|Our trip to Solvang earlier this year is about the only 'Bit o' Denmark' D can claim, aside from his genetics|
So I while I still love the half-joking idea of giving out wrapped æbleskiver as wedding favors, D and I have been searching for other Danish wedding traditions that would be appropriate for us to incorporate. And lo, I think I have found it: the Danish Wedding Waltz!
The idea is that guests crowd around the couple, getting closer and closer until, at the end of the song, there isn't any more room for the bride and groom to move (is this, perhaps, when wedding guests cut the groom's socks? We're probably skipping that one, and the marzipan wedding cake, which will send the bride to the ER, ahem).
D and I don't have a "special song," really, so we're both kind of digging this as a first dance idea. What do you think? Would it be too hard to explain to guests what they are supposed to do?
What did you do to incorporate both of your cultures?
