Introduction to Weddings
The wedding is a ceremony that is celebrated anywhere in
the world. Different cultures have different ways of
performing this but all of them have the purpose of
formalizing a union between two individuals.
Originally, weddings were meant for a union between a man
and a woman only. However in recent years, there have been
parts of the world where same-sex marriages are allowed.
This still sparks controversy among the majority of the
population but this is something that has definitely
changed the way how people look at this ceremony.
As mentioned earlier, weddings are celebrated differently
by different cultures. While there are those who only
choose to have a simple ceremony, other cultures make a
banquet out of it. These large celebrations can last up to
Also, each culture has its way of performing the ceremony.
Sometimes, traditional ceremonies are combined with
religious practices that make for a truly unique wedding.
But things somehow change and there are newer practices
followed by couples in their wedding.
In past, the couple took a very active role of planning
their own wedding. Today, wedding planners make it
convenient for couples to plan their wedding by leaving
everything to the planner. All the couple has to do is
provide their budget and their vision for the wedding and
the wedding planner will do the rest.
However, no matter how uniquely different traditions hold
their weddings, what remains constant throughout the world
is that the couples are the stars in this ceremony.
