Lithuania is an old country with wedding traditions that stretch back hundreds of years. Over the centuries weddings traditions and customs in Lithuania have evolved very slowly, with one thing remaining constant: the overriding importance of family. Many of the traditions practiced today have deep roots that are easily traced to customs and traditions from long ago.

Eat salt and bread upon entering the reception hall symbols of joy, tears, and work, the three elements of a life together.

This is matchmakers, not the bride and groom. I wanted to show also traditional Lithuanian clothes...
