Instead of a traditional rehearsal dinner they have what is called a “Polterabend”, this is an informal party with lots of food and drink. When finished with your plate tradition says you are to break it, the more pieces the better! It is said that the more pieces you have the more good luck is brought to the happy couple.
You could say that a German groom and his friends have a bachelor party of sorts, but they call it “Junggesellenabschied” (yes we agree that’s a mouth full!) This is where they travel from pub to pub and the grooms friends all take turns buying him a round of drinks, in hopes of getting him sauced!
During the ceremony symbols of good luck are used. For example, traditionally the bride brings bread and salt with her down the isle to ensure good crops for their family, while the groom brings grain for good fortune. And when they leave the church afterwards walking on fir boughs is said to bring hope, luck and fertility to them.
After the ceremony the bride usually carries with her a long piece of white ribbon of which is cut and distributed to each guest for them to tie to their antenna. This will ensure them a safe trip home.

1) Do you have to send save the dates?
To answer that question…NO! These are not a necessary item or a must have. However…they can be helpful! For instance if you are planning a wedding during busy vacation times like the summer or around a holiday, you may want to send them. Just make sure that you plan accordingly to give people ample time to prepare.2) When should the save the dates go out?
We think a good time is any where between 6-12 months beforehand. The sooner you send them out the easier it will be for out of town guests to make arraignments and any other guests for that matter.3) What is on the save the date?
You should include the basics, names, date and location. Plus you might want to include any info that would be necessary for example, phone numbers for accommodations etc.4) Who gets a save the date?
The only people that should get one are the people you are inviting to the wedding. You wouldn't want someone who will not be invited to get one, then they and you would feel bad afterwards if they are not invited.5) Should it match the invitations?
This we feel is a personal choice, there are no “invitation police” that will come after you if it doesn't match. If you choose to match that's fine and if not that's fine too. This is really a personal preference choice.
