Example: Chrisitian Traditions Chrisitan Traditions In the chrisitan weddings some things must happen. Like the bride wears white or the groom has to come into the church first. Here are theses tradtions explained. Ephesians 5:23-32 reveals that earthly marriages are a picture of the church’s’ union with Christ. God initiated the relationship through Christ, who called and came for his bride, the church. Christ is the groom, who established the blood covenant first initiated by God. For this reason, the groom enters the church first. The Groom enters first because....... Why does the Grooom enters first? Revelation 19:7-8: It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. The bride wears white because...... Why does the Bride wears white? The cutting of the cake is another picture of the cutting of the covenant. When the bride and groom take pieces if the cake and feed it to each other, once again, they are showing how they have given their all to one another, and will care for the other as one flesh. In this wedding, the cutting and feeding of the cake will be done joyfully, but lovingly and reverently, in a way that honors the covenant of our relationship. The Groom feeds the Bride with cake because.... Why does the groom feed the bride with cake?.

Transcript: Closing Prayer • The closing prayer or benediction brings the wedding ceremony to a close. • Expresses the wishes of the congregation, through the minister, offering a blessing of peace and joy and that God may bless the new couple with his presence. • Offered by a special wedding participant. Example of Closing Prayer: The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon you, and give you peace. Father of the Bride • Walks bride down the aisle, and gives bride away, and traditionally pays for wedding • Traditionally based on women living and depending on their fathers, until they are married, when their husband assumes this role. • Today, it is seen as a sign of approval and love • Paying for wedding is no longer typical, and most couples pay for the wedding themselves, or both parents provide a small amount Basic Info - Wedding cakes can range in size, from a small cake that feeds ten people, to a very large cake that will feed hundreds - Commonly, the couple ceremonially cut the first piece of the cake, and in a nod to an ancient Roman wedding rite, may feed a bite to one another and perhaps sip a glass of wine or other drink with linked arms History - One of the first traditions began in Ancient Rome where bread was broken over the bride’s head to bring good fortune to the couple - In Medieval England cakes were stacked as high as possible for the bride and groom to kiss over, if they successfully kissed over the stack they were guaranteed a prosperous life together - During the mid-17th century to the beginning of the 19th century, the “bride’s pie” was served at most weddings, guests were expected to have a piece out of politeness because it was considered very rude and bad luck not to eat the bride’s pie - The bride’s pie developed into the bride’s cake which was traditionally a plum or fruit cake--> sign of fertility and prosperity which helped them gain popularity because all married men wanted to have plenty of children - Bride’s cake eventually transformed into the modern wedding cake we know today - Pillars between cake tiers were very poorly made from broomsticks covered in icing but represented prosperity and were a status symbol because only wealthy families could afford to put them in the cake Paul the Apostle- "It becomes both men and women who marry, to form their union with the approval of the bishop, that their marriage may be according to God, and not after their own lust." Expense - Average cost of a wedding was about $28,000 in 2007, almost twice the cost of a wedding in 1990 - This average later dropped to $25,500 in 2011 with 50% of the couple’s budget being spent on the reception alone (food and alcohol) Catechism of the Catholic Church 1601 "The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament."84 I. MARRIAGE IN GOD'S PLAN 1602 Sacred Scripture begins with the creation of man and woman in the image and likeness of God and concludes with a vision of "the wedding-feast of the Lamb."85 Scripture speaks throughout of marriage and its "mystery," its institution and the meaning God has given it, its origin and its end, its various realizations throughout the history of salvation, the difficulties arising from sin and its renewal "in the Lord" in the New Covenant of Christ and the Church.86 II. THE CELEBRATION OF MARRIAGE 1621 In the Latin Rite the celebration of marriage between two Catholic faithful normally takes place during Holy Mass, because of the connection of all the sacraments with the Paschal mystery of Christ.120 In the Eucharist the memorial of the New Covenant is realized, the New Covenant in which Christ has united himself for ever to the Church, his beloved bride for whom he gave himself up.121 It is therefore fitting that the spouses should seal their consent to give themselves to each other through the offering of their own lives by uniting it to the offering of Christ for his Church made present in the Eucharistic sacrifice, and by receiving the Eucharist so that, communicating in the same Body and the same Blood of Christ, they may form but "one body" in Christ.122 1622 "Inasmuch as it is a sacramental action of sanctification, the liturgical celebration of marriage . . . must be, per se, valid, worthy, and fruitful."123 It is therefore appropriate for the bride and groom to prepare themselves for the celebration of their marriage by receiving the sacrament of penance. Secular Symbols & Rituals Wedding vows • A sacred promise between the bride and the groom in front of God. • It is a promise that they will love each other through every thick and thin situation they may come across. • The wedding vows are

Transcript: The wedding day Other steps the couple has to complete usually are : First step is the proposal. The man usually asks his partner to marry him by kneeling on one knee and offering his lover a ring. This is the most common way to propose, but there are many others. Proposal can be decided by the women as well, or by agreement such as "Let's get married" Fung Fung, M. (2011, December 12). Marriage in europe and traditional chin.

Proposal Throughout the preparations, the couple usually sends letters/invitations to their friends and family, letting them know about their engagement and inviting those people to attedn the ceremony. American Christian Wedding Marriage Customs In the West, marriage customs are not complex. There are only three steps between being a simple couple and being married. The Night before References: Mate Selection Christian weddings happen in church. Husband and wife are expected to be loyal and equal. Others also expect to see children in the future. Some wives become house wives after having kids. They quit their jobs and work at home. Men have role to sustain the family through his work. Unlike Chinese traditional weddings, American Christian weddings are far more simple and require less complications and procedures. Facts: Traditionally, on the special day, the couple gets ready separately so they can surprise each other. When the ceremony beggins, the bride walks down the aisle of the church where a preist marries the couple. The soul mates exchange vows and rings and then kiss at the end. After the ceremony, there is usually a dinner then a party to celebrate the new wife and husband. In most cases, the bride and the groom do not sleep together the night before the wedding. Their friends take them out separately to different places to celebrate their last day as "not married". Choosing the bride's dress, the venue, wedding cake, music, decorations, the date, the food and the planning of the whole day. Tip: the bride's dress is usually kept from the groom's eyes until the big day traditionally. It is also most of the time white, the colour that represents happiness. Some brides decide to be different sometimes In this type of marriage, the mate selection is very simple. It is the pure decision of the two individuals that are becoming a couple. When it comes to getting married, the family's opinion about the male or female selection can have an impact, but it is not to the family's to decide of this couple's future The next step after the couple is to be married is to get prepared for the wedding. This part of the procedure is divided in many little tasks that are to be completed. The preparations vary depending on the couple and what they want, but I will talk about the most common procedure.
