Wedding Rituals

As part of our dedication to create highly individual wedding experiences, our InterContinental wedding managers have access to a global pool of local knowledge on wedding rituals from around the world. You might have heard of “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue”, or the Japanese tradition of “Kagami-Biraki” (opening the wooden barrel of Sacred Sake), which is a toast to the couple’s health and happiness. Whether you choose an international ritual or create your own, you can be sure that any sentiment you feel strongly about can be made into a beautiful and poetic ritual as part of your celebration. Our wedding manager will be happy to introduce you to more rituals, a few of which are explained opposite.


PEBBLES CEREMONY Origin: Ireland This ceremony asks your guests to find a small pebble and make a wish on it for your marriage. The guests are then asked to place those pebbles in a vase, which you will keep to hold their wishes for your marriage. This vase, with its special pebbles in it, can also be used to hold flowers on your anniversaries, which will remind you both of your wedding day and the loving friends and family who shared it with you.

BOMBONIERE WEDDING FAVOURS Origin: Italy Bomboniere are gifts given out on special occasions, such as weddings, to guests. This typically involves five sugared almonds representing health, wealth, happiness, fertility and long life, wrapped in tule and tied with ribbon.

TEA CEREMONY Origin: China The tea ceremony is a significant event in a traditional Chinese wedding and allows the newly weds to show respect to their parents. A newlywed couple will kneel in front of both sets of parents and serve tea to them, as well as their older relatives. In return the parents will present the couple with gifts and a blessing.
