@thelittleone:  it’s a Russian tradition as well, and we’re were thinking of doing it after we say our vows before we walk back down the isle.

@thelittleone:  It is done by the parents as the bride and groom enter the reception. There was even a Bee blog post on it:

I am Polish, but my wedding was far from a traditional Polish wedding. However the weddings I have been to in Poland would have it done at the reception entrance if at all. It is something more prevalent at country weddings than city ones.

@thelittleone:  anytime!  both my cousin and a college friend (both Russian) did it that way.

I’ve been trying to figure out the same thing! We’ve gone back and forth about it. Either doing it when we walk outside the church after the ceremony. Or as part of my father’s welcome toast at the reception. I think we are leaning towards doing it at the reception since it will be hard to have all the items and explain it to the non Polish guests otherwise.
