weddings in sweden

Swedish wedding customs. Every bride and groom from overseas that I meet that are getting married in Sweden. I warn them about two things ‘ the kiss ‘ and ‘ the wedding cake’ . For english, american , australian brides and grooms that are marrying a swedish half … they all think you will hear the words ‘ you may kiss the bride ‘ .. and see a wedding cake at the reception. Well I just saw this on wikipedia .. so now its official
In a Swedish church wedding, the priest generally doesn’t say when the couple may kiss each other, in contrast to Anglo-Saxon traditions. It is probably because the kiss doesn’t traditionally belong to Swedish wedding customs, but has relatively recently been associated with marriage

but here is a you may kiss the bride moment

Grand Hotel Stockholm Sweden

Grand Hotel Stockholm really is an international 5 star hotel to have a wedding in Sweden. Just this week two couples I have met who are having their wedding at this venue. I decided to make a photo slideshow of some of my fave photographs , I came across this series of photos of Maria getting ready at the bridal suite at the Grand. Maria jumping on the bed will always be etched in my memory.

Såstaholm Bröllop

Såstaholm I always think as the Hollywood of Stockholm I have always loved Såstaholm as I spent 17 years of my life in the movie capital Los Angeles . But this is not Hollywood its Täby . The wedding venue was known as “Höstsol” (Autumn Sun) for 60 years . A famous residence for many of Swedens old actors and actresses, after they retired from the theater stages.
This weekend was Henrik and Louise s turn to appear in starring roles in their wedding . Cars with custom plates and retro cars took a supporting role.

Weddings in Sweden the survey

The Local my local newspaper has just reported on weddings in sweden
To read the full article from Peter Vinthagen Simpson click on the link below :

It reports 48,000 Swedes were married in Sweden 2009, with most swedish couples getting married footing the bill themselves, this a new report from Synovate.
Ten percent of couples splash out more than 100,000 kronor on their weddings with those living in larger cities
“The more expensive weddings are not in the majority, but in the bigger cities every fifth wedding costs more than 100,000 kronor,” said Ylva Yngveson at Swedbank in statement.
The report not mentioning wedding photographers whose work will be apart of the couples lives were not mentioned but the reception costs an average of 35,000 kronor while the rings come in at around 10,000 kronor. There

Couples invite an average of 67 guests, which I think is on the low side most of my weddings in Stockholm are 80 plus , it mentions larger receptions held by those getting married for the first time .

Many couples save for more than two or three years to pay for their wedding however 1st timers 73 percent of the couples, tend to receive the most help from parents.

The survey shows that the wedding dress bride’s parents’ help to fund, while the rings are the item selected by the couple themselves.
Surprisingly it said church weddings remain popular with two-thirds undergoing a religious ceremony , last year for me it was the reverse most opting for an outdoor ceremony at a venue.
