Regional Wedding Traditions





I was born in what my family knows as the South (though others claim the bootheel of Missouri isn't far enough south to be true South). In my family wedding receptions were, essentially, cake or maybe a meal in the church basement.

But I was raised around Chicago, and church receptions here are much more elaborate affairs than the ones of my youth. A hall is rented, a band is hired and the party lasts until midnight.





I would venture to guess wedding traditions might even vary family to family.

And they've changed, for various reasons. The custom of throwing rice at the bride and groom is far less common today (you know the reasons).
So, what traditions do you like best at weddings? Are there any you can think of that may be different from one part of the country to another? Or ones that are unique to your own family?

I always loved the doves and the throwing of bird seed.
