    Wedding Houses & traditions

    I saw one, and now I know what it was. Also, an Amish friend got married about a year ago. Some of the boys picked up the bride, & tossed her over a fence where the groom caught her. Another Lancaster tradition, but I wonder if common in other areas.
    If the groom drops the bride, it might not be a good start for the marriage 🙂

    If nothing else, the Amish are usually pretty adaptable within their own ordnung. Why NOT a temporary wedding house? It’s not unlike wedding tents among the English(smaller scale, but still “temporary”).

    I’ve known about the wedding “kitchens” (portable, temporary)…it actually seems like the wedding house should have come first (chicken or egg?) 😉

    Interesting…I’ll be interested to hear about the next Amish innovation!
