Wedding in France
France – hymned by poets country of lovers, romantic and sensible, beautiful and multifaceted. The wedding in France will stay in memory with its exquisite luxury, refined elegance and with atmosphere of an absolute happiness.
Choosing a place
France is rich in wonderful cathedrals and churches built in epoch of mighty kings and beautiful ladies. All of them are open for a wedding ceremony, so the newlyweds can start their life of spouses with the blessing. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and an ancient church Sainte-Genevieve-des-Bois are one of the most popular. The wedding will be particularly romantic and bright in a luxurious atmosphere of a castle. Especially, if you choose a wedding in the Palace of Versailles. Or maybe you dream about the Cote d’Azur – Nice, Monaco, Saint-Tropez? These resorts will definitely impress you with the luxury and faint notes of exotics. Surely the wedding in Paris will never disappoint you; for example, you can organize a fantastic celebration on one of the boat-restaurant floating the Seine.
Any place you choose for the ceremony, the French wedding always impresses with wonderful flower compositions. The tradition to decorate with flowers the place of celebration came from the epoch of Louis ХIV. Each flower has its meaning and should “endow” the newlyweds with happiness, making their love endless and their life long and wealthy. The place of ceremony is necessarily covered with bay leaves.
The wedding dress has a special place in bride’s image. Actually she must have 4 details: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. French brides still respect this old tradition. And they never sew a wedding dress by themselves. It is a very bad sign. As we can see on the photos, the bridal toilette often includes an elegant umbrella, gloves, a bonnet, etc.
The cost of wedding depends, first of all, on its venue. If you watch some wedding video, you’ll probably notice that the French never economize on these celebrations. If they choose a restaurant – it is the best one, if they choose a resort – it is the most prestigious one, if they want a castle – it is also the most sumptuous of all. Paris is traditionally one of the most expensive and luxurious city for the wedding ceremony. The weddings of moderate cost you can see only in the French provinces.
