Romanian Weddings


It’s the weekend again so it’s wedding time. The streets are alive with the sound of noisy, ribboned cars driving between the church, photo sessions and the reception. One of our hosts talked about the social obligations of weddings. Those on a tight budget dread receiving an invitation because of the ‘wedding tax’. Apparently, well-run wedding can nett 100K euros for the happy couple with firm expectations of the value of gifts from each guest. I guess, over time, once all young people have married the money has gone around in circles. Too bad for those who don’t marry. The bridal outfits can be quite revealing!
