no problem! is she married? i bet she told you that because she doesn’t want you to do something she did at her wedding. or she’s jealous that you get to have one. either way, she’s crazy.

also, there is a new orleans board! it’s here.

I think it’s mainly a SOUTH Louisiana tradition, regardless of religion. I’m from Central/North Louisiana, and I’ve never been to a wedding with a second line before. I moved to Baton Rouge about 3 years ago, and I’ve seen pictures of weddings from down here where they did a Second Line.

(Heck, I’m Baptist, where I’m from we don’t even drink or dance at our weddings!)

My Fi is from Louisiana and I recently learnt about the 2nd line.  We’re incorporating it into the wedding and though we’re catholic all of my research on it never referred to our faith.  Just that its a New Orleans tradition!  Go for it!

Woah, I’ve never heard of this (northerner here!) but am intrigued after reading those links Kitzy posted — does that mean you would have a PARADE at/during/after your wedding!?

Because that is awesome!

@daydreamwanderer:  Yes that is pretty much what it means and it is freaking great!  I can’t wait for our second line.  We are actually doing our second line back up the aisle after we say our I do’s!  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIJVl8XN3nc
