Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Cambodian weddings are very elaborate affairs with an ancient and rich history. What is a distinctive feature of the bridal pair's traditional wedding attire?

Answer: Jewelled embroidery

As is the case with other developing countries, people in Cambodia tend to marry at a young age (as young as 16 for the women, and 19 for the men), and many marriages are arranged by the couple's families. Traditionally, a Cambodian (Khmer) wedding lasted seven days and seven nights - which were later scaled back to three, and by the 1980 to just one and a half days. The wedding starts with the groom's arrival at the bride's home, followed by a religious ceremony - in which the bride and the groom's hands are tied together with red threads - and the exchange of ritual gifts. Special foods are prepared for the occasion; wedding music (called "phleng kar") plays a prominent role in the festivities.

The most striking feature of Cambodian wedding attire is the richness of the decorations, which involve gold and silver embroidery with jewelled inlays, as well as pieces of jewellery worn around the neck, wrists, and waist. Many brides also wear tiaras or other jewelled headdresses. The main reason for this lavish use of bling is showing respect to the members of both families, especially the parents and parents-in-law, who will offer their blessings to the couple. The bride's dress usually consists of a wrap skirt ("sampot") and a top or blouse, while the groom may wear a high-necked jacket and baggy trousers, often ornamented with an embroidered sash. Both outfits, generally made of silk, come in bright, festive shades of red, pink, yellow, blue, or green; the bride and groom wear the same colours. It is not uncommon for the bridal pair to change their clothes seven or eight times during the celebrations.

2. In modern Scottish weddings the groom will often wear a kilt, and the bride a long white dress with a plaid. Historically what article of clothing is it traditional for the bride to buy for the groom?

Answer: Sark (shirt)

The Scottish wedding sark is the exchange of gifts between the groom and the bride. Traditionally the bride buys the groom his shirt, or sark, and the groom pays for the bride's dress. Since Queen Victoria's time, Scottish brides generally wear a long white bridal gown, and many opt to include a plaid (a long piece of tartan cloth) attached to the shoulder and opposite waist. The groom often chooses to wear a kilt complete with sporran, tartan waistcoat, velvet jacket and the crisp white sark. The arisaid is the female equivalent of a Great Kilt. A large expanse of tartan cloth is folded and pleated into a garment and affixed with a belt. The arisaid has been used as a wedding gown in earlier times by brides.

Red Crew's smpdit, mother of a highland dancer, has had much experience in pinning plaids.
3. What does a groom from Java traditionally wear at his waist?

Answer: Jewelled dagger

Indonesia includes over 6000 inhabited islands, so it is not surprising that traditional wedding attire varies depending on the region from whence the couple arises. The couple on the stamp are wearing wedding clothes most closely resembling the style traditional to Java - the man has a jewel-encrusted dagger, and both are wearing gold on their crowns and flower garland adornments. The woman wears a sarong (as on the image) or kebaya, which is a traditional Indonesian long tunic, often with a lace/floral pattern. Rich colors such as red are popular throughout Indonesia, usually accented with gold. The crowns have different traditional shapes across the country, and are generally quite large for the bride and smaller for the groom. There are several parts of the ceremony, which extends over many days. On Java, one tradition includes a ceremonial washing of the couple by their parents, symbolizing the love and care that has been showered on them and will continue into their married life.

4. Swedish weddings are similar to other Protestant European weddings with some minor differences. Which of the following is *NOT* true about Swedish weddings?

Answer: A Swedish bride always wears a daisy chain in her hair

In Sweden, there is no tradition of the bride's father giving his daughter away. Groom and bride will typically walk down the aisle together. When Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel married, Victoria asked her father to walk her down the aisle. A compromise was made when she walked almost to the altar with her father. Prince Daniel then took over, and they walked the last few steps together.

The bachelor, or hen party, is normally planned by the impending bride or groom but in Sweden, both these people will be caught unaware when they are "kidnapped" by friends to spend a whole day or weekend together.

Swedish wedding speeches start with a short toast to the bride and groom. Over the night there will be 8-12 speeches including screenings of videos from the bachelor and bachelorette parties.

In Sweden, when a couple becomes engaged, both the man and the woman exchange rings. Then only the bride will get a second ring at the marriage ceremony. Traditionally engagement rings are plain wedding bands with the bride's wedding ring replete with gem(s).

In traditional Swedish weddings, daisy chains were the standard part of bridal attire. They symbolised purity, chastity and innocence. In modern times, a bride is more likely to wear a tiara or other piece of jewellery featuring daisy chains but even this practice is fading.

5. Traditionally, what does the headdress worn by a Japanese bride hide?

Answer: Horns of jealousy

In a traditional Shinto wedding, the headdress, or tsunokakushi, is worn over a traditionally styled wig. The Japanese word means "horn hiding", to symbolize the bride setting aside ego to be a gentle wife. Another headdress worn by some brides is a wataboshi, a domed hat over the traditional hairstyle, which serves to hide the bride's face much as a veil does in western weddings. The bride wears a white kimono, traditionally an embroidered silk one called a shiromuku, although some brides wear more brightly colored robes. The groom wears a layered kimono with white inner layers and black outer, with the family crest embroidered upon it.

The ceremony includes a ceremonial drinking of sake - three cups, three times each, representing the couples' past, present and future. Shinto weddings are a fairly recent phenomenon, popularized by the 1900 marriage of Prince Yoshihito to Kuko Sadako at the Imperial Palace.

6. One Chinese wedding tradition is to wear red and gold on your wedding day. What does this combination mean?

Answer: Good luck and prosperity

Red symbolises good luck in the Chinese culture and is traditionally the colour of wedding dresses. Gold, symbolising wealth and prosperity may be worn as part of the fabric pattern but generally is worn as jewellery. It is traditional for the grooms family to present jewellery, as part of her bride-price. It must be made of 24 carat gold and includes bangles featuring dragons and phoenixes. older family members usually pass on family heirlooms as a gesture of acceptance, and whatever jewellery is given, the bride is obligated to wear all of it immediately and for the duration of the wedding.

It is not just the wedding dress that is red and gold, invitations are also traditionally presented in a red envelope with a double happiness symbol on it. Gifts are not traditionally given, instead, a small red bag or envelope displaying wealth and happiness containing money is the preferred gift. An amount containing the numeral 8 is preferred as this is the number for prosperity.

White is not a traditional colour for weddings as it is associated with death and sadness, however with Western influencing modern brides, many are foregoing the traditional red for the Western white.

7. Arab countries have fascinating wedding customs. One of the most important parts of a traditional Moroccan wedding for a bride is the "beberiska" ceremony, involving which of the following?

Answer: Having her hands and feet decorated with henna

A traditional Moroccan wedding can last up to seven days and involves many rituals that take place before the actual ceremony. Some of these customs are shared with other Arab countries, but others are uniquely Moroccan. The "furnishing party", in which furniture and other household items are delivered to the bridal pair's new home, generally occurs five days before the wedding. On the night before the wedding, the bride-to-be is taken to a "hammam" (public bath) and given a milk bath to purify her. Then her "negafa" (wedding attendants, usually older, married women) help her to dress in a "takchita" (a richly embroidered kaftan), adorn her with jewelry, and darken her eyes with kohl.

The "beberiska", or henna ceremony, takes place immediately after this: henna artists are invited to come and paint the bride's hands and feet, as well as those of her attendants. These elaborate decorations include shapes and symbols meant to ward off the evil eye, bring good luck, and increase fertility; sometimes the groom's name is hidden among these symbols. At the end of the henna ceremony, the negafa take the bride aside and explain the "secrets" of marriage to her. On the wedding day, the bride is often carried to the wedding site in an "amariya", a palanquin-like structure carried by four or six bearers. She will change her outfit several times during the day - traditionally seven times. The groom, on the other hand, may initially wear a suit, then change into a traditional (and more comfortable) robe called a "djellaba".

Though in modern-day Morocco, especially in urban areas, wedding celebrations rarely last the full seven days (unless the couple and their families have a lot of money and spare time), the henna party is always included - as well as lots of luscious food.

8. Brides in Italy are encouraged to rip which item of their apparel to bring good luck to the union?

Answer: The veil

Brides in Italy follow many customs that are similar throughout Europe, the bridal gown is generally long and white with a veil. As a mainly Catholic country the dress should be modest for the church ceremony. The veil is thought to ward off evil spirits, but the bride is supposed to rip a small portion to bring good luck to the marriage. In areas of Southern Italy, the veil length is decided by how long the engagement lasted, one metre of fabric per year.

Another Italian custom is to cut the groom's tie into small pieces that are sold or auctioned to the guests. The more money that is raised, the more financially prosperous the marriage will be.

Italian brides, in common with many cultures across Europe will incorporate 'Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue' into their costume. In addition, something green is also often worn on the wedding eve for good luck. They will also remove any gold jewellery for the day and will only wear their gold wedding band.

Red Crew's smpdit does love a nice wedding, especially if there is dancing after.
9. What garment could you expect to see a bride and groom wearing at a traditional Vietnamese wedding?

Answer: Ao dai

The ao dai is a long shirt typically worn over pants, or trousers. Ao means shirt, while dai means long. It is a long-sleeved tunic, form-fitting at the top to the waist, with a full length split from just above the hip to the hem. Trousers, or skirts are worn under the tunic. The ao dai is worn by both men and women, especially during formal events and ceremonies, such as weddings or Tet. Ao dai is the required dress for schoolteachers, and many businesses, as well as some school students.

Although modern western traditions are quickly influencing weddings around the world, you can still find ao dais worn in Vietnamese ceremonies. Red is a particularly popular color for the bride. It is thought to bring fortune and happiness. Brides can also be seen wearing white or pastel colors. The bridesmaids, however, wear bright colors such as yellow and blue for happy, celebration. The groom may choose to match the bride's colors with his ao dai, or tunic.

Non la is a conical hat. Ao ba ba is a shirt, similar to the ao dai, but with a shorter length that ends below the hips. Ao tu than is a robe worn over clothes. It has four pieces of fabric that is wrapped or tied and is known as the four-part dress.

10. Ukrainian weddings are steeped in tradition. What is the name of the embroidered shirts worn by both the bride and the groom in traditional Ukrainian weddings?

Answer: Vyshyvanka

At a traditional Ukrainian wedding, the bride and groom wear vyshyvankas. Vyshyvankas are embroidered shirts typically depicting the bride and groom's region in Ukraine. Historically, the bride embroiders her blouse far in advance of the wedding. The groom's shirt is embroidered by the bride or the groom's mother. Both shirts have embroidery at each opening of the shirt, often including the hem, to keep evil spirits from entering the body. The intricate embroidery is done with regional colors.

Rushnyks are towels embroidered by the bride. Plakhta are skirts. Korsetkas are sleeveless jackets worn over the shirts.
