Romanian Marriage Beliefs

A bridal is one of the few instances when romanian persons genuinely go all out and dress up. Fancy fits for men, dresses and gowns for women and attired mane and detailed nails are all the norm. The event is also a time to bring gifts of funds and gifts for the bride and groom, which they collect as they leave the church and breakfast reception.

After the cake is served a unique boogie known as “hora” is performed. The wife and all feminine guests start to dance. Males may meet but they have to paid a small sum of money and the collected volume goes to the wife.

Close to the end of the wedding reception a convention is performed whereby the couple’s grandma takes off the bridal mask. The wife is supposed to fail and ‘ struggle’ against it ( three periods at least ) and then she is finally allowed to take off the blanket. This is to represent the shift from a girl to a married woman who will take care of her father and potential youngsters.

If you are invited to a romanian ceremony you can expect a really lengthy nights of dancing and eating. It is not unexpected for the group to last up to 10 hours and there are often 4 courses plus cake. It is very important to wear comfortable shoes as there will be a lot of dancing and a lot of food and drinks served. There may be special events during the bash too such as the one female who catches the bridal bouquet and the single gentleman relationship with a romanian woman who catches the lace.
