Learn More About Globe de Mariage

The tradition of Globe de Mariage (also called Globe de Mariée) display pieces began in France, in the 1800's. Newlyweds would record the beginning of their married life by creating a small collection of mementoes under a glass dome. This marriage dome would preserve their wedding souvenirs as well as tell the story of their wedding day and new life together.

Placed prominently in the formal dining room, it typically would hold the bride's crown on a cushion and her wax floral bouquet. The bride and groom would choose various items as symbols that told their story as a couple. Smaller globes would often just include a single porcelain vase with wax flowers that represented the bride's bouquet. These smaller globes would be displayed individually or sometimes as a matching pair.
