WEDDINGS AND CULTURE: BUDDHISM

Mar 8, 2021 | Without category | 0 comments

Marriage is regarded as a celebration of love as a social institution in Buddhism, with a significant focus on each individual’s background and heritage.

The religious aspect of a wedding is not as vital in Buddhism, meaning that each marriage ceremony will vary according to the culture of those getting married. In Buddhism, there is a celebration of a Buddhist blessing instead of a “wedding”, in which the marriage and the couple are blessed.

The celebration overfills with symbology; a fundamental part of the ceremony is the offerings made by the couple, such as food. Each ceremony depends on the individuals involved.

Here at Make it Happen BCN, creating unique religious wedding ceremonies for couples is at the heart of what we do. We have a deeply embedded passion for creating interfaith weddings that celebrate each person’s different cultures brought together by love.

 

Why Catalonia is perfect for a Buddhist wedding

 

If you’re after a certain vitality to enhance your big day, Catalonia offers many perfect locations for you to choose from. A hub of multiculturalism, it has many stunning venues that lend themselves to a Buddhist wedding.

 

Beautiful and Natural Locations

 

A main draw of Catalonia is its expansive and breathtaking scenery. From tranquil islands in the glimmering Mediterranean Sea to exclusive locations hidden in the mountains, there is much to behold across its scenic landscape.

You may want to celebrate next to the stunning limestone cliffs of Parc Natural del Garraf in Stiges, or head to La Seu d’Urgell to embrace its epic mountain views. Whichever you choose the closeness to nature is unforgettable.

To learn more about the beautiful locations we have featured, and others, take a look at our blog on Catalonia’s charming wedding locations.
