In South Korea, it is custom for the groom to give his new mother-in-law a pair of ducks, due to the fact that birds mate for life. Whilst the tradition might have originally involved live ducks, they have since been replaced with wooden replicas that represent the marital dependence of the couple.
One of Peru’s wedding traditions involves a cake pull, where all the single female guests will take hold of a white ribbon attached to the wedding cake and pull on the ribbon with one revealing a ring. Similar to the throwing of the flower banquet tradition in which whoever gets the ring is likely to be then next to be married.
A unique Swedish tradition means that every time the bride leaves the room, the other women at the wedding are then allowed to steal a kiss from the groom – and vice versa for the groom.
