Medieval castle wedding in Bled
Medieval castle weddings are a part of a long-lasting tradition that isstill very popular today with couples arranging their wedding in Bled.
Betrothal was an important part of the medieval wedding tradition. The bride and groom appeared roughly 40 days prior to their catholic wedding in front of a priest and made solemn promises. Medieval brides often wore blue, which is the traditional colour of purity. Later a bridal veil was introduced and it was another symbol of purity, but it was also believed to protect the bride from 'the evil eye.' Garters furthermore became an important part of the medieval wedding wardrobe and the guests tried to grab the garter for good luck.
During the wedding, the bride and groom drank spiced wine from the Wedding Cup. Another important part of the medieval wedding were flowers. The returning crusaders brought a tradition of weaving a crown out of orange blossoms, which only nobles could afford at that time, but today almost any type of flower arrangement you desire is possible for us to organise.

Not all countries will register marriages which take place in a Roman Catholic Church, but organizing a catholic wedding in Slovenia is fairly easy, which is another reason why Bled is a good place to get married.
Documentation required for the catholic wedding abroad
The church paperwork takes some time to complete, so we advise you to start the process as early as possible.
