The bride traditionally wears a white or silver wedding gown and a silver or silver and gold crown. Dangling around the crown will be small spoon-shaped bangles. When the bride moves her head the bangles produce a melodic tinkling music. Norwegian tradition holds that the music from the bride’s bangles will ward off evil spirits. During the wedding reception the bride will dance vigorously, the tinkling melody of the bangles will scare off the evil spirits, which try to inhabit the happy bride.
