Before a small box with an expensive ring came into fashion, young Croatian men proposed marriage with a piece of fruit referred to as obiljezje (the mark). Basically, it’s an ordinary apple with coins stuck into it. If the girl accepted it, the obiljezje would mark her with the man who proposed, thus making them engaged.
The Barjaktar is the “banner holder,” the person who has the honor of waving the Croatian flag in front of the wedding procession as they make their way to town hall or church.
The tradition of the barjaktar is usually bestowed upon the individual considered as being the most funny, crazy and loud!
As guests enter the reception, they are greeted with a stem of rosemary wrapped in ribbon (usually red white and blue) which is pinned like a buttonhole to their left side as a sign of welcome.
In Croatia, guests normally leave a donation for their rosemary buttonholes for good luck.
A custom used to determine who will become the real leader of the house or “wear the pants” when the newlywed couple start living together is basically down to the skill or art of stepping on each other’s feet!
After the actual wedding, the married couple would try to step on each other’s feet and if the groom succeeded to do so before the bride, he would be the head of the house. On the other hand, if the bride managed to step on the groom’s foot, she would become the boss.
Another version of this would see the newlyweds racing to the church doors and the winner would run the house. Hardly fair with a bride in heels and a big dress!
At Croatian weddings, it is up to a master of ceremonies to welcome and entertain wedding guests. Part of this involves offering guests a shot of home-made schnapps. The bottle of schnapps is wrapped in a towel, handmade specifically for the wedding from woven cotton and after the celebrations are over, the master of ceremonies would keep the towel as a very special gift from the bride and groom.
At midnight, a fun tradition known as “Dance with the Bride” typically commences at Croatian weddings. Usually the maid of honor holds a basket into which every guest must make a monetized contribution. The larger the contribution, the longer the dance with the bride!
