Nu skal vi dans!

Six years after we met at DTU and I visited her hometown, I had the privilege of attending the wedding of my Danish friend, Mette. While the whole wedding concept is generally comparable to what I’ve seen in the United States, a few traditions stand out as special for a Danish “bryllup.” 

It’s good luck for the bride and groom to dance before midnight. “And there’s a risk of that not happening?” I thought. Surprisingly, yes. Mette and Asger led with the first dance at ten ’til midnight, and the dancing continued until 5:30 am, just in time to shut our eyes before the sun flooded the horizon.
