French national identity is based on the historical origins of the nation in Celtic, Gallo-Roman, and Frankish cultures.The name "France" originally was used to refer to several peoples in the lower Rhineland.It is traditional for the groom to pick up his bride at her house and walk to the chapel.Typically in small towns, children block their path with white ribbons, which the bride cuts to symbolize breaking through these obstacles.
This is a lovely gesture that can be easily adopted and will surely elicit a collective "aww" from the audience.
France takes a highly assimilationist approach to its immigrant populations.
The social position of Beurs (the children of North African immigrants) is an ongoing issue.
Regional identities, such as Provencal and Breton have coexisted with political units of state control.
The degree to which France is today a homogeneous nation is a highly contested topic.
Courtship may be completely omitted, as in cases of some arranged marriages where the couple do not meet before the wedding.
