Czech Wedding Traditions

Breaking the Plate

At the beginning of the Czech wedding reception, a plate is broken at the feet of the bride and groom and they must sweep the chips together. This tradition has its roots in two superstitions; that chips bring happiness and the newlyweds show a will to cooperate by jointly sweeping the chips away and their marriage will therefore be harmonious.

I love learning new traditions! This couple broke their plate on the sidewalk outside the The Council of Foreign Relations as this lovely venue has recently refinished their hardwood floors.

What is your favorite wedding tradition?

(This was another fabulous wedding I worked with In Any Event)
