Scottish marriage and dating customs

Bedding rituals have been a popular part of a wedding in many parts of the world and can be found in societies dating back several thousand years.Although the nuances of the ritual vary from place to place, a bedding ritual usually incorporates a newly-wed couple being put to bed on their wedding night by their friends, family and wider community.Japan A couple isn’t really engaged until there’s a yunio (Japanese for “engagement ceremony”), which involves a meeting between the families of the bride and groom and the exchange of nine symbolic gifts wrapped in rice paper.Each gift is meant to symbolise particular sentiments and well wishes for the couple, such as longevity, wealth and healthy children.      When February birds do mate, you may wed, nor dread your fate.      If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you'll know.It’s a fun group dance for all the guests, with lots of participation.” Many of the steps, like the swing-your-partner moves, resemble square dancing in rural America, while when the guests circle dance, it suggests the traditional circle dance of Israel, the hora.
