Viking Era Wedding Theme

Vikings are known for bravery and fearless qualities, sailing vast distances to reign and plunder. The history of the Vikings is extensive, and most Norse gods are famous for wearing horned helmets. The complex Viking wedding traditions aim to earn the blessings of the gods before becoming a parent and to continue the Viking bloodline. For Vikings, marriage offered stability. It is a way to control reproduction and sexual activity in the community.

Here are some Viking era wedding theme ideas:

  • Hold your wedding in the coastline or on the beach, in line with the Viking Scandinavian traditions.

  • Complete your Norse wedding with Viking drinking horn options.
  • Give custom drinking horns and tankards as wedding giveaways.
  • Drink and enjoy the wedding reception with friends and family following the Norse tradition, like the ceremonial toss using custom drinking horns.
