates known as le griffin and le libellule, and the priest pronounces them husband and wife in the chapel. After, the bride will change into her next dress- frequently a much more intricate and formal affair. When they leave the church, she does remain showering with rice or blooms, or both.

As the honeymooners leave the greeting, a procession of autos beep for them- a tradition called “la noce en voiture”. The couple also dances up under a massive umbrella as a sign of their future protection from rain. And of course, a few of the kids ( “les enfants de l’honneur” ) take on the roles of flower girls and ring bearers to add some charm to the occasion.
