SÁMI WEDDINGS. Traditional Sámi weddings are very different from Norwegian, American, or Canadian weddings. Traditionally, there is no written invitation, and guests are invited by word of mouth. Often, there are hundreds or even a couple thousand guests that attend the wedding.
Sámi wedding traditions have many regional variations. Click here to see pictures of a traditional Sámi wedding from Kautokeino. Although many guests are dressed in their traditional Sámi dress, the kofte, the groom is draped with a white ribbon around his neck and torso. The bride is wearing many brooches, many of which belong to her friends and family.
Click here to see pictures of a traditional South Sámi wedding from Røros. Here the bride and groom are wearing a kofte different from the previous example. Another regional difference is that reindeer antlers are being held up in honor of the newly married couple.CorrectIncorrect
