Wedding industry goes global: 21 Wedding Traditions and Superstitions

In the U.S., we have such a thriving wedding industry with a lot of active associations, industry events, not to mention a huge number of popular wedding blogs and bridal magazines. Our community is so active that it’s often easy to forget that the rest of the world gets married too 🙂

Over the last couple of years, that has been harder to ignore as the wedding industry is becoming more and more globalized. Israeli wedding designers popped up seemingly out of nowhere and quickly took over our Instagram feeds. New York Bridal Market has grown tremendously and now includes a lot of international journalists who fly in to see the latest designs coming out on the runway, just as they do with NY Fashion Week. Wedding planners from Asia, Russia, the Middle East and Africa wowing us with super luxury weddings, while more and more American planners branch out to do destination weddings abroad. In fact, for the first time the popular Engage Summit is coming to Europe.

That’s why I was glad to find this fun infographic on 21 Wedding Traditions and Superstitions from around the world. Check it out:
