For Vikings, marriage wasn’t just a union of the couple, but of families. Marriage was the center of the family in Viking culture, which in turn created intricate and complex traditions, all of them necessary to earn the blessings of the gods. Traditionally, weddings were held on Friday, the sacred day for Frigga, the goddess of marriage, with the celebrations lasting for a full week.
During the wedding ceremony, the groom presents his ancestral sword to his bride, receiving from her a sword of her ancestors. In both sword hilts rest wedding rings, exchanged rings to further consecrate the vows before the gods. While the exchanged swords were often stored away as gifts for the future offspring of the couple, the wedding rings meant that, from that moment on, the bride and groom belong to each other.
