Norwegian vs. American wedding traditions (Oslo)


I have lived in Norway since I was a teenager Protected content will be getting married to a Norwegian next year. I have only been to one Norwegian wedding before, and no American weddings. We will be getting married in Norway, and I want to be able to prepare my family for differences in wedding traditions. I am looking for any tips, suggestions og insight on possible cultural differences in wedding rituals or etiquette!

One such thing I have become aware of is the role of a toastmaster - something that is definitely very Norwegian, but doesn´t seem to be used at American weddings? I would like my brother to be the toastmaster, but I need to know how to prepare him for the task.

Thanks for your help!
