If you’ve listened to our episode on Dating Danes and have been really applying yourself, you might be starting to think about Danish weddings… 


Both Sam and Josefine have (separately!) had Danish weddings that are a little bit different to how other countries do it. But what are some of the things to expect when going to a Danish wedding?


In this bonus episode of What the Denmark we’re speaking to social historian Caroline Nyvang and Anna Askov, editor of Gift ved første blik or “Married at First Sight” about Danish wedding traditions.


Some of things this episode covers:


Danish marriage traditions from the 1800s-1900sWhy do people get married - or not - in Denmark today?How ‘Married at First Sight’ has become such a popular Danish exportWhat does a traditional wedding day look like in Denmark? And where did these traditions come from?How easy is it to get married in Denmark? - Ærø “Europe’s Las Vegas”Why are Danish divorce rates so high?
