This fun infographic, created by Taylor of Invaluable, showcases wedding traditions from around the world. We’ll see some crazy concepts, like how in Germany, couples physically saw a log on their big day. However, a few of the traditions are super cute like the Mexican knot-tying or the Philippine dove release. Scroll through to see if any would work for your big day!


Every bride wants to make her wedding unique and perfectly tailored to her personality, which can be a daunting task. An easy way to incorporate individuality into a ceremony is through the inclusion of traditions. As some weddings move away from classic elements like garter toss, the adherence to two wedding colors and even the traditional first look, it is nice to find a way to still incorporate some traditions. A fun way to modernize is through infusing the cultural heritage of the soon-to-be married couple.

Taylor spends her free time watching nineties romcoms, and helping her friends pull together the details of their walk down the aisle. As an obsessive organizer she loves to focus on all of the details.
