I just went to my cousin’s wedding over the weekend, and they had bottles of vodka on each table which was supposedly polish tradition.  When the bride and groom came in they thanked everyone and dureing the toasts everyone did shots instead of drank champeign.  Our table had some lemonade to dilute but a lot of his family was taking it straight.  Don’t know if your family are drinkers or not, but maybe you can incorporate this into your coctail hour.

Miss Avocado’s Fiance is Polish!

The Bedding Down

I think she had some other posts where she mentioned Polish customs… I could be mistaken.  Just click on her name to see her archives :-).

 mrbee I don’t know if you want to scare her by linking to that post, LOL

DCBride I think I might be able to help you a little bit, as I am trying to incorporate Polish touches throughout the day as well.

 I am actually at the library today copying some pages out of a book that speaks about all kinds of fun Polish customs.

Did you know their is a holiday in Poland where they drop wax into water and then pull the wax out and attempt to predict the future with it? It’s kind of like a fortune telling thing. I’m not sure what kind of wedding you are having, but that might be something you would be interested in incorporating for a lighthearted touch. 

 I have a few posts in the works for things like this, PM me if you want ot talk more in depth 🙂

I also just remembered that I guest posted for Bridal Guide on this very topic: http://www.bridalguide.com/community/blogs/bride-to-bride/international-marriage-traditions/

The penny toss that I mention in that post would be a great addition 🙂

Also, in doing my research today I stumbled on some folklore regarding a plant called Lubczyk, commonly known as lovage. It was commonly believed by Poles that it had the power to make someone love you. It might be something you could tuck into your bouquet?
