Greece: Wedding traditions around the world

In Greece, the bride’s attendants -all single women – help prepare the couple’s marital bed. Once it is approved by the groom, the ladies throw money and rice on the bed. These symbolize prosperity and putting down roots. They also roll a baby across the bed to guarantee fertility. It is also customary for the best man to shave the groom the day of the ceremony.
