Bread, Salt and Wine for the Bride and Groom.
According to Polish wedding tradition,
bread, salt and wine are very important and are included in the reception.
The eating of Bread represents never being hungry. Salt is a reminder
that times may be difficult and tears may be shed, but that the bridal
couple will cope with whatever may happen. Wine represents good health
and good spirits.
We recently tied those knots and have tips, tricks and trials to share:
Tip: Including traditions that
are particular to your family or culture can add memorable highlights
for both your wedding day and for your wedding album. Conversely, do
not be afraid to incorporate new traditions that you find meaningful
personally - it is your wedding! If you decide to add these touches
to your wedding or reception, be sure to include them in your wedding
program if they are in the ceremony. If at the reception, have someone
make an announcement describing the tradition and its meaning so that
all of the guests can appreciate what you are doing. Additionally you
might want to let the photographer know so that he or she will be prepared
to catch all the action! A nice touch on the eating of bread would be
to have a happily married woman make the loaf of bread for your wedding
or reception to increase the symbolic value.

Let the sound of the great highland bagpipe
add a note of distinction to your wedding. The
pipes have long been a tradition for Scottish and Irish weddings. But
you do not need Scottish or Irish roots to appreciate their special
contribution to your celebration. They can be used to welcome the guests
as they arrive for your wedding, lead the groom and groom’s men or the
bride and bride’s maids into the service, or even entertain your guests
while photographs are taken after the ceremony, as they go through your
receiving line. You can have them perform outside your reception site
as guests arrive, announce the new bride and groom entering the reception
or sound the fanfare as you leave. Norm Weaver would enjoy working with
you to develop a special program of bagpipe music for your special wedding.
With more than 20 years experience in piping for weddings, he can also
help you find ways of adding other touches of Celtic heritage to make
your wedding even more memorable.
