Since my son, Chip and his sweetheart, Nancy will be marrying in less than 2 months a day doesn’t go buy that something wedding doesn’t enter my mind. Yep, I have all things wedding on the brain these days.
In the pic below, Chip had just popped the question after dinner while they vacationed in Cancun.
On their wedding site the moment is recorded:
“Well, those of us who know Chip knows he does not always play by the rules, and this time was no different. Somehow sneaking the most beautiful engagement ring through customs didn’t make him nervous but the first evening at dinner, Nancy knew something was up! After thanking her for the journey they had been on over the last few years, Chip told Nancy he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her, then got down on one knee, and ask for her to continue to be by his side forever and marry him. Nancy’s enthusiastic “ABSOLUTELY!” was followed by tears, kisses, hugs, and kind wishes from those surrounding them.”
A nice couple across from them grabbed their camera and snapped this pic. You can see the ring box there on the table. This photo always gets me. ♥
Recently, Southern Living sent this lovely issue of Weddings my way.
Inside I found this fun story: ”Burying an unopened bottle of bourbon one month before the wedding, at the exact time of the wedding, at the site of the wedding, ensures good weather on the day of the event.”
The article said it’s very important that the bottle be unopened…no sipping allowed. I guess you have to buy a second bottle if you’re to celebrate the occasion of the “Burying of the Bourbon.”
So, I want to know…did you have any superstitions or die-hard traditions you followed when planning your wedding or a family members wedding?
