@VickyAurea: A pourout is where the bride and groom throw money to local children as they leave church after the ceremony. It was a very strong tradition until recently.

@SpecialSundae: I’m a ridiculous Dr. Who nerd now. I have a bit of a fangirl crush on David Tennant. lol. Edinburgh is definitely somewhere we will be going. Both sides of my family have Scottish ancestry, so Scotland in general is pretty high on the list.
