In recent years, getting married has become more popular again in Switzerland, especially for couples who want to start a family or are over 30 and already have children. In 2020, most couples said ‘I do’ to each other in the largest Swiss canton, Zurich, which is also where most people live. On average, the Swiss spend between CHF 20,000 and 40,000 on a wedding. Many couples want to have a wedding ceremony in addition to a civil ceremony. A ‘natural’ wedding ceremony is becoming more and more popular rather than a traditional church ceremony.
Every wedding includes traditions that have developed over time within the family or are specific to a particular country. Many wedding customs are widespread across countries. Tree-trunk sawing and bouquet throwing are among the best-known wedding traditions. A popular custom in Switzerland is standing in a trellis, which is often made by club members. On the other hand, the bride and groom traditionally hand out sweets wrapped in coloured paper called ‘flints’ to their guests. Sometimes the bride and groom throw the sweets into the crowd, where they are usually collected by eager children.
Another popular tradition in Switzerland is bridal stealing: During the wedding party, the bride is kidnapped and her newlywed must notice that she has gone and then find her. To do this, he usually has to solve various tasks that reveal her whereabouts.
At the end of the wedding ceremony, it is customary in Switzerland for the bride and groom to be carried out by their closest friends. This ritual symbolises the fact that good friendships also endure in a marriage. There is also a beautiful custom in Switzerland for the morning after the wedding: the morning gift. The bride and groom give each other small sentimental gifts. If the husband secretly hides his gift under the bride's pillow during the night, it is said that they will have a happy and healthy marriage.
Thanking guests for coming or for their help with the preparations with small gifts is a popular custom in many countries. The main thing is the sentimental value of the small gifts. In some countries, wedding almonds are traditional gifts for guests. The tradition was originally thought up by the French Sun King Louis XIV. In the classic version, five almonds per guest are carefully wrapped in a sugar coating. The almonds themselves are the symbol for life and the number stands for the five wishes for the wedding: health, a long life, happiness, fertility and prosperity.
