The families of the Dutch bride and groom host a party before the day of the wedding vows.
Traditionally, the couple sit on a throne, beneath the pines, as their guests come to bless them and wish them happiness.
Dutch wedding receptions are famous for serving heavy foods.
Two traditional items served at a marriage celebration in Holland are sweetmeats called, "bridal sugar" and spiced wine known as "bride's tears."
After a Dutch wedding, newlyweds in Holland might plant lilies-of-the-valley around their house.
This tradition symbolizes "the return of happiness" and the couple can then celebrate and renew their love with each blooming season.
