Weddings Around the World: Multicultural Canada

The Catholicgauze/Catholicgauzette wedding post is coming. But now it is time for long-time reader Canada to write about how diverse Canada is when it comes to weddings. If you wish to submit an article about your culture/country's wedding traditions just comment below and we will make it its own post!

The most common and noticeable observation in Canadian cultural geography is that Canada prides itself on being a cultural mosaic.

Diversity and expressions of traditions and cultures is welcomed here in your neighbour to the north.

We see this most in times of celebrations such as holiday festivals or weddings.

Some Canadians bring together their cultures of the families in terms of dress, ceremonial tradition and of course food. It is not uncommon to have 2 different wedding ceremonies reflecting different cultures.

In Canada, wedding photos happen in scenic outdoor locations, even sometimes in winter. This happens whether the wedding has been at a Church of city hall.

Some Canadians opt for the cottage wedding of going to some place a few gours outside of town and doing a more casual atmosphere in dress and celebration.

So in the Canadian culture of weddings, cultural diversity rules.
