Hey guys,

Not that it is anywhere near relevant to these forums, but since I am quite regular here, I just wanted to share the joy :)
I just got married last week, and here're the pics :)

By the way, I am curious what are the wedding rituals in different countries?

I can't say much about my country (Bulgaria) since we didn't go through the traditional Bulgarian wedding, but here's what I know:
- The groom goes to pick up the best man (yeah, no bachelor party)
- The groom must BUY (and they do not accept credit cards!) the bride from her parents
- The bride hides one of her shoes somewhere inhouse, and the groom must find it and then stuff it with money (only cash again)
- The best man must steal a cock (the bird!)
- We have ceremony in the municipality, where the legal part of the wedding happens
- Church wedding after that (not obligatory)
- Restaurant for all the guests + hotel for some
- The groom and the bride split bread above their heads. It's believed that whoever grabs the bigger part must bring the money into the family, and the other one must spend them (I got the bigger half...pitty)
- There's traditional bulgarian dance, called Horo (I have no idea how this translates, but the dance sux big time...it's quite primitive, and the music is awful)
- First dance- the groom and the bride dance alone for the first time in their wedded life
- Cutting 2 pieces of a cake - one for the groom & the bride and one for whomever they decide
- Exchange gifts with the guests
- The bride throws flowers
- The groom gets the bride's garter

That's it :)

Cheers,
ILIYA

:) No problem, I am used to it... many people confuse me for woman because of this name, but what can I do...it's simply not a popular international name, and few know it's a male name here (it's Greek actually...).

I wonder how many people of all who know me only from the internet, still think I am a woman...haha, at least I could get some benefits out of it :D

Cheers,
ILIYA

No rituals written in stone for same-sex marriages. I am just beginning to plan my wedding for next summer. We might have fag hags instead of bride's maids and gushers instead of ushers. Also, I want to get some of these:

Hey guys,

Thank you all for the warm words :)
To be frank, I never believed this thread could get so many replies, but Maria suggested I should open this thread, so I did.

Anyways, the photographer really proved to be amazing! When we hired him, I believed we are hiring the best photographer in the country (and most popular one), but after I saw the pictures, I realized it was true :)

Cheers,
ILIYA

No rituals written in stone for same-sex marriages.

I think same-sex marriages should not be different than male-female marriages...but I am not sure. Never seen one myself...I think it's even not officially allowed by law in my country...but I am not sure.

I know about some marriage rituals in italy but maybe they are international and not just italian - throwing rice at the couple when they go out of the church, not seeing each other in the wedding day until they both are in the church, things like that.
A weird one that applies only to some regions of Italy is that the bride should store a slice of the wedding cake for a year. This way her husband will always be faithful to her. Don't aske me why.

Not seeing the bride (and the dress) before the wedding is valid for Bulgaria too...but I forgot it. The rice thing in front of the church- we have it with water.
But man, about that cake...that's a weird one :D Just like our (bulgarian) where the best man must catch a rooster :D
Imagine the smell...in both rituals :D

Congratulations Iliya! Are you two going anywhere special for a honeymoon?

I'm not married but here are the American Wedding traditions I know of:
1. Bachelor party for the groom, strippers should be mandatory imo :D
2. You're not supposed to see the bride or her gown on the wedding day
3. Some brides have a tradition of wearing: 'Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue'.
4. After the ceremony the bride throws her bouquet over her shoulder, to the crowd of women, and the one who catches it is supposed to get married next.
5. I hear that during bachelorette parties, some girl usually makes a penis-shaped cake for the bride :eek:
6. I think people still throw rice at the couple when they are leaving the church or ceremony.
7. The best man gets to hook up with the maid of honor :D

Congratz mate! I hope you have a healthy relationship. I'm the type of person who isn't really planning to have kids but I am also on the fritz about getting married or not.

Nearly 70% of all married men and 60% of married women have had affairs. Thatís two out of every three marriages.
Every ten to thirteen seconds someone gets divorced.
50% of women and 33% of men remain angry for ten years after a divorce.
Women have more trouble starting new relationships than divorced men do.
More than 90% of divorces in long-standing marriages involve infidelities some time during the marriage.
More than 50% may be involved in a current affair, yet only 25% cite an affair as an actual reason for divorce.
80% of those who divorce during an affair regret the decision.
Over 75% who marry partners in an affair eventually divorce.
The divorce rate and ratio of infidelity are much higher among marriage partners in an affair.
The average affair lasts two to four years.
If an affair becomes public it is doomed.
If an affair replaces the marriage, it is subject to the same emotional stresses as the marriage but is twice as likely to fracture.
An affair prevents binding ties from being formed. Eventually it has nowhere to go. Sooner or later it will suffocate in secrecy.
Affairs die for the same reason as marriage, lack of intimacy.

You can eliminate 11 of your 14 concerns by entering an open relationship. (Cheating is only cheating if you are breaking the rules.) Your extramarital encounters do not need to be exclusive either: when people interest both of you, invite them home. Just make sure you buy a big bed.
