Polterabend; Hochzeitsbräuche

 
Gasthof
Hallo liebes Englischforum,

Ich habe die Frage, ob es in UK/USA usw so etwas gibt wie ein "Polterabend"

Vielen Dank im Voraus

Hey Gasthof,

The United States is pretty big, so maybe there is a tradition like Polterabend somewhere in the country, but I've never seen or heard of it where I've been/lived.

Cheers,
Yama

We don’t have the plate-smashing event in the UK either.

Although, there is/was a tradition (at least in Scotland) of having a ‘show of presents’ shortly before the wedding, where the bride shows off the gifts the couple have received (but any breakages were purely accidental :))

A description here; http://www.wikihow.com/Plan-a-Show-of-Presents-Before-a-Scottish-Wedding

I’ve read that in Germany it’s more common to give money(?) as a wedding present rather than, say, a toaster - is this the case?

Hi @ all,

Have heard the word "shower" being used in a US-context, e.g.

bridal shower / baby shower ... is this the same thing?

TIA

Yes, gifts of money are often given – and there are imaginative ways of doing so; http://www.basteln-gestalten.de/geldgeschenke
