Isn't it crazy how many details go into planning a wedding?! How many times has someone asked you "what are you doing for…?" and you didn't have an answer? I remember when this happened to me and it was about what would be thrown at me and my new husband as we left! I panicked! How did I let this ball drop?! It's been about 8 years and I don't remember what I chose. But I did a little digging for you and found out why this became a tradition.
"The tradition started in Roman times, where wheat was thrown on the couple after the nuptials as a symbol of fertility. Once wheat became too expensive, rice was used instead … and the tradition stuck. Then enters the Urban Legend that rice will cause a bird's stomach to blow up…"
Well, now we know! But I want to help you answer a different kind of question.
"Are you going to have a bar at your wedding?"
Not only do I want you to have some type of special drink, I want it to YOUR signature drink! Even if you are having a sober wedding, you can still enjoy a really great mocktail or beverage. Make your wedding cater to whatever starts your marriage off on the HAPPIEST of notes!
