When I attended my friends Ingvild and Marte’s wedding, I was repeatedly asked what I thought of Norwegian weddings and if there was anything strange or unusual about them.
Four things stood out, firstly, they talk a lot. Seriously, there were like a bajillion speeches, but apparently that is half a bajillion less than normal. The second thing is that they have some strange running around in the dark rituals (see below), thirdly, they’re a lot more formal than Kiwi weddings. Even the little kiddies were dressed up to the hilt with a suit and tie! Fourthly, the desserts are OMFG holy moly foodgasm territory! All in all, I highly recommend attending a Norwegian wedding 🙂 Great food, great people, awesome brides 🙂
