Below we have tried to compile a little more useful about wedding and wedding planning

Since 1 May 2009, marriage has been gender neutral. Previously, same-sex couples could only register partnerships. Marriages in Sweden are not valid without two witnesses who are over 18 years of age. According to Swedish law, the person who is consecring must have the right to marry. If you belong to any religious community that does not have a marriage license, you must also marry in a civil society in order for the marriage to apply legally.

Obstacle testing
The obstacle test is done to show that there are no obstacles for a couple to get married. (For example, that someone is bound in another marriage, or that there is too close kinship between the contracting parties.) In the past, the churches had the same purpose, but nowadays they turn to the tax authority's population registration department. A form assures that there is no impediment to marriage. The tax authority checks in its register and then issues a certificate. This is left by the couple concerned to the marriage eter. The obstacle test may be issued no more than four months before the ceremony. The marriage affidavit fills in the certificate after the ceremony and then sends it to the Swedish Tax Agency. After that, the ceremony is registered in the population register.
The law states that both parties must be over 18 years of age, unless you have received a special permit from the County Administrative Board.
Obstacle testing in the Nordic countries also applies to Swedish marriage 1888s. Abroad, obstacle testing can be carried out at the Swedish Embassy or at the Swedish Consulate.
Foreign nationals who intend to be married in Sweden must have their obstacle test done in their home country according to the country's law, otherwise the ceremony there risks being considered invalid. The embassy in Sweden of the home country should be able to provide information on how to proceed. However, the foreign national who has lived in Sweden for at least two years can be tested in Sweden. The population register offices can provide more detailed information.

You can still have the information about your impending marriage announced in the Church, but not as before three times without one, but in the congregations of both parties. Anyone who wants to can still arrange a listening reception. Handy if you don't want a gift opening on your wedding day.

Wedding planning

Think carefully about how you want your wedding to be and what the conditions are. A big one with lots of guests, a smaller one with just family and close friends. It's important to make the decision yourself before the outside world starts to "weigh in".

A traditional wedding with relatives and many guests – with food and speeches – is what you often see in front of you when weddings come up. But you don't have to feel bound by it. Friends in the first place and a fun party can be a variation while for others it is enough to have your very own ceremony, alone or in the circle of the very closest.

It doesn't take a lot of company to carry out a church ceremony. Two witnesses are enough, and it could be the organist and the church janitor if you like. An option if you do not feel at home in the religious wedding rituals, is a civil wedding. It can also be an option when coming from different religions or cultures. Otherwise, with a background in different regions, one can of course choose to be married in the manner of both contracting parties.

To consider before the wedding invitation:

Save the date; ask all guests to reserve your wedding day in their calendars already when you have booked the wedding date. You can inform them that a more formal invitation will come at a later stage.
Do you want to bring children or not? If you want the little ones to stay at home, no one should raise their eyebrows about it. Just be clear from the start that you want an adult-only party.
Keep in mind that if you charge an envelope fee for the wedding party, you should not at the same time wish your wedding gifts from your guests.
In the formal wedding invitation you should include information such as time, date, place, what you will offer, attire, last response date, bride and groom's name and contact details for the hosts.

costs

Who's paying for the wedding? In the past, it was considered that the bride's parents would be responsible for the party (after all, they got one person less to support in the household).

Today, this is no longer a rule. You can share – perhaps between the bride and groom and the best-off parents, or between all three parties. If the bride and groom are in the best financial position, it may feel natural that they themselves are responsible for the costs.
Make a simple calculation of the costs to see where you end up.

These are factors you should include:

  • Rings
  • Invitation card and thank you card – purchase of finished or with your own print. postage.
  • Any printed program for the ceremony.
  • Solo singing/music in the church if you choose it.
  • the cost of being married elsewhere (where neither party is registered);
  • The bride's equipment, bought or rented, dress, shoes, veil, possibly rent of crown, bridal bouquet.
  • Hairdresser and makeup.
  • Groom's equipment – coat, shirt, bow, shoes.
  • photography
  • Transport from church to party venue, perhaps by specially hired vehicle.
  • The party itself: Food, drink, party venue, possible music and possibly transport.
  • Maybe wedding suite for the bride and groom?

clothing

The bride and groom may be wearing a frock and long dress, but for that reason guests don't have to be as solemnly dressed. What applies is stated on the invitation card.

The groom's attire can vary, ranging from a short wedding dress or perhaps a costume for her, and a suit or jacket for the groom. That outfit is recommended at a morning wedding. However, nothing prevents you from choosing other, perhaps simpler clothes, but then the guests should also be aware of it and have the same opportunity.

Long dress and frack for the bride and groom are still the most common at church weddings. The bride can wear a veil, attached to the crown or a flower arrangement in her hair. If the bride chooses to wear gloves, the left ring finger of the glove should be split up so that the ring can be threaded on the finger.

The groom wears a frack shirt, white vest and white bow tie (bow tie) for his mundering. Military uniform is also a festive costume and nowadays the groom can also wear a tuxedo, something that was previously completely unthinkable. The groom is happy to wear another bridal bouquet matching flower on the stroke or in the buttonhole.

Guests' attire
Guests' attire is listed on the invitation card. If it says nothing at all, it is to decipher as festive attire, i.e. frack. However, since you usually print the upholstery, you have to allow yourself to check if it is frack that is meant when nothing is specified.

jacket
actually means costume. It can be dark with black socks and shoes, but in summer also light. Nowadays you can also wear a stylish combination with a jacket and odd pants, shirt and tie.

Women's attire, if it says jacket on the invitation, can be dress, suit with skirt or trousers, all of just the right festive cut and material.

It can also say "jacket or suit" on the invitation card and then you can wear more elegant clothes if you want, even a long evening dress is fine.

tuxedo

Traditionally not a wedding garment, but nowadays it is common to put "tuxedo" in the invitation and then it is the tuxedo that applies. Tuxedos come in many colours, but in this context it is expected to be black or blue with black shoes and socks.

The ladies' "tuxedo" is evening dress, long or short, according to the label the former if it is dancing but short if it is dinner without dancing.

tailcoat
If it says so on the invitation card, this is what applies to the gentlemen. White frack shirt, white vest and white bow /bow tie (not black, which is professional attire in the restaurant industry). Black shoes and socks.

The corresponding festive attire for women is a long evening dress. If you have a shoulderless dress or one that is without sleeves, you can wear long gloves. In a festive dress you are welcome to glitter and be ornate – in your hair, around your arms and neck.

If the invitation also says holiday costume or frack, it is also allowed to wear folk costume, both for men and women. The same goes for uniform.

Jackett
Is a less common outfit for guests at a wedding, at least in Sweden, but if it occurs, it means a coat with rounded brittle at the front. It can be black or grey to grey/black striped pants. White shirt, black or grey tie or frack shirt with scarf belongs. High, gray hat completes the outfit.

For women, elegant and sober attire applies in the form of a suit or cocktail dress. Hats and gloves are common accessories.

Female guests traditionally do not dress in white at weddings (so as not to compete with the bride) nor do they dress in the color of grief, black. However, there is nothing to prevent the colors from being combined in patterns.

Courtship attire
Bridesmaids and groomsmen wear clothes according to the same holiday as the bride and groom. The bride can have several bridesmaids and the groom several groomsmen, but the most common today is a bridesmaid and a marshal. Bridesmaids, children who participate in the bridal entourage and go before the bride and groom into the church, are well dressed and preferably in similar outfits.

Placement in the church

Traditionally, the bride's relatives take their place to the left of the aisle of the church while the groom sits on the right side. The benches at the front are usually reserved for the closest relatives. But – if one party has little family or few who have the opportunity to participate, one tries, perhaps with the help of the church host, to distribute the guests evenly on both sides.

If one of the bride and groom's parents is divorced, they should still be placed in the church as if they were still married and then on the front benches. It is as parents that they are there. If there are new life partners, you can reason how you want to arrange the continued placement based on it.

March

As soon as the entrance music begins to play, the priest walks up to the altar and then the bridal procession begins - the groom on the right and the bride on the left (the opposite of the custom - but after the ceremony, when the bride and groom have turned for the exit, the position becomes the "correct" one).

The bride and groom's courtship may consist of groomsmen, bridesmaids and bridesmaids.

If there are more marshals and bridesmaids in the bridal party, they enter the church after the bride and groom, with the marshals on the right behind the groom and the bridesmaids on the left behind the bride. If you have a marshal - or, as they say nowadays, a "best man" - he can wait at the front of the altar. The bridesmaids can either walk behind the bride and groom, or if there is a bridesmaid, be at the ready for their task in the first pew on the left side of the aisle. Alternatively, the marshal and the bridesmaid can wait for the bride and groom on either side of the altar.

Sometimes the Anglican custom is also used where the father of the bride "gives away" his daughter. The groom waits at the altar, while the bridesmaids and marshals follow the bride and her father to the altar where the bride is handed over to her future husband. The father then takes his place in the front left pew.

The Marriage Act

After entrance music and hymn singing, the priest's opening words and an explanation of the divine purpose of marriage follow.

After that, the priest or one of the bride and groom's friends reads a Bible text. The congregation then rises to witness the bride and groom's vows to each other.

If the groom's "best man" has been responsible for the ring(s), he now hands them to the groom, who in turn hands them to the priest. The priest turns to the altar and says a prayer.

Now the bride hands over her bouquet to the bridesmaid or bridesmaid or someone who emerges from the front benches. The bride and groom hold the ring/rings together while they make their vows in turn by repeating the priest's words.

The congregation sits down while the bride and groom remain facing the altar. It is the occasion of any music or solo singing and then an intercession, performed by the priest or any friend of the bride and groom. During intercession, the bride and groom kneel at the altar and remain on their knees also during prayer and blessing. When they get up, the bride gets her bouquet back from courtship.

A marriage speech and a hymn usually end the act as the priest also usually hands over the marriage certificate.

Solo vocals

If you have solo singing or music, one of the occasions is just before the exodus (the former are before the first hymn, after the priest announced the marriage and after the last hymn). If the solo is performed at the end, the newlyweds can turn on each other and then expect completely against the congregation.

Exodus

When the starting march is played, the bride and groom train out with the bride and groom in the lead. The bride now walks on the groom's right side. Out on the church steps, the bride and groom then wait in their guests to receive congratulations and well wishes, before heading on to celebrate the event.

Civil marriage

The most common place for civil marriage is The Town Hall or City Hall. At a civil wedding, you were married by a wedding planner. The County Administrative Board can provide more information on how to proceed.

Wedding party

It's always nice to appoint a host or "toastmaster", as we like to say today. The word translates as "master of toasts" and that's exactly what he's supposed to do - make sure that all the opportunities for a toast are presented, from telegrams to registered speakers. Anyone wishing to make a speech during the dinner registers with the toastmaster, who draws up a list of the speakers and their relationship to the bride and groom. It's important to make sure the speeches are given at the right time - not exactly in a heat-sensitive main course or during an ice-cream dessert with a digestive risk. A tip: print the toastmaster's name and phone number right on the invitation so guests know where to register their speech.

If you are many guests, it makes it easier with a placement sketch that is set up adjacent to the dining room.

The bride and groom have each other to the table, the one to the right of the groom. Next to the bride's father sits and next to him the groom's mother. If the wedding director is at dinner and you are, he then sits next to the groom's mother.

In reverse order, it will be on the other side, next to the groom, the bride's mother and she has the groom's father to the table. If the wedding director is a woman, her position comes next.

Engaged and newly in love are not usually distinguished when seating, while doing so with married and cohabiting couples. The bridesmaids and groomsmen of the wedding usually have each other to the table.

Numbers

The person who is expected to give a speech is the bride's father. He welcomes me and brings out a welcome bowl. If it is the bride and groom themselves who are responsible for the party, the bride's father can welcome the bride's father then returns to give a speech to the bride and groom and then he speaks first to the daughter, but also welcomes his new son-in-law. Well-wisher and a living.

The groom's father is expected to speak next. Speaks to the bride and groom and wishes well.

Who will give the acceptance speech for the food depends on the circumstances. If it is the bride and groom themselves who are the hosts, thank the bride's father, who has had the hostess/bride at the table. If it is the bride's parents who are the hosts, it is the groom's father who is responsible for the acceptance speech.

Speech order is then that family and close friends take precedence over more distant relatives. It is also customary for the Marshal to give the "Speech to the Woman" and for the bridesmaids to be spoken for by someone who gives the "Speech to the Man".

One variation of the speech is to perform a specially written lyric for the evening individually or in unison with the other guests. A good solution if you feel insecure, but still want to say a few words of hearts.

We hope to have the pleasure of helping to organise perhaps the most important day of your life!
