在上一篇文章里,我们讲了英美婚礼的几处不同,有些不同也许你已经注意到了,有些也许让你摸不着头脑。继续跟着普特君来看看英美婚礼到底有什么不一样吧!

8. Brits often pay for their bridesmaids’ dresses

在英国,通常伴娘的礼服钱由新娘出


There are few personal injuries greater than that of having to shell out a few hundred dollars for a bridesmaid dress you wouldn't be caught dead in any context other than a wedding.
想想看,买件伴娘礼服要花好几百美元,除了在婚礼这种场合,估计不会再有这种肉疼的事了。
Fortunately, if you're a bridesmaid in the UK, you won't have to — there, brides normally pay for their bridesmaids' dresses.
不过,如果你是英国的伴娘,恭喜你,又省了一笔钱——在英国,伴娘的礼服通常是由新娘付钱的。
9. In the UK, the bride doesn’t enter the room last
在英式婚礼上,新娘不是最后一个出场的


If you think about the procession order for most of the weddings you've attended, you may have noticed that, in the US, the bride tends to be the last person to enter the room. In the UK, this isn't usually the case — instead, the bride precedes her bridesmaids, who will hold up her train or veil as she walks down the aisle.
回想一下你参加过的婚礼,你会发现,在美国,新娘一般都是最后一个出场的;而在英国却不是这样——新娘后面会跟着伴娘,她们负责牵着新娘婚纱的裙裾和头纱。

10. The groom faces away from the bride
英式婚礼上,新郎会背对着新娘


In the US, the groom faces the bride and watches as she walks down the aisle. But, in the UK, it's customary for the groom to face away from the bride and turn around only when she reaches the altar.
在美国,新郎会面对着新娘,看着她慢慢走向自己。但英国的习俗是,新郎背对着新娘,直到她走过来了再回头。
William and Kate stuck to this tradition when they got married back in 2011, if you were wondering.
威廉王子和凯特王妃在2011年结婚的时候就遵循了这个传统。
11. Weddings in the UK are shorter
英式婚礼时长会比较短


Weddings in the US tend to have a lot of different components — there are the bachelor and bachelorette parties, a bridal shower, a rehearsal dinner, and all of the random activities that people like to tack onto their weddings, often making their wedding day turn into a wedding weekend.
美式婚礼往往有很多不同的活动——有单身派对、新娘婚前派对、晚宴预演,以及在婚礼上的一些即兴活动,通常会把为期一天的婚礼变成一个婚礼周末。
According to BBC America, weddings in the UK don't have quite so much going on. People have bachelor and bachelorette parties, but not much else. This ensures that a wedding lasts a day, max, rather than the drawn-out weekend wedding affair that can happen in the states.
英国广播公司美国台表示,英式婚礼会比较简单,一般都只有单身派对。这样确保了婚礼最多持续一天,而不是像美国一样持续一整个周末。
12. The first dance happens at different times
英美婚礼跳第一支舞的时间不同


In The US, the first dance between the newly-married couple happens when they are "announced" into the dining room at the start of dinner. In the UK, the first dance happens after the meal, when the cake has been cut.
美式婚礼上,新婚夫妇的第一支舞是在他们宣布晚宴开始的时候,而在英国,第一支舞是在进餐之后,切好蛋糕的时候开始的。
13. British couples rarely write their own vows
英国夫妇几乎不写他们自己的誓言


One thing you might not see at a British wedding? Personalized vows. According to Inside Weddings, this is because most people hold their weddings through the Church of England, which uses the same script for every wedding.
在英式婚礼上,你可能看不到新婚夫妇个性化的誓言。Inside Weddings表示,这是因为大多数人是通过英格兰教会结婚的,而他们为每一场婚礼宣读的内容都是一样的。
14. British wedding cake is often fruit cake
英式婚礼上的蛋糕一般都是水果蛋糕


In the US, you'll find that wedding cakes are available in pretty much any flavor, from vanilla to chocolate to pink champagne. For UK weddings? This may not be the case. According to Inside Weddings, many traditional weddings in the UK serve … fruitcake.
在美国,你会发现,婚礼蛋糕有各种各样的口味,从香草到巧克力到粉香槟等等。但是英式婚礼可不是这样。Inside Weddings表示,在英国,很多传统的婚礼蛋糕都是水果口味的。
