In the U.S., we have such a thriving wedding industry with a lotÂ 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 marriedÂ too 🙂
Over theÂ last couple of years, that has been harder to ignore asÂ the wedding industry isÂ becomingÂ more and more globalized. Israeli wedding designers popped up seemingly out of nowhere and quicklyÂ 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 AfricaÂ wowing usÂ with super luxuryÂ weddings, while more and more American planners branch out to do destination weddings abroad. In fact, for the first timeÂ the popular Engage Summit is comingÂ 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:
